Well the month of February is almost over, so thought I must post a Valentine teatime.
The first time I saw a chocolate medallion was when visiting a chocolate shop in Paris.
For Valentine's Day this year I decided to replicate the medallion for a tea time treat.
They are actually quite easy and a fun thing to do.
I bought a chocolate bar at the market and melted it in the microwave.
On the parchment paper I traced circles where I spread the melted chocolate.
Then searching through my cupboards I found some almonds, cashews, dried fruit and
then sprinkled dried marigold petals from our garden on top.
I think they turned out rather pretty after a cooling in the refrigerator.
so thawing them out it was a buffet of Valentine sweets to celebrate the day of love.
And then it was teatime!
Have you ever tried replicating something your have seen in a bakery, chocolate shop,
or restaurant? How did it go? Do you keep sweet treats in the freezer for a special teatime treat?
Tea time is my favorite time to try for something pretty with sweets.
Happy weekend, dear friends!
Hope you have the opportunity to add a special sweet to your teatime.
