How to Store Chocolate

How to Store Chocolate

Happy Father’s Day to all you wonderful men out there! I will be remembering my papa today as it has been a year since he suddenly passed away and I will reflect on all the good times to keep me going. Also would like us women to acknowledge all the men in our lives today and how they have helped shape our paths, directly or indirectly. I would also like to reach out to women who are particularly feeling burnt out or extremely hurt by a man in your life that may have disappointed you. Please don’t let that taint your heart and close yourself to all the good men out there. There are still some whether you believe it or not… just don’t harden your heart and learn to weed out the good ones from the bad ones. It is hard to find a good father figure these days, especially as we women don’t seem to be given enough respect in their eyes. But we can change that. We just all need to continue to remain strong, carry ourselves with dignity and the right man will come along and run that path beside us. (When the queen is ready, the king will appear) so get ready. Let’s shine as women, acknowledge those awesome father figures in our lives. And if you can’t find one, get one. One that is a shining example of the father you have always wanted! Here is a video to the question “How to Store Chocolates”, I also announce the winner of the free chocolate give away so be sure to stay to the very end of the video to watch the funny outtakes at the end too!

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: (Click the play button to watch the video)

Well hello what are you doing in my fridge? Well you asked me a question, so i’m here to answer, how do I Store chocolate? Do I store them in the fridge, what do I do with them? Yes, you can store chocolate in the fridge but it is best savoured at room temperature. So if you are living in a warmer climate then yes by all means store them in the fridge, anything between 13 and 20 degrees celcius is ideal for storing chocolates. If you have a wine refrigerator that’s perfect for storing chocolates as well. Ideally, store them in the original packaging. If you can’t do that for whatever reason, then a plastic container will do just make sure that it is not a cheap one, layer it with some kitchen paper, when you are ready to eat them just bring the entire container out into room temperature before you open it so there is no condensation on your chocolates.So I hope that as answered your questions, until next time in the next video. Ciao.

I forgot to announce the winner of the chocolate giveaway so I put all your beautiful names into a hat and I have a winner! And the winner is… Sheri Graubert!!!! Congratulations, you won yourself a beautiful chocolate bar from La Signorina.

DIY: Chocolate, Red and Gold Nails

In this video I show you how to paint your nails using the colours Chocolate, Red and Gold. This is perfect for a girls night in or as part of your bridal shower or hen night. Watch me get a bit theatrical in the beginning for a bit of a laugh and the camera got blurry towards the end as I tried to show off the finished nails. Oops! I guess I need to get a more powerful lens to show the detail. Enjoy the video though, hope you like it and let me know your thoughts or comments. Love hearing from you! 🙂

Barbajada – Italian Chocolate and Coffee Drink Recipe (Video Blog)

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

She does the introduction into the drink from Italy called Barbajada from the 19th Century, just coffee, milk and chocolate mixed in equal proportions mixed with cream. You can serve hot or cold. As it’s spring time in London she will be making it hot as it’s still chilly in England. You can have this with Panettone or Pandoro (Italian sweet bread usually available during the Christmas season)

Before we begin, she shows how to use an Italian Caffettiera, found in a lot of Italian homes, used to make coffee. She uses Lavazza Qualita Rossa ground coffee, reccommends also using Illy Ground Italian Coffee or any other Italian ground coffee. She explains how to use the three sections of the Caffetteria.

Music comes on showing the measurements and making of Barbajada Drink recipe:

2 teaspoons of Fairtrade Sugar

150g of Fairtrade Dark Chocolate

150 ml of Milk or Water (add gradually)

Mix together on low heat

Add 150ml of Coffee

Whisk Whipping Cream on a medium to high setting,

Whisk Chocolate and Coffee mixture until you get some froth…

Pour Chocolate and coffee mixture into a mug three quaters of the way, top up with your whipped cream

She tastes the drink, amazing, you have to try it, this is perfect for winter. You’ll love it.

What she really loves about this drink is the contrast between the cold whipped cream and the hot chocolate and coffee melting into mouth, it’s a great contrast. If you are not into contrasting and you just want one solid drink, just give it a good mix. Please feel free to leave a comment in the comment box below, let her know how it went and let her know your thoughts on this amazing drink.
