Now that we r done with packing n tagging the next on the mind is some kind of chocolate……how abt something crunchier??? candy??.........chocolate almond candy....

¾ cup sugar
¾ cup cooking chocolate
¼ cup finely chopped almonds



Melt the sugar.





Break the chocolate to smaller pieces n add to the sugar.
Let it melt.




Add almonds.




Pour into moulds.





De mould…..n wrap them up.
 U cud use the nuts of u r choice but they shud b crushed or finely chopped.

Strawberry melon frappé....



Simply blend the fruits with some lime n crushed ice.

Want to make it a little fizzy..add a bit of ENO!!
Garnish with lemon or a melon ball..n ya don’t forget to deseed the melon.
N now its our dessert…..


Strawberry cream hearts



Cut the bread with a heart shaped cookie cutter
Bake till golden brown





Strawberry syrup….
1 cup sugar
½ cup water
2 cups strawberries

Crush the strawberries.
Cook with sugar n water(one thread consistency).
Cool.
Dip the bread in this syrup.
Cover the hearts with sweetened whipped cream.
Garnish with hearts cut out frm strawberries.






(the strawberry syrup can also b made frm ready strawberry crush..dilute it n cook for a few secs).
