Give your sweetheart the gift of allergen free smooches for Valentine’s Day!
  • ½ c. enjoy Life non-dairy chocolate chips
  • 12 almonds
  • mini funnels *see note
  • silver foil candy wrappers
  • “Happy Valentine’s Day” printed strips
  1. Melt the chocolate chips in a double broiler or in a large metal bowl over top a saucepan filled with water to touch the bottom of the bowl. Alternatively, place the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave at 30 second increments. Stirring at each stop. This should take about 90 seconds total.
  2. Fill the funnel half way with melted chocolate, making sure the chocolate fills a little into the narrowest part. Place almond in middle, making sure that the chocolate is covering it entirely.
  3. Standing upright, freeze for 10 minutes. Remove smooches from funnel by gently squeezing the chocolate mold out. This should easily slip out. If not, freeze for another minute.
  4. After you cut out Happy Valentine’s Day paper strips (I printed mine out from the computer at size 8 Typewriter font), fold ¼? inch of the paper under the smooch, making it stand upright. Proceed to wrap with silver candy foil (you will need to cut the wrap to fit each individual kiss).
Hi, Leanne here! I made these smooches a couple of weekends before I headed to India and didn’t end up purchasing the funnels Cara recommended. Because my funnels were bigger, I had to plug the end so the chocolate wouldn’t spill out. To do this, I ripped off a small piece of plastic wrap, rolled it into a ball and placed it inside the funnel, then took the end of a meat thermometer (whatever pointy thing you have on hand) and pushed it into the neck of the funnel. Don’t push it too hard or you’ll have a very pointy tip!
