I love working with chocolate. It”s a pretty hard project to mess up because no matter what goes wrong almost every mistake is salvageable (beyond burning it to a crisp) and you”re always able to find some way to get it in your belly.
I”m sharing two of my favourite homemade chocolates on Simple Bites today, Bark and Truffles. They”re so easy to make that there shouldn”t be any salvaging needed. ;)
“Homemade chocolates are a perfect gift to make because not only do they store well in the freezer (if someone is already overloaded with goodies) but they are extremely easy to make and do not require a candy thermometer.
You can get the kids involved too, giving them a fun project on those cold days when you’re all stuck inside. I’m sure they’d be proud to give a batch to their grandma knowing that they had a hand in making them (Grandma will like that too).”
