Delicious Chocolate Filled Toadstools?!

4 years ago

I absolutely LOVE to cook and try out new recipes. When I came across this recipe for chocolate filled toadstools, I HAD to try it! Not only did this yummy snack turn out super cute, but it was also very delicious! :)

"For this project, you`ll make four different mushroom components: white chocolate stems, chocolate ganache truffle filling, red mushroom cap shell, and additional melted white chocolate for mushroom dots and "glue."

Chocolate Truffle Ganache:
Place 3 oz. of semisweet chocolate in a medium bowl.
In a small saucepan, heat 1/4 cup heavy cream, just until it starts to bubble.
Pour the cream over the chocolate; make sure all the chocolate is covered by the cream (push some pieces down if you need to).
Cover the bowl and let it sit there, undisturbed, for 10 minutes, until the chocolate has melted.
Whisk the mixture until the chocolate is dark and shiny.
White Chocolate Stems:

Melt 9 oz . of white chocolate as instructed and pour into mushroom stem molds. Set remaining chocolate aside for "glue" and mushroom dots. Freeze molds for 5-10 minutes. Gently tap candy tray to carefully release stems from mold.

Mushroom Caps:

Melt 1/2 cup red Merckens candy wafers as you did the white chocolate.
Fill 1/4 of each mushroom cap mold with the red melted candy coating. Using a brush, push the coating up the sides of the molds, completely coating the inner cavities.
Place mold in freezer for five minutes.
Remove molds from freezer and carefully spoon truffle mixture into the candy shells. Then pour a layer of red candy coating over the truffle mixture to cover the bottoms of the mushroom caps.
Return to the freezer for another 15 minutes.

To release mushroom caps from the molds, gently tap the tray. Using melted white chocolate as glue, affix stems to the bases of the mushroom caps. To create the mushrooms` white dots, pipe or brush on melted white chocolate and allow to set in the freezer, about 1 minute."
