Gluten-free Valentine Candy to Make at Home

-

For many people the highlight of Valentine’s Day is eating chocolate. Making chocolate Valentine’s Day candy at home is both fun, easy and can be gluten-free. This is a great activity for both adults and children and a wonderful gift giving idea.

Wilton Products makes an entire line of meltable chocolate wafers that are gluten-free. The wafers come in an assortment of colors. Wilton also carries chocolate candy molds that are perfect for Valentine’s Day. Check your local craft store or party store for candy molds and meltable chocolate wafers. Hobby Lobby carries a brand of gluten-free meltable wafers call Make N’ Mold.

Making Chocolate Candy with Candy Melts Couldn’t Be Easier

Step 1
Place melted candy in your mold using a spoon, melting bottle or disposable decorating bag. When mold is filled, lightly tap it several times on a counter to eliminate air bubbles in the candy.

Step 2
Place the filled mold in the refrigerator or freezer until candy has set. When the underside of the candy mold appears to be frosted, you’re ready to unmold the candy. If there are any dark areas on the underside of the mold, it means some of the coating is still soft. In this case, chill the mold for a few more minutes, until the entire mold has a frosted appearance.

Step 3
Unmold. Turn over the mold about an inch above a flat surface covered with parchment or waxed paper. Gently flex or tap the mold and out come the candies!
