I hope you've had a great Valentines day either you celebrated or not! We had a fun day that started off with me making Valentines day candy! It was the first time I did and I really enjoyed it since the recipe was really easy and truly rewarding!
I found the recipe for a white chocolate fudge on a great Greek blog called craftcooklove written by Athina. Nick's favorite flavor is white chocolate and I was sold immediately!
I just combined 300g of white chocolate with 3/4 of condensed sugared milk in a pan over medium temperature until the chocolate melted.
I then poured it in a container over baking paper and let it set for 10 minutes in the fridge.
I sprinkled with sugar straps instead of the candy Athina used on top and added a few crashed biscuits too since my hubby seems to like them so much! The fudge was perfect!
After leaving it to the fridge for a couple of hours, I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to make hearts
and rolled the rest with my hands to make small balls.
Nick loved them and I was so happy! I find they should be left outside the fridge for 5-10 minutes before consumption to be more tasteful!
And then today the gift I got for Nick came in the mail and he was thrilled! I got him a Bonsai Tree Kit for a Giant Sequoia since he always talks about these amazing huge trees and how ancient they are and all that. So I hope the little seeds turn into a plant and then hopefully a tree! He was really excited about it so I think I nailed this Valentines day gift ;)
What did you do on Valentines day? Did you give or receive any gifts?
Smouts for now!
