Bakemasters Celebrates World Chocolate Day!

That’s right, World Chocolate Day – It’s September 4th. Mark your calendars for next year because it’s a fun one to celebrate =) This year it fell on one of Hubby’s Toastmasters nights, so I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the September Bakemasters – make chocolates. And since it coincided with “back to school”, I called it Chocolate School. We had sandwiches with carrot sticks, fruit, and chips, like the packed lunches of yore and then got down to making our own chocolates.

This required a bit of preparation on my part. Time to put together the “school supplies”. First I gathered the obvious:

  • Speculoos spread
  • Nutella
  • blocks of white chocolate, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate
  • marshmallows
  • pretzels
  • powdered sugar

Then I made some extras:

And cookie dough, yum cookie dough. Oh and no bake cookie bars (but I’ll tell you all about those later =p)

School supplies in hand, it was time to do my homework like a good pupil. Before the other bakemasters got there I prepared a bunch of chocolate shells using cupcake liners and cupcake tins. Just think reeses cups (but oh so much better!) All you do is melt some chocolate, pour some into the bottom of a cupcake liner and use a spoon to drag the excess up the sides. Put it into the refrigerator until it hardens and voilà – perfect little chocolate shells ready to filled with yumminess. And fill them with yumminess we did. Check it out:

Yum yum, I think we deserve an A+ =)

What’s your favourite kind of chocolate?

      And so easy to do. Makes me wonder why I ever went out and bought peanut butter cups!
