Sweet remedy for Chocoholics





Rainy fall days with rain, that never stops and some chill in the air - what do they spell? Yes - CHOCOLATE! 

I started experimenting with making my own Truffles last winter, when my older son had a design-project going around chocolate - and it turned out to be a lot of fun. Now friends keep asking me for more and i decides to start making them again. They are very dark, very energizing and - they just seem to give body and soul a little extra energy.

The good news: a bit of chocolate every day is actually good for your health - if it is real, around 75% cocoa. It is good for the heart, for the brain, has a lot of antioxidants - read more about it here.
And than ....follow the recipe here (i used the bittersweet one) and put a smile on everyones face.

Have a sweet weekend everyone!

  1. My beautiful Martina! HELLO! I just saw your new post pop up and here I am. I am actually just about to go get my lunch and that is a bowl of yogurt with COCOA powder in it with CHERRIES! I believe in chocolate, I DO!

    I have missed you. Are you enjoying some much needed art time? I bet work is stressful as usual, as is mine but I am grateful to have a job.

    It is always lovely to come to see you. Much love, Anita
