Upscale Molded Chocolate with John Neil

While this recipe for molded chocolate is so simple and easy, it does produce some amazingly beautiful and delicious results. John prefers to use polycarbonate chocolate molds similar to these to make his shells. For the decorations on the molded chocolates, John recommends using colored cocoa butter. You can determine the flavor based on the type of nut butter you choose. Another great thing about this recipe is you can make as much or as little as you want. Just be sure to keep a one-to-one ratio of nut butter and chocolate.
