We had a go at making our own chocolate from scratch a couple of weeks ago and it was really delicious! I bulk bought some of the ingredients online (cocoa butter and cocoa powder) and the other bits I already had in the house.
It really was quite simple to do, I found a basic recipe online and followed the step by step instructions. The girls helped me too (mainly because they wanted to lick the spoons/bowls/moulds/work surfaces etc) but they thought it was fun and loved having something they made for an afternoon treat.
I will definitely be adding these to my Christmas Hamper repertoire as I’ve had some great feedback from the taste testers. I’m also going to try adding different flavours and experiment a little.
Have you ever made chocolate? What is your favourite flavour to try?
