It's been a while since my little princess and I did our artsy stuff together. I've been busy with work and she with school (o-ha) and a lot of everything else in between that we've missed our usual bonding sessions in the form of cooking or craft-making.
I've been wanting to try making my own chocolate lollipops instead of ordering or buying. From various reading materials I came across with, the process is fairly simple - melt and mold. In fact, walking to the mall to buy the ingredients was the hardest part, hahaha.
I bought all my ingredients from Cooks Exchange; it's located at Megamall so the prices are a bit higher compared to getting your supplies from Chocolate Lovers.
Eone and I melted using an improvised double broiler the white chocolate block I bought from Cooks Exchange, mixed it with red food coloring powder (to achieve the pink color) and poured over our molds. After letting it cool for about 5 minutes, we placed the molds in the freezer for another 5 minutes to set the chocolates.

The kids loved the outcome, especially Eone who helped me create the chocolate hearts. She must have realized how easy it was to make it because she's now insisting that I do more and we can put up a store to sell it. How enterprising!
Yesterday, she told me she promised her classmates that "Mommy will make chocolate lollipops for all of us!".
OMG, nai-pledge na ako.
