Chocolate Making

Last weekend my sister and I had a go at making chocolate! It's raw/vegan/fairtrade and all other good stuff and I'm totally pretending the antioxidants make it healthy as I've eaten almost our whole batch already!

We went to a nearby cookshop to get some molds (they're ice cube trays really!) and made Guylian inspired seashells and letters that came out almost perfectly! We tried adding different flavours like lemon zest and vanilla but they didn't really work so well - I can't taste them at all. Oh well - still yummy!

Have you ever tried making chocolate before? It was pretty easy although to be fair we bought the ingredients in a kit so the hard work was done for us!

This looks delicious! And I'm convinced all the antioxidants actually make chocolate a necessary daily food item :)

Oh, wonderful! My cousin is training to be a patisserie chef and chocolatier; I can imagine the amazing smell. It looks so fun indeed, I'll definitely try one! x

I've tried it before and I must say your chocolate looks much better than mine did. Mine went really weird because our old kitchen was so cold.

Now send me some chocolate ;)

Aw, this brings back so many fond memories! When I was younger, I used to have "chocolate painting" birthday parties, where you'd buy those colourful chocolate wafers, melt them, and then everyone would "paint" in the molds to make chocolates. Yours look much more delectable than ours ever did though. ;)
