1. Chocolate lollipops

Ok so if you’ve been following me for a while you’ll have seen that I love Valentine’s. I made these last year but I decided to try and jazz them up a bit. I saw this idea on pinterest and HAD to try em!

Last year I just made chocolates, but this year I’m actually using the mould how you are meant to and made lollipops!! I have no idea but I was super excited about it!

Lets get into this!

You will need: 500g of chocolate (I chose white chocolate)

                           Sprinkles of your choice

                           A lollipop mould. (I have a lips one that I bought especially for Valentine’s last year) You can get them in most baking shops.

Just melt the chocolate until its melted and smooth. This can take a while, but do it slow and steady as if you do it too quick it goes all funny. While thats melting get your mould ready! This is when I added some sprinkles at the bottom of the mould and then added in the sticks.

Once I was happy with the texture of the chocolate I used a tea spoon to add the chocolate in. I tried to knock out the air by tapping it on the counter lightly and then lashed them in the freezer.

ValentinesWishList

Ok so first let me start by saying I will not nor do I expect to get any of this for Valentine’s Day. We are currently saving and have agreed to do homemade gifts. 

I love doing wish lists and lists in general really, its a big part of my life so you can expect to see it a lot more on here!

I love valentines day! I know its so commercial, but it’s such a nice day to show your loved ones how much you care. I used to send my sisters and Mum a little valentines gift, but now its just too much effort and I never got the impression that anyone actually appreciated it so I don’t do it anymore.  Anyway that wasn’t relevant at all…
