Lavender Vanilla Bean White Chocolate

Hey! What is more sexy than chocolate?! Trick question because there is no answer! Add some classic french flavors and hello curvaceous, sweet and sultry candy 😉

I love to use a little culinary lavender in sweets. The key word being, a little. If you overuse this ingredient, your delicious treats can quickly turn to soap. It is a love hate relationship, and you have to make sure your measurements are exact.

That being said, this is a great little taste of France! The vanilla bean gives a delicate look to the white chocolate candy. You might only have a few, but they look great, and taste even better so gifting them is always an option.

I haven’t figured out my own White Chocolate recipe yet, that is on its way. For this candy making batch I just melted down some solid white chocolate, crushed some culinary lavender with ground vanilla bean and set the molds. It only makes me want to be a Chocolatier!

So, you will need…

  • 1/2 lb. Solid White Chocolate
  • 1/8 tsp. Crushed Culinary Lavender
  • 1/8 tsp. Ground Vanilla Bean

Here was my process…

  1. In a double Boiler melt White Chocolate, stirring frequently to allow a smooth consistency.
  2. Once white chocolate is smooth add Lavender and Vanilla Bean and stir. Allow flavors to meld before placing in molds, but be sure to not burn.
  3. I used a measuring cup with slight lip to pour chocolate into the molds. 
  4. Allow to cool until the candy looks glossy and is solid to the touch. About 2 hours. You can always pop the mold in the refrigerator to speed up the process,l or save them from the summer heat!
  5. Pop out of molds and enjoy!

I don’t care what anyone says, making chocolate is hard, and a daunting task. I intend to master the craft, so look out world, my chocolate is on the rise!

Happy Candy Making!
