Chocolate!!

26 Jun

I have more birthdays up and coming in the summer and I have been having an inspiration bypass.

Having called my friend to pick her brains she came up with this fab idea.

We’ve all seen those beautiful, expensive slabs  in the those hotels for chocolate. Well I thought I would make my own.

I took myself off to my local supermarket. It was 3 for 2 on those little bags of nuts, seeds and dried fruit. So  picked a variety and then hit the chocolate aisle. I decided to go for own brand finest chocolate in white & vanilla, plain and milk.

Later in the kitchen I had a hodge podge of mismatched saucepans and bowls on  the stove, each one gently melting a different chocolate. Basically I spent the morning like a pig in…….well, chocolate.

Meanwhile I lined some baking trays with parchment paper.

Once my chocolate had melted I poured a little onto the parchment paper and then sprinkled on my topping of choice. For some reason the white chocolate refused to melt properly so I also used this as a topping and to add texture. I might add it tastes delicious!!

They are now in the fridge cooling and hardening and with no children around I got to lick all the bowls and all the spoons.

So these are the flavours that I produced today.-

Dark chocolate with cranberries and macadamia nuts

Milk & white chocolate with a granola topping.

The possibilities for flavours are endless.

For packaging I will either wrap them in cellophane with a bow, or pop into a pretty tin.
