happy v-day!

Eric and I made heart shaped chocolates for valentine's day. After tempering organic/fair trade chocolate chips, we poured the melted chocolate into molds and mixed in different things like pine nuts & cayenne, crystallized ginger, dried cherries soaked in amaretto, peanut butter, and wasabi. Tempering chocolate is pretty fussy - definitely not my favorite activity. The final results make it all worthwhile though. <3
