In 2006, he published a cookbook called A Taste of Heston which includes a recipe for chocolate-covered sheep’s heads.

How Chocolate is Made
Chocolate is made from the beans of the cacao tree. The beans are roasted and ground, and then made into a paste. The paste is mixed with milk, sugar, and flavorings, and then heated until it becomes liquid chocolate. The chocolate is then cooled and molded into bars or other shapes.
To make chocolate covered sheep, the sheep is first shaved so that the chocolate will adhere better. Then, the sheep is dipped into a vat of melted chocolate. After the chocolate has cooled and hardened, the sheep is rolled in sugar or other ingredients to give it a sweeter flavor.
The Different Types of Chocolate
There are different types of chocolate, and each one is used for different purposes. The most common type of chocolate is milk chocolate, which is made with milk, sugar, and cocoa butter. Milk chocolate is usually used in candy bars and chocolate chips.
dark chocolate is made with cocoa butter, sugar, and either dark food-grade logs or natural antioxidants. Dark chocolate has a bittersweet taste and is often used in baking or cooking.
white chocolate is made with cocoa butter, milk, and sugar. White chocolate does not contain any cocoa solids, which gives it its light color. White chocolate is often used in candy bars and frosting.
Congratulations! You are now a sheep covered in chocolate!
The History of Chocolate
Did you know that the history of chocolate goes all the way back to the Aztecs? In fact, the word “chocolate” comes from the Aztec word “xocolatl,” which means “bitter water.”
The Aztecs and other Mesoamerican people made a drink called xocolatl by grinding up roasted cacao beans and mixing them with water, spices, and honey. This bitter drink was believed to have many medicinal properties.
It wasn’t until the 16th century that chocolate started to become popular in Europe. At first, it was only consumed by the wealthy because it was so expensive. But by the 18th century, chocolate had become more affordable and was enjoyed by people of all social classes.
Today, chocolate is one of the most popular sweets in the world. And while most of us enjoy eating chocolate, not many of us know much about its history. So next time you’re enjoying a delicious piece of chocolate, take a moment to think about its long and fascinating history.
How to Make a Chocolate Sheep
To make a chocolate sheep, you will need:
-1 milk chocolate bar
-1 white candy coating
-1 package of mini marshmallows
-1 black icing gel
-1/4 cup of heavy cream
First, break the chocolate bar into pieces and place them in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until it is completely melted. Then, add the heavy cream to the melted chocolate and stir until combined.
Next, dip each marshmallow into the chocolate mixture and coat it completely. Once all of the marshmallows are coated, put them in the refrigerator to set for about 30 minutes.
While the marshmallows are chilling, melt the white candy coating in a microwave safe bowl using the same method as you did for the chocolate. Once melted, add the black icing gel and stir until combined.
Once the marshmallows are set, dip them one at a time into the black candy coating mixture and place them on a sheet of wax paper to dry. Allow them to dry for at least 30 minutes before handling or serving.
Tips for Making Chocolate Sheep
Chocolate sheep are a fun and easy way to show your appreciation for someone who has achieved something great. They are also a delicious way to celebrate a special occasion or just show your sense of humor. Here are some tips for making chocolate sheep that will put a smile on any face.

2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Be careful not to overheat it, as this can make the chocolate seize up and become grainy.

4. Using a pastry brush or your fingers, carefully apply the chocolate to the sheep mold. Make sure to cover all of the fur so there are no bald spots!
5. Allow the chocolate to set before removing the sheep from the mold. If you’re in a hurry, you can put them in the fridge or freezer to speed up the process.
