Almond Butter Truffles
Ghirardelli chocolate wafers
Wilton Valentine heart candies
Wilton silicone heart mold
Place the heart silicone mold on a cookie sheet.
Dry the inside of the silicone mold.
Drop some of the Wilton red & pink heart candy in the bottom of the mold.
Melt the chocolate wafers.
Add a tablespoon of melted chocolate on top of the heart candies.
Spoon a layer of almond butter on top of the melted chocolate.
Top off the mold with a layer of melted chocolate.
Tap the filled mold while on the cookie sheet to make sure that it is level and any holes that may be in the mold can be filled.
Refrigerate until the chocolate has set.
Allow the hard candy in the mold to set, then remove the truffle from the mold.
How easy is that?
