the joys of making it yourself
Now that getting a chocolate bar involves a significant and wasteful car ride I have become more resourceful. I was raiding the cupboards for something sweet last week when I came across the milk chocolate chips and a jar of unsalted almonds. Growing tired of eating plain chocolate chips, I melted the chocolate and spread half of it onto waxed paper, sprinkled it with the almonds, drizzled it with the remaining chocolate, and, because I couldn't wait a second longer than absolutely necessary, placed it in the freezer to set.
Another favourite is dipping strawberries in said chocolate which, as you will see in the photo below, Poppy got her hands on fresh out of the bath.
Not rocket science, I know, but you have to admit it is a little more refined than scarfing down Chipits straight from the bag.
Next up, I will share a basic cracker recipe.
P.S. I am rather in love with my new header also made myself.
go gently + be wonderful
