I can't believe how good the raspberry chocolates are that I made tonight. I mean...they're really, really, really good. Like crazy good. I think Sarah will be a fan. I also made some blood orange/cinnamon chocolates, with Grand Marnier, using milk chocolate in the filling, in a dark chocolate mold. Blood oranges are apparently one of her favorite fruits, so I figured that was a no brainer. They need some tweaking--these turned out a little too boozy, but I think they'll be good when they sit for a day or two. The third kind is a creme de menthe chocolate that I think is an improvement over the creme de menthe chocolates I made for Christmas. When I made them for the holidays, I used only dark chocolate for the filling. This time I used 3 oz. milk chocolate and 5 oz. dark. It makes them still very intense and dark, but the milk chocolate mellows them out so they seem more "creme."
I'll finish sealing them up tomorrow, and they'll be ready to give to Sarah on Thursday, when I'll see her next.
