Homemade Chocolate Spoons

I make these chocolate spoons as Christmas presents but they make wonderful gifts for your Valentine too! Who could resist these little spoons resting in that chocolate loveliness?!

Wrapped up in pretty packaging with all the promise of a delectable cup of hot chocolate to come, they are sure to win your beloved’s heart and they couldn’t be simpler to make. Read More…

The keyring will float if it is accidentally dropped in water – as long as the keys aren’t too heavy – perfect for clumsy boat people like me! Read More…
