Sorry for the crappy Iphone pictures, I haven't really been near a computer this week! wahh!

this year, for my christmas gifts I made chocolates. This was only the second time I've worked with chocolate. My tempering skills need some work, but they were fun to make!

Image

I made three types: the snowflakes are mint meltaways (higher percentage of cocoa butter), the striped ones are chocolate orange (inspired by the chocolate oranges I used to eat at christmas time!), and the ones with the almond slice on top are a gianduja truffle. toasted almonds and hazelnuts in dark chocolate.

Also, I got a twitter account if anyone wants to follow meee:

Everything is so pretty, the chocolates are so intense! They must have been a lot of work.

Start to finish, about three and a half hours :) Truffles are not hard, really... just a labor of love.

Wow! That must have been very labor intensive. The chocolates look so professional and wonderful!.. and the cinnamon rolls.. I would eat one right now even though I'm in sugar hangover hell.

Yay, I'm following you!

Everything looks so amazing as usual. I would really like to try making my own chocolates too! They look awesome. I am also curious about how you do the snowflakes, I've seen it done before but was never sure how.

The snowflakes are done with a transfer sheet. It's acetate paper with cocoa butter printed on it. You pour tempered chocolate on to it and peel it off when it has set!

:D

Oh wow! I meant to make cinnies for Christmas this year but lost track of time. Maybe for New Years? ; ) And your chocolates are so very gorgeous.
