Coming soon - Handmade Chocolates on March 23rd

Our next meeting day is approaching quickly, and the workshop's a goody... we'll be making chocolates, yum yum! We will be providing all the chocolate, and it would be wonderful if everyone coming along could bring a supply of an ingredient to pop on the share table, e.g. walnuts, pistachio nuts, hazelnuts, pecan nuts, chopped nuts (any nuts really!), cherries and other fruits, sprinkles and edible decorations, violets, roses etc...

We'll also be providing various moulds, but if you have some of your own, please do bring them along to help create your own personalised chocolates. Remember, all sorts of things can be used as chocolate moulds - rubber and silicone ice cube trays and cake cases, and even paper cake cases for that matter. If you fancy buying some of your own moulds for the job, places like Poundland and Poundstretcher are always a good cheap bet, and also the supermarkets (I've just seen a range of Easter things in Asda that included Easter Egg moulds).

We will also be making truffles on the day, so if you like 'em boozy you may want to bring some of your favourite tipples.

Could you please also bring along a suitable container to transport your artisan chocolates home in. A pinny would be a good idea too - things might get messy!

We're really looking forward to seeing you all there. xx

P.s. as always, it would be great if you could confirm if you'll be coming, either on facebook or by posting a comment here. Thank you!
