Our featured reviews for Christmas this year are insane. I put out our review calendar on November 1st on a few places and contacted a few people who had asked me about winter holidays months back, and in four days 9 of 16 dates were claimed. Now we are down to 3 dates right before Christmas and 2 before New Years.
We're tackling a wider range of products this year from drinks and food to soap and calendars all using or focused on chocolate.
I found a great chocolatier out of Illinois of all places to feature on my site. They make the best baby shoes and chocolate pizzas. I intend to send a box of their chocolates to all my friends and family. I love sharing handmade goodness during the holidays - it warms my heart.
When I got my chocolate gear 3 months ago, I thought it would be a mostly solitary endeavor with the exception of all the happy recipients of free chocolate. But, several of my friends showed quite a bit of enthusiasm in having a chocolate making party and it was awesome.
My next project is going to be the gianduja I was asking for advice on a few months back.
We have lots of "ferias" this time of year. I'm making cake pops in the shape of gingerbread men, and enrobing them in my 75% dark organic chocolate. Kids and adults alike love these! Also making ginger spice truffle again, as well as the favorite "holiday special" , a bark with cranberries, pecans, and coconut. Still early, but starting to get in the spirit!
