Here are the ones I made last year! My son loves chocolate orange – but trying to find dairy-free, soy-free chocolate orange hearts was never gonna happen, let alone with honeycomb on top. He LOVES honeycomb – but again trying to find honeycomb in dairy-free, soya-free chocolate was futile. So I came up with this fab solution for home-made chocolate hearts.
I made honeycomb – its surprisingly fun and easy! I doctored his safe 74% Ecuadorian dark chocolate, with a spot of orange extract and BOOM – home-made chocolate orange hearts with honeycomb crumbs on top. They were a hit, he was a very happy chappy and felt very loved – which was what it’s all about! You can make yours chocolate mint flavour or add nuts to the mix if your child can eat them.
