In need of a quick DIY Valentine’s gift? Why not try our sweet and sour heart shaped lollipops!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Sour strawberry straws
- White chocolate
- Hundreds and thousands decorations
- Lollipop sticks
- Baking tray
- Baking parchment
Our first step is to create the heart shape out of the strawberry straw, we’ll do this by pinching it in half and bending the ends around towards each other.
Now push your lollipop sticks through the bottom of the heart shapes and leave them to one side.
Place your white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl (I used a small ramakin) and heat for ten second bursts, stirring inbetween until it is all melted. To cool the chocolate down, keep some aside and add this in now and stir until it is all smooth and combined.
When your chocolate has cooled down and become slightly thicker, hold the heart shape in place with one hand and fill the middle in with chocolate with the other. If your chocolate is really thick, it’ll take no time at all to set!
Now just sprinkle on hundreds and thousands for decoration and place them in the fridge to set fully.
And there you have it, a really quick and easy Valentine’s gift! I hope you enjoy making these as well as eating them! If you have a go don’t forget to share your makes with us on Instagram @aboxofbuttons or on Twitter @aBoxofButtons! See you next time!
