These treats are just too cool. I don't drink much liquor (hides the rum bottle) but I could get behind some attempt to get drunk on chocolate.....eheheheh.
I melted about 6oz of milk chocolate chips in the microwave and spooned some straight into one of my shot glass molds. For the other three glasses I crushed 1 cup of unsalted dry roasted peanuts in the food processor and mixed them with the remains of the chocolate. I spooned that into the other three molds. I didn't fill the molds all the way up to the brim. The base is fairly thick and I wanted a slightly thinner layer there. Shake and tap the mold on the counter to get all the bubbles out. Chill until glasses are solid before popping them out.
I was torn over what to fill these with, but I had about 1/3 of a batch of chocolate lemon frosting/filling leftover from another project and I blended it with 8 oz of reduced fat cream cheese. (I included the frosting/filling recipe below.) I piped that into the molds and then drizzled a bit of melted milk chocolate of the top. There are so many possible filling mixtures.....caramel....brownie bites....ect ect....the experimentation will be mighty!
Chocolate Lemon Filling/Frosting
14 oz fat free sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tbls lemon peel
4 cups powdered sugar
12 oz chocolate chips
Mix sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, and lemon peel together. Beat in powdered sugar. Melt chocolate chips (I used 1/2 dark chocolate, 1/4 milk chocolate, and 1/4 semi sweet chocolate) in microwave stirring frequently until smooth. Add to milk mixture and stir into chocolate is mixed in well. It will thicken over time.
A photo of the shot glass mold....man this mold is cool...
I found this silicone shot glass mold on Amazon. It says it's for ice cubes, but the cool thing about silicone is that it can easily be flipped to candy/chocolate use. It was tough to pull the glasses out of the mold without melting the chocolate just a bit where I was holding onto it. I might need to add a little freezer time next time I try it to see if that helps.
