DIY Heart shaped Jazzles

To me, the kind of gifts I'd love to receive on Valentine's Day are those that have a heart-felt meaning, something that sparks up a memory or has been hand made. It doesn't have to cost the earth and certainly doesn't have to be a grand gesture, after all, if you love someone, you love them for the whole year, not just for that one day. With this in mind, I've come up with a little sweet treat to make for your Valentine this year. It's super simple and quick but has that 'made with love' look that'll surely earn you a kiss or two!

One of my Husband's favourite childhood sweets are white chocolate Jazzles (sometimes known as snowies) and I've decided to make him a batch.

For this DIY you will need:

White Chocolate 200g bar
Milk Chocolate 200g bar
100's and 1000's Sprinkles
Greaseproof paper
Presentation bags or gift box
Doilies (optional)

Start by melting the chocolate slowly in a bowl over a saucepan with lightly steaming water.

Once the chocolate has melted, remove the bowl from the saucepan and leave to cool a little for a minute or two
Then simply grab a teaspoon of melted chocolate and draw a heart shape onto your greaseproof paper

While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle on your 100's and 1000's
I did about 3 hearts at a time then added the sprinkles

Once you've done all your hearts leave them to cool and harden, pop them in the fridge to speed up the process

Once hardened, you're ready to package them up.
I picked up some doilies and presentation bags from Poundland and simply stacked and displayed my hearts in these.


It's as simple as that!

If you're not keen on heart shapes then you could opt for flowers or perhaps bow-ties...or even just in their traditional retro shaped circle selves. 

I'd advise making a few extra than you plan on giving....just in happen to drop a few.... (in your mouth).
