Yep, easy.
I keep it simple because I don’t like messing with the white chocolate flavour. I love white chocolate.

If you like it, why not make it at home? All you really need is milk, and good quality white chocolate.

Firstly, heat your milk over the stove, but don’t boil it. You just want it hot enough to melt the chocolate.
Next, add your chocolate, and stir while it melts. Again, don’t let it boil. Taste it, and add more chocolate if you wish. Pour into a mug and enjoy!

I sprinkled mine with a bit of chocolate powder, but its just as nice plain. You could also experiment with flavour and add cinnamon, nutmeg, peppermint essence, or anything else you think would taste awesome, while it is heating.

Enjoy xx

So, It’s Easter…the time of year to indulge in some chocolate. OK, LOTS of chocolate. And this yummy Chocolate peppermint Fudge is super yummy! I adapted the recipe from Donna Hay’s Chocolate Fudge recipe, because I couldn’t quite find what I was after…or a recipe that used the ingredients I had in my pantry.

Ingredients

400g Dark Chocolate, broken into pieces

395g tin Condensed Milk

150g butter, chopped (mine was a bit to soft to chop)

Peppermint essence to taste

Method

Place butter, chocolate, and condensed milk into a saucepan, and melt over low-medium heat stirring continuously. When almost totally melted and combined, add a splash of peppermint essence. Continue to stir until mixture is smooth, and starting to thicken. Taste and add more peppermint if desired. Mix again. Pour into a greased and lined slice tin, smooth, and place in refrigerator to set. Cut into small pieces and serve.

Conveniently-, E is for EASTER!!! This post was really a no brainer for me, cos, well, you know I love chocolate……and Easter means chocolate! LOTS f chocolate!!

Ok, so many people will say “but what about the real meaning of Easter?”. Well, quite frankly, there is a not a religious bone in my body, so personally, Easter will always be a time to spend with friends and family, being ultra consumeristic, and eating lots of chocolate. It will always be the Easter Hat Parades at school and daycare. It will always be the anticipation of the Easter Bunny’s visit to our house, and the excitement in the eyes of our kids when they see that the furry guy has been. It will always be drinks and BBQs and a long weekend.  It  will always be EGGS!!!

That is what Easter really means to ME.

These little Rainbow Cookies are so gorgeous, and I plan to make the for my Daughter’s Rainbow High Tea birthday party next month. Too cute!!

The last thing for today, is vegetable and herb gardens. I LOVE vegetable gardens! I cannot wait for the day that we have our own place, and I can get a really big veggie patch happening. Not only is it nice to eat something you have grown yourself, but I found that the few times we have successfully grown vegetables in pots, the kids have been much more inclined to actually eat their vegetables. It is something about the novelty of growing, looking after, picking, then eating their own foods that gets them interested! Here are some great little veggie gardens.
