The Sweet Swap 2014
So for starters, having little sweet packages of gorgeousness arrive at your door every second day for a week is awesome! I really could not recommend it more. If you get a chance to be involved in next years Sweet Swap or if you have friends kind enough to send you little packets of chocolately goodness in the mail, then make like Nike and Just Do It.
A word of warning though, finding appropriate packaging is freakin’ stressful. So make something that will transport well and arrive intact.
Now to get to the good stuff, the food.
After much deliberation and one burnt finger, I made Chocolate Truffles. Mainly because I like chocolate truffles but also because I had read a few interesting recipes recently on how to create and infuse interesting flavours into your chocolates.
Obviously I could not just copy someone else’s recipe so I had to go all Master Chef Invention Test and make up my own.
Then there were the lovely sweets that arrived on my door step……….
and caramel scented air kisses to Katherine at A Cupcake or Two, for the Salted Caramels with Chilli and Fennel. http://www.acupcakeortwo.com The packaging was beautiful.
I love love loved the experience. A huge thank you to Sara from Belly Rumbles and Amanda from Chewtown for organising the event and letting me partake! 🙂 It was great “meeting” so many other Aussie food bloggers and I was a little star struck that my own humble truffles made their way to the lovely Sandra at The $120 Food Challenge.
