Homemade Chocolates (Choc Chick Kit)

Homemade Chocolates

One day last week I was taking my frustrations out on Twitter - just the usual things - the kids were misbehaving, it was raining, I was STILL feeling ill, when suddenly I received a tweet from @gochocchick who told me to check my emails.

I logged on and found a lovely email from Galia, the owner of Choc Chick, a website which sells raw chocolate making kits and ingredients, telling me she would like to brighten my day by sending me their Raw Chocolate Starter Kit to try. How nice of her!

It arrived 2 days later and on Saturday morning, Lowen and I set about making some handmade chocolates. The process couldn't be simpler (the kit comes with instructions) and took less than 10 minutes. I decided to quarter fill 12 silicone cupcake moulds to make some round after dinner chocolates. They take 2 hours to set but are well worth the wait (although I've since been told you can put them in the freezer for 15 minutes) - the finished chocolates are smooth, dark and rich - oh and healthy too (raw chocolate is considered a superfood).

The kits would make an ideal birthday present, or even a Valentines present for your chocolate loving partner.


  1. Awe, isn't that lovely! Looks like great produce, very exciting ;0)

  2. What fun! Hope you are finally feeling better.

  3. *Jealous*

    Looks like tons of fun :)

  4. what's the difference between raw choc and other choc?

  5. Hi Kate. Have a look here

  6. Superfoods, you say? Does that mean I can eat my body weight in raw chocolate and not feel bad about it? hee hee looks delicious!

  7. This is a great gift idea...especially with Valentine's day coming up!

  8. I've just received a kit too and am looking forward to trying it out. Last time I tried making raw chocolates it all separated out.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
