Chocolate Letters

I am a massive fan of Choccywoccydoodah and am always amazed at what magic they do with chocolate. Unfortunately, I am far from a chocolatier but for little mans birthday, I wanted to do something special. So I decided to do his name in chocolate.

After researching what to do online, inspiration struck while I was in Tesco when I picked up these


First thing I did was melt the white chocolate over a ban marie. Once melted I added some popping candy to the mix along with milk chocolate drops and then poured it onto some baking parchment  on a tray.


While waiting for it to set, I carved out JACK and left it for 5 minutes in the fridge. After these few minutes I went over JACK again and waited for the chocolate to fully set.



Here is the finished result


I thought the process would be really tricky but it was actually quite simple. I'd definitely do it again,although next time I will leave out the chocolate drops as they chocolate came out more marbled then I would have liked.

Before it goes on the cake, I plan on adding some chocolate icing to the letters.

Jack's birthday isn't until Thursday so I'll be sure to share the rest of his birthday celebrations
