Chocolate lover

As I had mentioned in my mother’s day chocolate post that chocolate doesn’t need an occasion, it’s the chocolate makes the occasion very special. Believed that this is a perfect occasion to share my yet another chocolate recipe with you all.


Yummy dark chocolate

Outcome of this recipe is so mouthwatering; one can eat with the eyes 😉


walnut chocolate

Mother’s day chocolate recipe was a super hit in my house and I had decided that I would make this again for another event. My skylander boy had a play date with his friends at our place and had plans to make it for the kids and parents. In the middle of preparing the chocolates again, my creative brain screamed again to experiment something new and ended up making different chocolates. Not a bad attempt though, parents and kids enjoyed it thoroughly. I had prepared both the types of chocolates – mother’s day recipe and my another new cherry recipe.
