Yesterday it was chilly and rainy here... the perfect day to turn my kitchen into my little chocolate factory - something I've missed for a while. In fact, I haven't made choccies in my own kitchie since before heading to Australia mid February.
I made a variety of goodies...
Fruit and Nut Clusters - as simple or exciting as desired depending on which dried fruits and nuts you want to use. I use a basic dark chocolate with goji berries, cashews, almonds, raisins, and dried jakfruit in mine. I made a second tray of these alone!
Mint Moonie Pies. Oh yeah! I love these!! It's been a while since I've had a batch of these around.
Fruit and Nut Cups - With freeze dried strawberries, almonds, mulberries, raisins, and goji berries. In little silicone cups.
Turtle Balls - A take on my caramel pecan turtles. Chewy, crunchy, sweet, and downright decadent!
Centers prepped and ready for dipping into chocolate.
Dipped, with a mini pecan on top :)
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Mini Cheesecake. Because... why not?! I've never tried a chocolate covered cheesecake before, have you? This little gem has a blackberry inside...
... and is garnished with a freeze dried strawberry that I brought all the way back from a strawberry farm in Australia.
Peppermint Patty Cups - dark chocolate with refreshing mint cream.
So that's a taste of what's been going on in my kitchie. Have you made any yummy chocolate treats lately?!
