Normally we start with making chocolates.For this year 20 kgs of chocolate was ordered and about 10 kgs of
mixed nuts.The nuts included walnuts, cashews almond and raisins.So in all we
made 30kgs of chocolate.The ratio and
the choice of nuts is very personal, one can always vary on these.The procedure
to make these is simple and actually does not take long if one has extra hands
for help, which I had.
