Halloween is right around the corner and that means lots of sweets! Everyone loves a good, classic piece of chocolate candy but we have something that is a little more sophisticated. These Goat Cheese Chocolate candies are perfect for your grown-up Halloween party! They are easy to make and delicious — the kids may even like them too! For a fun Halloween twist, feel free to decorate the candies with festive sprinkles!
6 oz bittersweet chocolate
6 oz goat cheese
2 tbsp confectioners sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4-6oz semi-sweet chocolate chips or coating chocolate
In a double boiler or a glass bowl set over simmering water, melt the bittersweet chocolate. Stir until all chocolate is melted then set aside to cool slightly. In a mixing bowl whisk the goat chese, confectioners sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Then slowly mix in the melted bittersweet chocolate. Mix until well combined. Put mixture into a 12×9 pan. Place mixture in the fridge for 1 hour or until firm. Before removing mixture from fridge, line cookie sheets with wax paper. Then melt the chocolate chips or coating chocolate in the microwave. When melting chocolate in the microwave, set the time for 1 minute but every 15 – 20secs remove the chocolate and stir to prevent burning. Once the chocolate is fully melted remove from microwave. This should only take 30-45 seconds. Remove the mixture from the fridge and cut small rectangles or squares. Place each square in the melted chocolate to coat and then place on the parchment paper. Let the candies stand for 20min to set. Store the candies in the fridge in an airtight container between pieces of wax paper. Before serving, let the candies come to room temperature for optimal texture and flavor!
