Fillings

Method

  1. Chop chocolate into small pieces if not using chips. Heat half of chocolate in top of double boiler until it melts and reaches a temperature of 110 to 120 degrees F. Remove saucepan with chocolate from heat and stir in remaining chocolate.
  2. Stir chocolate frequently until it reaches a temperature of 86 to 91 degrees F for semisweet chocolate, 84 to 88 degrees F for milk and white chocolate.
  3. Using a small pastry brush, paint inside of candy cups with melted chocolate. Place cups in freezer for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove cups from freezer. Using a spoon, fill cups three-fourths full with raspberry preserves, marshmallow fluff topped with a toasted hazelnut and other fillings.
  5. Heat chocolate until it again reaches 88 to 90 degrees F. Using a spoon, drop chocolate on top of filling. Using the back of the spoon, smooth out chocolate and seal to the edge of the shell.
  6. Return candies to freezer for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from freezer and store in airtight container.
