So I have a massive family. Like huge, my mum is the youngest of 10 and they all have kids and lots of those cousins have had kids now so our family get togethers are always big! Every year we organise a Christmas party and I try to make my presents because I’m too poor to buy everyone something…
It’s usually food because that’s easy to do in bulk, one year it was biscuits, another it was chilli jam. This year it’s chocolates!
I’ve got myself a chocolate box silicone mould from Lakeland:
I’ve never done any proper chocolate making (just plenty of chocolate eating!) I decided to get the Thermospatula as well so I can attempt to temper the chocolate and hopefully make them look really good:
I’m kinda excited about using this just because I love a good gadget!
I’ve already started making some boxes using this tutorial and some Christmas scrapbook paper that I bought from eBay:
(Sorry about the fuzzy photo, working with an iPad is hard!)
This was my second attempt after I failed to follow the instructions the first time around…
I’m hoping to make the chocolates this week and post a full tutorial next weekend. Keep an eye out!
