|This KitKat container made the perfect football chocolate mould!|
Pour the liquid tempered chocolate into the mould, spread the chocolate all around and up the sides, then flip the mold over upside down over the waxed paper, letting all the excess drip out. Flip it back over, clean the top edges off by scraping with an offset spatula, and then flip it back over onto a clean piece of waxed paper to rest for 3 or 4 minutes.
|This chocolate is made with CacaoBarry 38% organic chocolate |
- so to me, that's a guilt-free treat for my family during superbowl!
Place the football in the center of a dessert platter and surround it in total game day-style treats, like the Maple-Bacon Sponge Toffee drizzled in milk chocolate (shown on the platter in the picture above). Simply make this maple sponge toffee recipe and replace the maple syrup with a bacon-flavoured maple syrup (President's Choice just launched one recently in the Canadian market). If you can't find a bacon-flavoured maple syrup, finely chop cooked bacon and sprinkle it into the sponge toffee just before you pour it into your pan, then drizzle with melted chocolate.
Alternately, surround your chocolate football with candied bacon or chocolate-bacon bark. Find the recipes here.
