CHOCOLATE RECIPES



Chocolate Cherry Surprise Christmas Tree


Requirements:
1 large hollow Christmas tree mould
500g white chocolate
Bulldog clips Cherry flavouring oil
Mini Astros
Marie biscuits
1 gold board for packaging

Method:
Cut your mould so that the half trees are separate. Cut out each tree shape with a 1cm border around the edge. Cut out the bottom of each tree and then clip both sides of the tree together with bulldog clips to get a full Christmas tree. Stand the tree upside down in a mug or jar - with the cut out bottom of the tree facing up (facing you). Melt your white chocolate very, very gently either in a double boiler or in the microwave. Remember that white chocolate is much more sensitive to heat than milk chocolate and so it burns more easily. The hotter it gets the thicker it gets, so if you see it getting thick remove it from the heat immediately and stir it rapidly to cool it down. Add four drops of cherry flavouring oil to your chocolate and mix through well. Now pour your chocolate into the tree and fill it to the top. Leave the chocolate to cool. When the chocolate has cooled enough you will see that it has set around the edges of the tree. When that border around the edges is about 3mm thick you can empty the rest of the chocolate back into the pot. This will leave you with hollow chocolate Christmas tree. Now place the chocolate tree into the freezer for about three - five minutes to set. Once set, you can fill the tree with Smarties. Then gently remove the bulldog clips and the tree from the mould. Pour some melted chocolate around the bottom (or open side of the tree) and place a Marie biscuit on top to seal the mini Astros inside the tree. Once this is set you can turn the tree right side up and it will stand nicely on its biscuit base. You can cover the Marie biscuit with melted white chocolate to look like snow.
