Chocolate frosting recipe instruction:

Chocolate praline recipe instruction:
Pour water and sugar in the saucepan in low heat to boil and add fine chopped Turkish Delights in it to melt (see homemade lokum recipe). Cook it for about 10-15 minutes. If lokums are thicker, they may not melt completely but it doesn’t matter.
Add butter in the mixture to melt as well, remove it from heat and add combined nuts and seeds with cracker crumbs in it. Mix it good and let it cool (stir it occasionally).
Sprinkle your working board with some confectioner’s sugar and roll the mixture to be about 1 centimeter thick. Make heart shapes with molds. If you get too hard mixture to roll, add more butter in it, and if you get too sticky mixture, add more cracker crumbs.
Dip hearts in the cooled chocolate frosting and let them strain.
Cool gourmet candies in the fridge for few hours before you serve them. Enjoy!
