    Select a chocolate bar which your Valentine likes the most. If you have no idea about your lover’s choice of chocolate, you can simply buy any good quality, smooth milk-chocolate for your purpose. Besides being delicious, milk-chocolates are easier to melt and mould, as they do not form lumps like other caramel chocolates or the ones with dry nuts.

    You need to melt down the chocolate to be put into the moulds. You can break down the chocolate bars into a microwave-safe oven and place it side the microwave for melting. You only need to turn on the oven for 15 seconds and be very careful not to overcook the chocolate, as it can get burnt.

    Take out the melted chocolate from the oven and pour it into the heart-shaped silicon mould. These moulds are easily available in the market but if you don’t find any, you can simply pour the melted chocolate into a flat tray and cut out a hear shape with a knife.
