My little chocolate factory

by Karolina, 17th December 2013

I'm a bit behind in Christmas preparations this year. We were away for pretty much all November, so December and Christmas in general, just crept up on me!

But I didn't give up :) I prepared some quick edible gifts for my friends and family. 
This time I played Willy Wonka. My kitchen was turned into small chocolate factory, thanks to the chocolate molds I bought a couple of weeks ago. 

If you don't have those, don't worry, you still can do it using small silicon ice-molds. If you don't have any, you can make just a chocolate bark which you can then artistically break :)

It can't be simpler really. Melt chocolate, pour it into mold,  add your favorite toppings: smarties, nuts, dried fruits...whatever you wish.

I went quite crazy...dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate. Pistachios, dries cherries, apricots, smarties,  peppermints, you name it!

What's your favorite home-made chocolate taste?

It's time....

by Karolina, 15th December 2013

It's time... to come back :)

It's been a looong, looong time since I was here the last time. 
And being completely honest I missed it a bit. 
If you've missed me - good news, I'm back. If you haven't missed me...well, I'm back anyway :)

It's nearly a year ago that I posted the last time. And it's about time to put up my sleeves, dust the cobwebs of my blog and start over again. I hope you'll join me on this ride...

And on this note I'd like to thank one particular person that kicked by backside and nearly forced me to start blogging again. Yes, you know very well who you are :)

And for a good start couple of photos to get you in Christmas mood...
