The perfect Valentine's Day treat to make with your kids!
8 ounces Semi-Sweet Chocolate
8 ounces White Chocolate
1 tsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp almond extract
Valentine's Day Candies and cookies of your choice
Line a 9 x 13 pan with nonstick foil. You could alternatively use parchment paper or wax paper, but I tend to prefer the nonstick foil.
Make sure your toppings are ready to go - we used crushed sandwich cookies, conversation hearts, pink and red candies, and Valentine's Day sprinkles.
In a medium bowl, break up the semi-sweet dark chocolate and add 1/2 tsp of coconut oil. Melt in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring each time. Be careful to stir often and not let it scorch!
Once melted, add 1/4 tsp of the almond extract and stir well. Spread the chocolate evenly in the prepared pan.
Place the pan in the fridge for about 12-15 minutes or the freezer for about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, break up and melt the white chocolate and 1/2 tsp coconut oil in the same way you did the semi-sweet. Stir in 1/4 tsp almond extract once melted and stir well.
Get the pan out of the fridge or freezer. Working quickly so as not to melt the semi-sweet chocolate, spread the white chocolate over the semi-sweet in an even layer. You may get some swirling, but it'll still taste good!
Before the chocolate hardens, add your toppings! This is where you get to have fun - spread them out over the chocolate and make it festive!
