Homemade Flavored Chocolates

Rich chocolate flavored with cinnamon, mint, cream, chili peppers and more. Here are four delicious and simple chocolate recipes easily customized and ready for fruit.








Take a chocolate base of your choice, the darker the better, later you can add milk, whipping cream and the like to your taste.


Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or if one is not available melt in microwave for 45 seconds then stir, then in ten second intervals until liquid. Stir well between every ten seconds, you don't want to burn the chocolate.




Then add your flavorings, you can generally dump in powders and sugars, you'll want to slowly whisk in milk and creams. Taste test often and don't be afraid to experiment, but try small batches so you don't waste good chocolate. I like to use different garnishes to tell flavors apart, powdered sugar, cinnamon, even hot chocolate mix.
