Spoons and Bars

I haven't made any chocolates for a little while - I've been too busy trying to keep the house tidy in the hope that someone will come and want to buy it. Mateo suggested I make chocolates and bribe people with them - when I get really desperate, I will try it!

However, could resist the temptation to make no longer and today made some dark chocolate 'spoons' which can be stirred into a hot drink such as milk or coffee - delicious.

 I also made some bars of chocolate with a mixture of raisins, mango, pistachios, almonds and cashews. Tastes wonderful and has a rustic, rough sort of appearance which I really like. I saw some bars of chocolate at a Farm Shop today that looked as if they were made out of plastic - I think that's why I wanted these to look 'real'.

I'll be making some more next week - there has to be some good reason for the change in the weather! It was far too warm last week, no way would my chocolate set when it was 22 degrees in the conservatory.
This chilly weather is just perfect for a quick set - but no rain please, that's nearly as bad as sun. Dry and cool will do fine.

Thanks for looking - do post me a comment!
