Things you need
- 397gr chopped white chocolate
- Small soup ladle
- Plastic cup for teapot mould
- Waxed paper
Break the white chocolate into small pieces and put into a microwaveable measuring cup. Microwave on high for about 20 to 25 second intervals, checking to make sure the chocolate has not overheated and that the consistency is pourable. Remove when ready and set aside.
Fill the plastic cup with melted white chocolate using a small soup ladle. Place into the refrigerator for about 2 minutes to thicken a bit. When ready, take it out of the refrigerator, flip it over on top of waxed paper and allow the chocolate to drip out completely.
Turn over the cup to see that the sides of the cup are evenly and thinly coated with chocolate. Use a paper towel to clean chocolate off the top edges of the cup. Place into the refrigerator to continue to harden.
Take the cup out of the refrigerator and remove any hardened chocolate stuck on the edges of the cup using your fingers. Take out the chocolate mould from the cup by wiggling the cup back and forth (over the chocolate) with your fingers until the chocolate slips out.
Use a pastry bag filled with softened white chocolate to create a handle shape on a piece of waxed paper. Allow to set in the refrigerator until it is firm.
Remove the handle from refrigerator and place on the table along with the hardened cup. Dip your finger into some melted chocolate and place it on the side of the cup and on the tip of the handle. Put a little pressure on them so they stick together. Place in the refrigerator until it is set.
Tips and warnings
- Make sure that the sides of the plastic cup are lightly but evenly coated with the melted chocolate.
- Be careful when removing the melted chocolate from the microwave. It will be very hot.
