How to make chocolate cups
To make your chocolate cups, you need about 300 gr of chocolate (dark, milk or white, all are fine), water to taste, a muffin pan in stainless steel or silicone, popsicles.
The first step is to fill the muffin pan with water and dip an ice lolly stick into each shape. Then put the dashboard in the freezer for about 4 hours, at least until the water is completely frozen.
When more than 3 hours have passed, you can proceed to melt the chocolate. The safest and best known method is the bain marie method. Here's how to do it: fill a saucepan up to three quarters of water. Meanwhile, crumble the chocolate in another smaller bowl. Place this over the saucepan, making sure that it does not touch the edges or the bottom of the latter. Turn on the stove and keep the flame medium-low. At some point the chocolate will begin to melt: stir without stopping so that no lumps form or stick. In no time, you will have your melted chocolate.
Remove the muffin pan from the freezer, wait a minute, so that the ice comes off the walls and you can remove the water popsicles.
Dip one ice lolly at a time into the melted chocolate, holding it by the toothpick and taking care that the chocolate does not submerge the surface. Then put each cup of chocolate to rest on a serving plate and wait a few minutes, so that the chocolate cools, adhering to the ice.
Once the chocolate is well thickened, gently remove the block of ice. And here are your chocolate cups!
