My Marvellous Melting Message Spoon.

My Marvellous Melting Message Spoon.

CHOCOLATE POST HERE!!!  ♥

This was a birthday gift that I got from my brother. It is called a Marvellous Melting Message Spoon. It is a silver spoon with a huge delicious hunk of chocolate on the end and a personalised message hidden under the chocolate.

The instructions said to stir into warm milk, let the chocolate melt and the secret message will be revealed. Well, what a fab gift! I love hot chocolate, I love the big hunk of chocolate on the end and then a secret personalised message. I was looking forward to using it, and also thought I would love to share the experience with my readers.

So, I set it all up. Warmed the milk, got my plate ready. Another little surprise when I opened it up was that it came with a little miniature spoon which is very cute.

So, I dipped it in the milk and enjoyed the rich taste as the chocolate melted. I didn’t really give it a chance to melt into the milk as I preferred to eat the melted chocolate off the spoon itself. Yum!

So, as it melted and as I enjoyed I was thinking what is the message going to be??

The secret personalised message said ‘Flossy’. This is the name that my Dad used to call me when I was young. My brother occasionally calls me this now. Our Dad died 12 years ago when I was 26. So, this was a really nice message for me to read.Now I have a lovely silver spoon personalised to me. The spoon is nice and long and I think will be perfect for ice cream sundays, or tall hot chocolate drinks.

So, thanks to my brother and his partner, the gift was a really good idea and much appreciated.

If anyone is interested in getting one of these, the packaging said ‘not on the high street’. I guess an online company. If anyone is really interested, leave a comment below and I will ask my bro where he got it from.

Thanks for reading, see you next time.

A Weekend of Baking.

A Weekend of Baking.

scones and jam.I decided that this weekend I would indulge in another of my favourite pass times. I have spent a lot of my recent free time reading. ( see my reviews). So it was time to do some baking. I made scones with raspberry jam. My first attempt at these were not so successful! I think I rolled them to thin, so they didn’t rise as much as I would have liked. 20140716_145407 Although they still tasted nice, they didn’t look the part and they weren’t fluffy enough. I used a recipe from @itvthismorning and @lisafaulkner1.

I used this link:

I have to say I was very impressed with how easy the jam was to make, it tasted very sweet and yummy. If I make the jam again,I would half the sugar amount as it was incredibly sweet.

I will definitely be making these again. With thanks to ITV This Morning and Lisa Faulkner.

If anyone has any tips on how to perfect scones, I would love to hear them.
