How to Make Fancy Rose Chocolates

So after the success of creating home made hazelnut seashells after buying a chocolate seashell mold, I decided to make another trip to Bulk Barn to pick up a few more molds.  
This one looked pretty simple and struck me as a perfect mold to create chocolates I can give away to my fiends on Valentines day.
So I melted some white chocolate and did my best to paint the chocolate into half of the roses (harder than it sounds!) and then the other half I just filled with a small spoonful of white chocolate. Then I put the tray into the freezer for 10 minutes.
*Always remember to whack the tray on the table a few times to get rid of any air bubbles.
When the white chocolate had hardened, I poured some melted dark chocolate on top. Then I gave the tray a few whacks and popped it into the freezer for about 20 minutes to make sure everything was perfectly hard.
Well, all in all I think these chocolates turned out pretty well. They certainly didn't take as long as the chocolate seashells I made last week, and they also had a lot less steps. I'm not too sure which I prefer, the white chocolate roses, or the half white/half dark chocolates.
Anyways, these trays have been so much fun to play with and have really helped to take my mind off of all the homework I have to do. If you have a chance to buy some chocolate molds, I'd say go for it because they're cheap ($3.00) and fairly easy compared to other DIY (Do It Yourself) projects.
