I had a fun time making some chocolate covered nuts yesterday for Easter, so thought I’d share it here…

First, melt the baking chocolate in a double boiler, or a saucepan in a larger saucepan with boiling water…

Then, when its melted, turn off the heat and stir in your nuts – I used hazelnuts, pecans, and almonds.  Coat them well.

Spoon out clusters of nuts – maybe 3-4 nuts per cluster –  and place them onto baking paper/parchment paper lined baking tray and decorate with sprinkles or whatever your heart desires.  Place it in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Take them out to sit until brought to room temperature and don’t melt in your hand when you try to pick it up.

If they manage to make it – store them in an airtight container and share them with all your friends!  And Happy Easter to all! : )


Yeah!  I tried my first ever chocolate since being dairy free – coming up on two years!  It came in the form of a vegan chocolate bar made with soya instead of milk…and it was d-i-v-i-n-e!  My Man even tried it…and he thought it was nice too…so we’ve got a winner!!!  I tried the Plamil mint chocolate – click on the image for more info…

So, I had one small square {I wanted to eat the whole thing…oinker} and we’ll be patient and see if there are any side-effects…then I can dig in again!  Yay!  For those who don’t know, I am allergic to dairy…yeah…something like this.  My cousin is, and possibly my sister too…time will tell…  But the strange thing is that none of us have discovered this untill later in life…so anywho…  If you want to know more about going dairy free look here: go dairy free.  There are other places online…but I would start with this one…

So, today I am starting my autumn cleaning…and will hopefully have more to say about it later!
