Happy Valentine's Day!
I hope you have at least received a card, even if it's from the cat! I haven't received anything this morning. But SquarePear Tony did buy me a nice new pair of boots on Sunday, not very romantic but practical all the same.
I am a bit more romantic and as you might have guessed I made my Valentine's gifts for him. The first gift I made are some little heart chocolates. I didn't actually 'make' the chocolate I just melted it and put it into little heart shaped moulds:
I bought a really cheap chocolate fondue set and thought it would be a bit rubbish, but we love it and it even came with some of the moulds that we needed for this.
The mould supplied only made 8 chocolates so luckily I had another handy so I could make all the chocolates and refrigerate them in one batch.
We then decanted them into a little jar and dressed up a bit with a brown paper lid cover and jute twine. I also cut out a little heart gift tag. A really quick and inexpensive gift, that looks thoughtful but is very simple to make. If you don't have a fondue set you could easily melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water.
I will tell you about gift no.2 tomorrow as it is still wrapped up at the moment.
