If I am ever given the chance to meet you, this is what I would bring with me.
I am one of those people that honestly do no expect anything from anyone, but for some reason I do expect a lot from myself. Is not that I am a perfectionist, believe me, I have many flaws and I am totally ok with them. I am not even questioning who I am, I am fine with that too. But I feel that I am always challenging myself to give more, be on top of things, be there for others, make others feel special and that includes bringing a little something for you when we meet. Is not like it’s a chore. Not at all. I love it! An please know that by sharing this part of my personality I am not trying to brag about how awesome I am, no. I truly just wanted to let you know that if we ever meet I wont be stressing out, I just figured out what to bring you and it feels awesome because this delicious morsel is pure heaven and that is what you deserve for being a loyal reader. Thank you! You are awesome!
Why did I pick this treat for you? Well, it was easy to figure it out because these dulce de leche chocolate cups are all you have asked me for. Yes, you. Or most of you. I receive many comments and compliments from readers when I share easy recipes, and I am listening. It is because I listen that I have put together this recipe and plan to share many more like it in the near future.
Do you want to learn how to make it? It all starts with good quality chocolate.
I like to used 70% dark chocolate and I think it is just perfect but you can use any type that you like.
Once melted, simply pour the chocolate on a plastic mini cup mold (I bought mine at Michael’s for 99 cents) and drop a tiny dollop of dulce de leche in the center, followed by a top layer of chocolate. Then let them cool and get hard on the fridge.
Silky dulce de leche it is covered by a shell of dark chocolate and topped with sea salt. Just what I would want you to remember me by after we meet.
- Plain dark chocolate
- Dulce de Leche
- Sea salt
- Melt chocolate over a double boiler.
- Spoon melted chocolate into molds just about half.
- Drop a dollop of dulce de leche in the center.
- Add some more melted chocolate, enough to cover the dulce de leche center.
- Put on the fridge for about five minutes or until chocolate has cooled down but is still soft.
- Sprinkle each candy with a touch of sea salt.
- Freeze for 30 minutes to an hour, or until chocolate is completely firm.
