Bilberry chocolates



The best gifts are handmade…I’m sure someone told me that once!

And what better gift than chocolate?!

With that in mind, I decided to make some wild bilberry chocolates.

Its relatively easy to do.

I started by melting down some white chocolate blocks (you could also use cacao butter or another chocolate flavour if you prefer).  Make sure when you melt chocolate you use a “bain marie” - a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, rather than melting the chocolate directly in the saucepan to avoid burning it.
Then melt the coconut cream/butter.

Next, pick your fruit flavour - I chose SUPERGOODFRUITS wild bilberry smoothie powder for speed.  But you could also use any of their freeze-dried fruits and grind them into a powder using a coffee grinder or blender.

Put your chosen moulds into the freezer, so they are cold before you put anything into them to prevent the ingredients separating. I use silicon lolly moulds and also ice cube trays.

In a blender, combine the melted chocolate, coconut and fruit powder.


Let the mixture cool to room temperature.

Then pour into the moulds.


Freeze immediately.

I left my candies in their moulds in the freezer overnight, but they should be done after a couple of hours.

Simply remove the chocolates from their moulds and start handing them out!




Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup SUPERGOODFRUITS wild bilberry powder
  • 1/2 cup melted white chocolate (or cacao butter / or other chocolate)
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut cream
  • Silicon moulds & gift bags
