These were actually done by my best friend and I for Christmas 2006. I got the idea from a work colleague and we thought they would make great little gifts for people.
- 1 packet of Arnott's Chocolate Royals
- White melting chocolate (we used Nestle melts)
- 1 packet Jaffas
- 1 packet confectionery mint leaves
Cut the mint leaves into quarters and re-coat in caster sugar so that all sides are sugared.
Lay out the chocolate royals on a baking dish. Melt the white chocolate and place a good dollop on to of each chocolate royal. Working quickly before the chocolate sets, place a jaffa and 2 mint leaves on top.
Put in the fridge to set.

Hi there to anyone out there actually reading this!
I thought I'd start a food blog since I have recently found a new passion in life, cooking. It seems to be a lot cheaper than my other passion, shopping! Although I love buying new cook books with the pretty pictures which isn't so cheap!
My favourite celebrity chefs at the moment are Nigella Lawson and Donna Hay. I wish Ainsley Harriott was back on TV, he used to be so much fun to watch! Lucky I got a book of his cheap on eBay and it arrived in the post today! =D
Well I hope to do a post every time I make something new or spectacular, I will just need to remember to take photos instead of eating it straight away!
Right now I'll leave you with my funky ginger bread characters my mum and I did over Christmas!
