Suggestions needed - adding dried herbs/spices to melted chocolate

susan_e_webb | May 6, 201610:55 AM    

Hello Hounds,

I'd like to make small molded chocolates using melted Lindt dark chocolate and incorporating dried herbs/spices (e.g. cardamom). Any suggestions for the correct proportions - how many tsp. herb/spice to how many grams of chocolate, also considering that I might grind these up before adding them? Creative combo ideas are welcome too! (I'm thinking of ground cardamom stirred into the chocolate, with a few dried rose petals on top of each chocolate.) Thanks!
