Looking for organic cat-shaped chocolates? Here are some sweet treats for cat lovers and cats this Valentine’s Day. Nothing says I love you like charming chocolate cats made from sustainable and organic chocolate. And this year, your kitty doesn’t have to miss out on the fun. Read on to learn about a safe chocolate alternative for cats.
If you’re feeling lucky in love, then chocolate fortune cats are the purrfect gift for the cat lover in your life, or purrhaps for you too. This creative confection is handcrafted in small batches by the award-winning Ms. Cocoa chocolate company. Available in vegan dark chocolate or organic creamy white chocolate, this fortune cat is right up the alley for eco-conscious cat lovers.
Unfortunately, if you don’t live in the U.K., you’re out of luck as Ms. Cocoa currently only ships to customers in the United Kingdom. But don’t consider yourself unlucky because you can make your own organic chocolate cats with this adorable cat chocolate and candy mold.
Making your own cat-shaped chocolates is surprisingly easy and fun. You actually don’t make the chocolate itself from scratch. Inside start with organic chocolate baking wafers or a baking chocolate of your choice. Then you simply melt it (you’ll need to “temper” the chocolate), and pour it into the cat-shaped mold.
Aside from a chocolate cat mold, you won’t need special equipment with a little improvising. In place of a double boiler, you can rest a steel mixing bowl over a pot of water–just be sure to use oven mitts when you handle the mixing bowl because steel transfers heat and the bowl will get quite hot.
And while a candy thermometer makes the job easier, you can get by with a standard meat thermometer if you monitor the chocolate closely while it’s melting. You can even temper chocolate without a thermometer.
And Here’s a Sweet Treat for Kitty…
Your fave feline might feel left out of the fuss if you don’t find a purrfect gift for her too. While cats should never be given real chocolate because it’s poisonous for pets, there is a wonderful chocolate alternative for cats. This organic catnip “chocolate” bar is a handcrafted felt toy. While it looks like a chocolate bar, it’s actually a soft felt cat toy filled with 100% organic catnip.
While your cat is encouraged to lick and bite this chocolate creation, keep it away from little humans who might just believe it’s real chocolate! You’ll find this chocolate bar for cats at the Ticketybootique shop on Etsy.
Now that you’ve got the inside scoop on organic cat-shaped chocolates, and “chocolate” bars for cats, you can delight the cats and cat lovers in your life this Valentine’s Day. And while you’re savoring a rich melt-in-your-mouth velvety chocolate bite, your cat can enjoy her own delectable “chocolate” catnip treat.
