Valentine's day is coming up so you want to make chocolates for your special someone or just for yourself.

For me, chocolate is my go-to snack so I invest a lot of money buying it, usually gravitating towards the cheapest ones because otherwise I break the bank. So why not make my own?

Unfortunately as a college student, I don't have the luxury of having a kitchen or the time to temper chocolate, or the patience. Also, what if I want to make them at night?

This is a quick and easy recipe for making your own chocolate. It only takes a few ingredients and a silicone mold to make yummy chocolates that are expensive-looking. Why not make your own and have control over the sweetness and bitterness?
