I’ve had several readers write to me asking for Chloe’s candy recipes. Now what kind of a professional chocolatier would she be if she divulged all her secrets and recipes?? She was persuaded to give you all one, though, and I’ve listed it below.
You’re welcome, from Chloe!
Caramel Oreo Cookie
giving you the easy recipe for this one – you don’t have to be a
chocolatier to make it. Just know in my shop I make and temper my own
caramel and chocolate pieces. Chloe San Valentino
1 bag of Oreo cookies – the REAL kind, not the generic, cheaper kind.
1 bag of baking chocolate ( Baker’s semi-sweet chocolate pieces is the best brand commercially.)
1 package Brach’s caramel pieces
1 bag of white baking chocolate ( again Bakers is the best)
1. line a huge baking sheet with parchment paper because nothing sticks to that.
Melt the white chocolate in a double burner under a very low heat until
it is smooth, stirring constantly. The color will be slightly dull.
Pour it into a decorating bottle or into a pastry bag and add a #1 or # 2
tip to the bag. You want a small round opening to drizzle the chocolate
3. At the same time you are melting the white, melt the
baking chocolate in a double burner under a very low heat until the
chocolate is completely melted and smoothy. Dip each individual Oreo
into the chocolate letting the excess drip back into the sauce pot.
Place on parchment paper and let cool at least 15 minutes.
Once cooled, drizzle the Oreos with white chocolate forming criss-cross,
thin lines around the entire cookie. Place on the parchment paper again
let cool at least 15 minutes. ( you may have to heat the white
chocolate up a little before decorating – just put the bottle into the
bottom of the double boiler to let it stay hot, or don’t put the white
chocolate into the bottle or pastry bag until you are ready to drizzle.
Either way works.
New release 3 WISHES (A Candy Hearts Romance)
Day is chocolatier Chloe San Valentino’s favorite day of the year. Not
only is it the busiest day in her candy shop, Caramelle de Chloe, but
it’s also her birthday. Chloe’s got a birthday wish list for the perfect
man she pulls out every year: he’d fall in love with her in a
heartbeat, he’d be someone who cares about people, and he’d have one
blue eye and one green eye, just like her. So far, Chloe’s fantasy man
hasn’t materialized, despite the matchmaking efforts of her big,
close-knit Italian family. But this year for her 30th birthday, she just
might get her three wishes.
