|Crunchy Nutty Chocolate|
Hope everyone had a Great weekend..I enjoyed this weekend by Cooking(ofcourse),had a Great Shopping and Slept a lot(Yes,tired of Shopping).Lets start this week with a Delicious Simple Chocolate.I know everyone loves chocolate.But I love it it anyform especially this one.I made this for my Sister, She was asking me to do this for such a long time for her friends.This week I thought of making it and I Made it.
This is one of Nigella Lawson’s Recipe,I got this from one of her Best selling book “Nigella Christmas”.But I made slight modifications as usual..But it still looks like the same thing in the picture(check out the picture down).YAY..I DONE IT AGAIN….The cool thing in this recipe is with a little amount of good Chocolate you could get a massive amount of chocolate bars.Totally I got around 40 bars of chocolate pieces(Imp:Most of them I finished that day itself…Yippee).This is great as giving presents or for a party.The original recipe calls for dark chocolate chips,I couldn’t find that amazing thing anywhere over here…So I used Bournville Dark chocolate Bar(80rs pack),If any of you find that wonderful chocolate chips anywhere here,please let me know.Also you could use any nuts as per your wish or skip any nuts if you don’t like them.This is a extremely flexible recipe,You could make it as per your taste.Ok Give it a try and please leave comments.
