How to Make Delicious Chocolate Delights

We all know that one person, who manages to always get birthday and Christmas and Valetines presents with perfect timing, always finding the perfect gift. They float through life with the amazing gift of gift-giving.

I’m not one of those people.

I often leave buying presents for the last minute, which more than often ends up in delayed presents and cards. Which is weird considering how organised I can be in everything else Huh. Anyways, this past Christmas was no different, but at least I had a simple solution thanks to the tip from Rosie.

I know, I know, Christmas is now officially over, but I didn’t get a chance to share this delight with you guys before. And yes yes, I know it’s January and many are on detox/dry/reboot and whatnots, but this little piece of delight has many benefits, I promise you.

Chocolate vie Teffy's Perks

First off I used dark chocolate, which is not only packed with antioxidants but also good for the heart and brain. I also used nuts, which are full of good fats which aid in lowering cholesterol, and an added sprinkle of goji berries provide even more antioxidants as well as Vitamin A. See, told you it had some perks!
Now, maybe the white chocolate, honeycomb, and silver sugar balls don’t help very much in the whole nutritional cause, but they sure taste delicious! If you’re going for a healthier version though, sub them for some other nuts and some more dried fruit such as pistachios and cranberries.

Chocolate vie Teffy's Perks

In order to make 6 goodie bags, you will need:

  • 600g good quality dark chocolate
  • 300g Honeycomb (or 6 Crunchie Bars)
  • 2 handfuls of pecan nuts
  • 2 handfuls of almonds
  • 1 handful of dried goji berries
  • 2 handfuls of white chocolate (I used starts, but nibs & pieces would work just the same)
  • Sprinkle of silver sugar balls
  • Sprinkle of sea salt

Chocolate vie Teffy's Perks

Toast your nuts in a dry pan, but be careful not to burn them! Chop them up and set them to the side. Melt your chocolate in Bain Marie (use a heat proof bowl and put it over boiling water, so melting your chocolate in a way that it doesn’t burn) and once it’s completely molten, take off the heat and stir in your honeycomb.

Carefully pour your mixture on a baking tray lined with clingfilm. Sprinkle on all your toppings and push it down slightly with a spoon just so that it sinks a bit into the chocolate – this will guarantee that it doesn’t simply fall off when the chocolate sets!

Pop into the fridge for 2-3 hours, and voilà! Break it up and wrap in cellophane. Now, my breaking it up was not so glamorous, as I had to hammer the knife to get it to break. I’m sure there are simpler ways, so as long as you don’t cause any injury, feel free to break it up however you like!

Now, I know many of you will shy away from this at this time of year, but I am a firm believer of the 80/20 rule, and for me this delight falls in a grey area where, since it has both “good and bad”. I’ll let you be the judge of it!

Also, in light of it being January, I’ve decided to start a Wellness Wednesday post, where I will share with you guys some of my favourite wholesome and healthy recipes. What do you guys think? Please give me your feedback along the way =)

    These look beautiful! I saw Rosie’s post the other day and remember making these sorts of things when I was younger. To be honest, I think they’re the best presents one can give! I’m sharing a recipe for my perfect roast soon – it’s by no means healthy but oh so good and wholesome!

    • I had never made them before, but her post made me want them so badly! Everyone was so happy with their little treast, they even got protective over them! X

  • Emily Geoca

    I saw this on Rosie’s blog and my mouth immediately started watering! We don’t have Crunchie Bars here in the states, unfortunately, but I just tried them recently and they’re SO good. Hmmm craving a chocolate treat now 🙂

    • Yep Crunchie Bars are UK, but I’m sure they have honeycom there or something similar. Otherwise just get creative! I’m sure twix, snickers, or kit kats would be great as well. X

  • Scarlett Wonderland

    Well, there goes day one of the diet! These look AMAZEEE xxx

  • Yum, yum, yum! And, as I am stuck home on an ice day (yes, you read that correctly), I think I might actually have most of the ingredients to whip this up (minus the silver sugar balls and goji berries) – perfect for a cold day in VT! Thanks, Teffy!!

    • Ice day? That definitely does not sound fun. Chocolate will help for sure! X

  • Sophie

    • Everyone loved them, which is always great =)

  • I am really not great at gift giving either…I’m SUCH a procrastinator!! But with edible gifts like this…I suppose no one would even have to know that!

    • I even procrastinated when it came to making these!! At least they set in time, so no one even suspected anything. X

  • So tempting!!!! Happy New Year!
