Ice chocolate, to the left with almonds and to the right with walnuts.
Ice chocolate, ischoklad, is a typical Swedish Christmas candy which is made really easily. I must admit that I have no clue where the name comes from, maybe because you have to store these chocolates in the fridge or else they’ll melt.
Ice chocolate (ischoklad)
(makes about 45)
200 gr chocolate
80 gr copha (Swe: kokosfett, Eng: Palmin)
45 tiny aluminium cups
optional: your favourite nuts
optional: orange liquor
Break the chocolate into pieces and put it in a deep heatproof bowl together with the copha. Melt them at a rather low temperature in the microwave. Stir the mixture and pour it into the aluminium cups.
I usually fill up 25 of the cups, then I add some drops of orange liquor to the rest of the mixture and fill the remaining cups. Add nuts. Store in the fridge, in airtight containers with a sheet of greaseproof paper between each layer.
