Ahh, it’s almost Christmas. And that puts me in the baking mood. Today I chose to make Wild Orange flavored chocolate stars.
It was very simple to do, all you need is a bag of chocolate chips-milk, dark, white, it doesn’t matter!, candy molds, and the essential oil (safe for ingestion) of your choosing. I chose doTERRA’s Wild Orange, because I think it tastes fantastic with chocolate.
Because my molds were so small, I only used about half the bag of chocolate chips. I melted them in the microwave in a glass measuring cup, stirring after each thirty second interval, until they were completely melted.
From here, I gave the chocolate a good stir, and added three drops of the Wild Orange oil. You could use more or less, depending on your desire for orange flavor.
After you add the oil, stir the chocolate again. Now, if you’d like you could add a dash of sea salt to add a little extra oomph.
Here comes the messy part: pouring the chocolate into the molds. This part was a little tricky for me, but I made out okay with a spoon, and scraped the top of the molds afterward with a knife, to smooth the chocolate down.
Stick the mold in the freezer for about thirty minutes, then pop the molds out. Enjoy!
