Chocolate surprise.

  1. Place the chocolate into the microwave for 30 seconds, remove stir and place back in until its all melted. Set to one side. In a jug place the aquafaba and whisk until firm peeks are forming much like you would for egg whites. Once you have firm peeks, fold in the melted chocolate, maple syrup and cinnamon. Try not to stir too much as you will loose the air. Once combined spoon into the middle of the jellys and place a small section of the cored jelly back on top like a lid. Place into the fridge for 1-2 hours.
