Do you believe in the Fairy Blog (God) Mother? I do, and I have to say as Fairy God Mothers go, mine is really rather great!
All you have to do is make a wish in the comments, and hope that the powers that be grant it. My Fairy Blog Mother sent me a wonderful haul of chocolate, but who knows what they might send you?
A little birdie tells me that their secret identity is Appliances Online, so it might well be worth wishing for something off their site? It doesn’t have to be chocolate, Pig Pig’s Corner got an ActiFry Low Fat Electric Fryer and Mediocre Mum got a fab Slow Cooker!
I had vouchers for the lovely Chocri website, were you can customize your own bars of chocolate, to an amazing detail. I went for two bars of lovely dark chocolate with cappuccino drops and ground coffee. One of these is meant for my brother who is so desperately missing his Lindt Coffee Intense bar that I thought that this might be a nice replacement. The other version of the coffee bar was for me to quality assure it on his behalf ;-)
The chocolate is fab, really rich and dark with a strong 70% base. The coffee beans add a good natural flavour, and a bit of a crunch too. The cappuccino drops are just a bit of fun, but add a coffee-cream taste and do make the bar look rather pretty. I loved my bar and hope my brother will do too.
I went a bit wild with my third bar, I went for a base of both milk and white chocolate, topped with strawberries, blueberries, nougat, and chocolate sizzling rocks! I think I may have invented the perfect Summer chocolate! The sizzling rocks are popping candy, which is one of those sweets that always make me smile. The sweet fruit taste mixed well with the creamy chocolate and the nougat added a nice nutty aftertaste. The bar was quite busy, but I still loved it. The thing about Chocri is, if you do make a crazy combination you only have yourself to blame! Although it is very tempting to keep adding, because they just have so much to choose from!
Big, big thanks to my Fairy God Mother!!
