Giant Chocolate Kiss

Give someone a giant kiss — literally — with this white chocolate crusted, gold tipped chocolate kiss.

Ingredients

  • 1 large banana
  • 1/3 cup + 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 dark chocolate bar, broken into pieces
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons powdered gelatin (soaked in 2 tablespoons of water)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon Cointreau liquor
  • 2 large, round cookies or biscuits
  • Melted white chocolate, for coating
  • Gold foil

Steps

  1. Make a cone shape with parchment paper, and staple it so that it stays in place. Use duct tape to seal the tip of the cone.
  2. Put the cone in a deep cup, pointed end down, so that it doesn't tip over.
  3. Slice and mash the banana, then transfer to a medium bowl. Stir milk into the mashed banana, then microwave for 2 minutes.
  4. To the bowl, add dark chocolate, gelatin and sugar. Stir until chocolate has melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in heavy cream and Cointreau.
  5. Pour mixture into parchment paper cone. Top with a round cookie and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours, until solid.
  6. Once hard, remove from mold onto a serving plate. Pour melted white chocolate overtop and sprinkle with gold foil pieces.
