I love the classic, romantic look of candles melting in the center of a dinner table. It really adds the perfect touch of charm to make any meal just a little bit more special.
The candles below, however, would be an even more delightful addition to your next date night. I honestly thought they were real candles when I scrolled by them, but they’re actually totally edible! Ann Reardon, the baker behind YouTube channel How To Cook That, shows how to mold white chocolate into the traditional shape for an easy and elegant dessert.
Essentially, Reardon creates chocolate cups and fills each one with a yummy, gooey white chocolate mousse before adding ordinary birthday candles to the center. She then places them on a candelabra, but they would look just as fancy on an ordinary plate!
Take a look below to see the simple steps she uses for the outer chocolate mold before hitting the video for Reardon’s delicious mousse recipe.
Then, you’ll need to gather your ingredients for the mousse: sugar and water mixed in a saucepan, four egg yolks, and about 2 ½ cups of cream.
Hit play on the clip below to see all the steps in action, and follow along as she whips up the scrumptious filling before carefully pouring it into the cups. Reardon also has some handy tips for trimming the wax on your candle in order to make it easier to light.
And don’t forget to SHARE the clever idea with your friends!
