Fear not! It wasn’t a disaster!
I did however use a little bit too much honey, which was maybe a little bit too long on the stove…So I ended up with chewy caramel-like chocolates. Not quite what I had in mind but not bad.
I have learned from my mistake which opened up some honey caramel making possibilities BUT “Note to Self”: do not use honey as a sweetener for chocolates anymore. Stick with date syrup or apple sugar ;).

…Or as a gift, it’s just brilliant!
Fast & easy to prepare…Plus it contains only 4 wholesome ingredients (can’t beat that)!
You can take some to work, when camping, when travelling or going on a weekend somewhere…Whenever you fancy.
I invite you to head over to her blog for the full recipe.
Yesterday I had prepared these for the lucky attendees to my Homemade Chocolate Making Class to taste. Rich, chocolaty, the right amount of sweetness (I don’t like super sweet chocolates or treats for that matter), melting in your mouth…And made with fresh ginger & brandied fruits, they were a hit! Not to mention that they contain no dairy & that I only use natural sweeteners (honey in that case)…There will be more ;).
