Chocolate Christmas Forest!
I have been making one of my little specialities - Chocolate Christmas Trees. One for each of my students plus a few possibly for my own children. I think they are so cute! (The trees are rather sweet too.)
How we should wish to be one of your very lucky students right now! What a very kind, original and certainly delicious idea to make these very pretty little trees.
Annie, they are gorgeous! Please may I be one of your students? :-)ReplyDelete
Me too...me too!ReplyDelete
They look delicious Annie x
They're lovely :DReplyDelete
They do look wonderful....not sure how you have the time.ReplyDelete
What a great idea! They are so sweet : ) It really does look like a chocolate forest when they're all together. Too bad you have to give them to your students...ReplyDelete
I am about to embark upon another gingerbread frenzy; I had quite a serious one last year at about this time and I can feel it coming on again. I'll let you know how it turns out. At the moment I am feverishly painting patterns on tissue paper to wrap presents in as I can't seem to find any wrapping paper here; very strange. Still, it's all creativity so can't complain.
yum yum - they look amazing. What a fantastic idea Annie, well done xReplyDelete
Thank you! I didn't have time to arrange them into an elegant display though I really wish I had. Today was the last class for my Tuesday students as next Tuesday is a local holiday here in Alcala, so I won't see them again before the new year. They were very pleased and interested in their little chocolate treats - most of them wanted to take them home to show their parents/siblings so I gave them little bags to put them in and showed them how to tie ribbon on so they can be put on the tree.ReplyDelete
I must have made thousands of these over the years so am quite quick at turning them out and it's very satisfying. Packaging them up is the time-consuming part!
