You can buy chocolate melts in bigger grocery stores, department stores, and of course Wal-Mart. Most people shy away from buying them because they do not want to mess with the chocolate molds. Personally let me tell you that you do not need to use molds.
I say grab a few bags and play with them because they are perfect for so many occasions. This is something that is fun and easy to do, and I am sure that once you do it you will see exactly what I speak of.
Chocolate covered confections make the perfect gifts for anyone on your list. Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day, birthdays or for other special occasions, they are perfect. Almost everyone likes chocolate; and chocolate is one of the most versatile products around.
For the cookie lover!
These chocolate melts can be melted down and put on so many things it is unreal. If you are racking your brain for a special friend who adores chocolate why not, grab a fancy box, a few bags of chocolate melts and a package of their favorite cookies.
First melt down the chocolate melts in a double boiler, and then drop the cookies into the melted chocolate. Use a fork to remove the chocolate covered cookies from the chocolate and place them on a cookie sheet or a piece of tin foil. When they are cooled and chocolate is set go ahead and put them into the fancy box.
Use can use any plain cookie here, it does not matter the flavor or if it is a sandwich cookie or just one single cookie, they are all great in chocolate.
You can melt some chocolate melts, and drop in some nuts. Use a fork to cover the nuts and spoon them out of the double boiler. Drop the chocolate nuts on to the tin foil and let them cool.
You can take almost any type of fruit and dunk it in melted chocolate. Some fruits that work well here are cherries, chunks of bananas, oranges, and of course strawberries.
You can use pretzels of any type, saltines, or any plain crackers as a treat. Just put them into the melted chocolate making sure they are totally coated and use a fork to bring them out and lay them on a piece of tin foil.
For a sweet treat go ahead and crush some cookies into bite size pieces, and put them into a melted chocolate. Once they are seriously covered, go ahead, and put them on the tin foil to cool. Now take so chopped nuts, also cover them in the melted chocolate, and layer on top of the cookie pieces.
These sweet treats can all be given as gifts to special friends, just to say thanks or whatever. It does not matter the occasion, chocolate is always one of the most appreciated gifts to get.
