A pop-em-in-your-mouth treat for the holidays!
Something I’ve always been around but have not really mastered was tempering chocolate. It’s something that we do down at my family’s fudge shop, and I’ve studied up on the correct temperatures at which we keep chocolate stored, how to temper it, and how to cool it when finished using it in a candy recipe. But for some reason, I can’t quite get my chocolates at home to temper quite right! I find the double boiler method quite finicky for my hands… but still, I keep trying!
However, I wanted to make something simple enough and quick for a friendly gathering at my house, so I decided to utilize my microwave to make some chocolate meltaways. They’re a simple little chocolate treat that can be flavored a few different ways. In this case, I chose to keep it fairly simple yet still sweet, and added maple sugar to the mix.
