2 Intermediate Chocolate Candy Recipes [Jul. 16th, 2008|05:07 pm]
American Eagle Fan Club

A candy recipe is 'intermediate' if it has more ingredients and steps, and requires more patience and perseverance. In the first recipe, constant stirring is required at one point, and waiting until the ingredients are cool at other points. In the second recipe, there are four separate steps, with waiting in between. Making candy using these recipes may not be appropriate for sharing with small children for these reasons.

Peppermint-Chocolate Pebbles

1 pound sweet grated chocolate
1/2 ounce melted cocoa-butter
1/2 teaspoonful peppermint extract

5 ounces. sweet chocolate
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
1 cup thick cream
2 tablespoonfuls corn syrup
1 teaspoonful vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoonful almond extract

Melt the grated chocolate over hot water to a smooth paste. Remove it from the hot water, beat for a few minutes, adding gradually the peppermint extract and the melted cocoa-butter. Stir occasionally until quite cold; then rub through a wire grate onto white paper underneath.

Put the sweet chocolate and the unsweetened chocolate into a saucepan, and carefully melt the mixture to a smooth paste; then add the cream, syrup, and remaining extracts, and stir over the heat until well blended. Remove from the stove and beat constantly until the mixture becomes cold and a lighter color. Mold it into small round centers, then roll them in the sieved chocolate. Let set, then store in a cool, dry place.
