Can I use milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate?
Yes, though dark chocolate has a stronger flavor profile and contains less sugar, which complements the other ingredients better. Feel free to experiment with different types of chocolate for personal preference.
Can I substitute the dark chocolate with white chocolate?
No, white chocolate does not contain cocoa solids, which are necessary for the aphrodisiac properties of this recipe. Dark chocolate contains phenylethylamine, a natural chemical that can produce feelings of excitement and attraction. White chocolate does not have the same effect.
How long do these chocolates last?
These homemade aphrodisiac chocolates can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. Let them come to room temperature before serving.
You can also freeze them for up to two months. Thaw frozen chocolates in the refrigerator or at room temperature before serving.
Are these chocolates suitable for vegans?
No, as this recipe contains butter and honey, which are not considered vegan ingredients.
However, you can easily modify the recipe to make it vegan by substituting dairy butter with vegan butter and using maple syrup instead of honey.
