DIY Marble Chocolate Hearts - Valentine's Day Gift

This past Christmas I received two marble cheese boards as gifts and I was so excited! I love anything marble which is why I decided to create these marble chocolate hearts for Valentine's day.

The typical method to make marble chocolate is to mix white and dark chocolate together, in this case I used white chocolate and swirled in some black food colouring to create the marble veins. I think it looks a lot more realistic.

Here are the things you'll need to create these marble chocolate hearts for your Valentine: white melting chocolate, black food colouring, hearts mold and toothpicks.

I melted the chocolate in the microwave (30 second intervals, mixing in between).

Then I dipped a toothpick into the black food colouring and swirled it into the white chocolate (be careful not to over-mix).

I filled up the mold and gently tapped it to release any bubbles. 
Then I put it in the freezer to set (about 15 min).

I popped the chocolate hearts out of the mold and they were perfect! 

These marble chocolate hearts would make a perfect Valentine's Day gift!
