Is there anything better than fresh, homemade chocolate?? Chocolate lovers of the world, say YES along with me. Because these sweet things can be real, feel-yummy condiment of your own home using just 4 ingredients.
Day before the weekend, I had plans to make these incredible chocolates anticipating it could delight the kids on holidays. It really could have become a worth surprise to my kids as they never imagined making chocolates at home is actually possible. I was excited too and it all started very well. I assembled the ingredients, sieving, cooking and freezing the chocolate was absolutely successful.
But as I moved to styling my chocolates, compose and photograph it, it was all dark outside. No light was entering in through the window. SAD!!! It’s because UAE has terribly hit by winter with temperature falling down to 12 degree Celsius, chilly wind and rain followed making the weather worse. Some of the peak mountains here were even covered themselves with snow. It was all awesome weather for middle-eastern people but I wasn’t happy. I had to postpone clicking part of chocolates to next day.
The next part of the story is hiding the chocolates from kids in order to protect it for photographing. You all wonderful women in the world know how hard it is. Keeping such a addictive homemade chocolate out of sight from children was quite challenging. But, my sensible kids bore with me and understood the priorities of food-blogger mom. Finally I could click few decent shots in modest light in the early afternoon today. Though the pictures are not up to my level of expectation, I freed up my box of homemade chocolates for eating.
Kids have indulged in these condiments since morning and appreciated the taste, the texture and glossy chocolaty-color. I guess I should be ready with my next batch of chocolates soon.
