Chocolate and nuts candies

Today, I decided to present to you some little delicacies I prepared for my colleague Polly’s birthday. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! She loves chocolate very much, so I decided to experiment with these tempting tiny little temptation. And I did not make a mistake! It melts in the mouth and you want more and more.

The candies are prepared with small adjustments according to the recipe for Shuhaidi Slovak Sweets of Billa Culinarium, for which I thank them very much!

Chop the chocolate and add it to the pan. Stir until a smooth mixture is obtained.
Do not forget that the products should melt on low heat, don't allow the mixture to boil and stick to the bottom. To make sure this will not happen, you can melt them in a water bath. I used a small pan with a non-stick coating because it's easier and quicker for me.

From the lady fingers cookies mixture, form small balls that place them in the cupcakes forms.

Start making the candies. Take about 1 tbsp. from the still warm chocolate mixture and pour onto the spheres. Try to cover them all.
If you use smaller cupcakes forms, the entire ball is totally covered and the top surface becomes even. I was not able to find small ones, so I used standard size cupcakes forms. That's why my candies became like little chocolate domes. Both are good, so do not worry if you do not use the small cupcakes paper forms.
In any case, the taste will not suffer :).
