Tasty sweeheart bark ideal for Valentine's Day.
  • 1 8 oz. bag conversation sweethearts
  • 1 8oz. bag white and dark chocolate (the higher quality, the better melting potential)
  • ziploc bag
  • mallet
  • heart shaped mold
  1. Empty conversation sweethearts in a ziploc bag. Break hearts into small pieces with a mallet.
  2. Place broken bits into heart-shaped molds.
  3. Melt chocolate either on a double boiler on the stove top or in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave. Place in microwave for 1½ minutes, then stir and continue to melt at 30 second intervals until entire bowl is melted.
  4. Pour melted chocolate into molds and fill to top. Sprinkle extra heart bits on top and place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours or until perfectly hard.
I experimented with different brands of white chocolate chips, candy melts from Michael's craft store, and then with white chocolate callets. I discovered the white chocolate callets melted the easiest over the stove in a double boiler.

I made a make shift double boiler by placing a pot ⅓ filled with water over top the stove. When the water reached almost boiling I placed a bowl over top the pot and stirred the candy pieces until they melted through. I used white and milk chocolate for the different hearts but, found the milk chocolate lent a more dramatic appearance against the colors of the conversation hearts.

Make sure when you crush the candy hearts, you place a towel underneath the ziploc bag is it will definitely break and create a mess.
