Pina Colada White Chocolates

If you like white chocolate and coconut you absolutely need to make these little treats. They are easy to make, so much so I made these at 11pm one night...As you do! When I recently saw a candy mould in Hobbycraft for a £1 I couldn't not buy it, even if I was a bit unsure what to do with it. I couldn't make out whether if was for actually candy like us Brits call sweets? Or, candy as the Americans call chocolate? I decided on the later. I might be wrong here so please correct me if so!

Well whatever it is, it resulted in some very yummy chocolates. I have mentioned before how I am not the biggest coconut fan but it is safe to say I am defiantly warming to it, these chocolates helped of course. Perfect for a gift, if they make it out your kitchen!

Traditional Pina Coladas have a cherry on top, so you could add the pineapple from this recipe into the chocolate mix and top the chocolates with a glace cherry instead. I decided against this purely because they were a gift and I know the person I was giving them too despises cherries. Even I'm not that mean.

Candy Mould from HobbyCraft

200g White Chocolate
100g Desiccated Coconut
1tsp Rum (or rum flavouring to skip the alcohol!)

Chopped Crystallised Pineapple

♥ Get yourself a candy mould and chop the pineapple up and place individually in the bottom of each shape.

♥ Place the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate until it is melted, stirring every 45 seconds to prevent it from burning.

♥ Pour the melted chocolate into a piping bag and pipe into the candy mould shapes.

♥ Pop the mould into the fridge, preferably overnight to set.

♥ Serve...with a glass of alcohol of course!

All packed up and ready for somebody
