I had quite a bit of fun recently when I attended a chocolate making lesson at one of Divine’s pop up shops in Covent Garden. In conjunction with Fairtrade, Divine has forged links with farmers in Ghana to harvest and produce chocolate for them. And what a great job they are doing.
Introducing new flavours all the time. The new kids on the block are a 70% Dark Chocolate with Mango and Coconut, and 38% Milk Chocolate with Whole Almonds. Both are delicious but I think that the Milk Chocolate with Almonds just has the edge for me. Here are some pictures of a group of us getting very messy while making chocolate truffles!
Just gently melt your favourite chocolate and add a small amount of double cream, mix together and chill for a few hours in a fridge and hey presto you can get making. We used a selection of crushed nuts, sprinkles and cocoa powder but you can use whatever takes your fancy. Great fun for kids and grown ups alike!
