Recipe - Valentines Day Rose Petal And Raspberry Chocolate Medallions

Chocolate medallions are the easiest treats to make and always look so tempting and indulgent. You may recognise these from previous posts such as 'Creative Christmas Gifts' and 'My Christmas Themed Afternoon Tea' where I served them as party nibbles and presents. They are incredibly quick to make, so if you have unexpected guests arriving these are perfect nibbles to whip up! They can also be tailored to any person with different types of chocolate and a variety of toppings.

I have written the recipe below but don't feel you have to stick to it - you can get as creative as you want with these little gems :) The size, shape, type of chocolate and toppings are all upto you, and there are so many options!

I recommend using the best quality chocolate you can get your hands on. For these Valentine's day medallions I chose dark chocolate. I used three toppings, all from Waitrose which provides a fabulous selection of decorative ingredients. The raspberry flakes and rose petals tasted delicious with the dark chocolate and are a romantic treat to nibble on with your beau on Valentines day! For some more adventurous alternatives, why not sprinkle on chilli flakes, popping candy or pink himalayan sea salt! 
Valentines Day Rose Petal And Raspberry Chocolate Medallions
To make roughly 24 medallions, you will need:
300g of good quality dark chocolate
Waitrose Cook's Homebaking freeze dried raspberries
Waitrose Cooks' Homebaking bronze crunch
Waitrose rose petals

Line a large baking trays with baking parchment.
Break up the chocolate into pieces and melt in a double boiler, being careful not to let any water or condensation drip into the bowl.
Spoon heaped teaspoons of the chocolate onto the baking sheet, leaving enough space for the chocolate to spread.
Using the back of the spoon or a butter knife, spread the chocolate into small circles. Don't make them to thin or they will snap when cooled.
Sprinkle on the rose petals, freeze dried raspberry pieces and bronze crunch.
Leave to cool and harden in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes

Keep the medallions refrigerated in an air-tight container for up to 2-3 days and keep cool prior to serving
Once cooled, why not package them in tissue paper and a pretty box tied with red ribbon to give to your Valentine. I definitely recommend enjoying these alongside champagne!

Other topping ideas - edible glitter, lustre dust, caramel chunks, crushed confectionary such as smarties, honeycomb, butterscotch chunks, miniature marshmallows, pistachios, dried fruits, crystallised violets or crushed nuts.
Wishing you all a romantic and delicious Valentines!!
