Once you have the chocolate and the mold, you one step away from creating these magical treats. Add some of your favourite Valentine’s sprinkles into your shape before placing the chocolate into the mold! I used pink, white, and blush sprinkles, but feel free to use whatever you like, anything will work and everyone will love these tasty white chocolate hearts!
