Boxing Day Blues?

Well Christmas day has long gone and past and we now celebrate Boxing Day what does Boxing day mean to you?

To mean it means, tidying up a little read for the fun and games later, having a luxury bubble bath with no interruptions, spending time with my family and friends catching up with people we did not see on Christmas Day.

Lastly and especially for me today listening and watching my 3 children en joy playing with their presents and helping them set up their new Xbox Kinnect so here's hoping for lots of fun exercise, a few chocolates  and also lots of leftovers along, no cooking today along with a few celebratory drinks to wash it all down with...

My friend Becky over at Baby Budgeting has a great post this is a snippet of it 

Good King Wenceslas
Acccording to the carol (and legend) “Good King Wenceslas.” Wenceslas, who was Duke of Bohemia in the early 10th century, was looking out onto his land  on St. Stephen’s Day ,Dec. 26,when he saw a poor man gathering wood in a snbowstorm. The King gathered up food and wine and carried them through the blizzard to the poor mans door. The alms-giving tradition has always been closely associated with the Christmas season, but King Wenceslas’ good deed came the day after Christmas. Giving and gifting to the needy is closely tied in with most accounts of the reson for boxing day

my thanks to her for bothering to look it all up!

Also another blogging friend at GhostWriterMummy has created a linky so we can all share our own reasons to be cheerful on Boxing Day and not dwell on Boxing Day Blues.. 
why not add your post to her linky now?

Have a great Boxing Day. Emma x

My sons Christmas poem

My 9yo had the day off school today with a bug but he decided to write a Christmas poem and this is what he wrote..

Christmas to me means presents under the tree!
Reindeer prancing, Nanny dancing...
Lots to eat 
- chocolates, mince pies, turkey, stuffing - 
What a treat
Pulling crackers, silly hats
The Queens speech and Grandad took a nap!
More presents from Santa's sack
Lots and lots to unwrap
Watch some telly with a full belly
Then time for bed, I'm a sleepy head

Sebastian age 9

So proud of him just have to share!

Well this snow hasn't stopped us yet!

Even the ice and snow hasn't stopped us creating and delivering our personalised chocolates. However the UK did stop and still has in Scotland with all of us grinding to a halt and taking to the hills with our toboggans. 

This is a shot my hubby took of the M2 last week it took him 11 hours to get home!

In between tobogganing with my 3 children at the weekend I found time to create a little chocolate and sweetie party bag for my sons 9th birthday party much to his friends delight!

Tomorrow we are off to the last of our local fairs in Orpington to meet our Mother's and Baby's, cannot believe my youngest is nearly 7!

A Crafty session making Chocolate Spoons

Becky a blogging friend of mine over at Baby Budgeting recently made chocolate spoons they look so good and are easy to make so I thought I would share her post and recipe with you all! 
Can't wait to try it out with my children. perfect for a snowy and have a hot chocolate themed chocolate spoon weekend!

Go to your local Pound store or supermarket and stock up on plastic spoons. Melt some chocolate in the microwave on 50% power for one minute Stir, and continue melting and checking every 10 seconds and stirring till its smooth. Dip spoons until generously covered with chocolate (a tiny bit fiddly to do …make sure its not too hot.)
Lay them on greaseproofpaeer cool down. You can jazz them up by rolling them in sprinkles or drizzling melted white chocolate on top.
Pop a couple of these with a little pack of hot chocolate in a celllophane and you have a gorgeous visiting gift ( or even a little Christmas gift – I’m thinking teachers, your neighbours, standby gifts etc.)
Happy creating!
(word of warning we ate all the spoons we made within half an hour of them setting…you get chocolate smeared all over your face so everyone knows too!!!)

Thanks for sharing with us Becky x

What an eventful week!

What a broken week it's been for me... 
 It started off with my 11 yo accidentally breaking the glass in my front door

Then our printer decided it wasn't going to talk to my Mac or Laptop so my husband had to give it a good talking too and now they are speaking to each other again :-) 

On Thursday my oven didn't like what I was cooking and set fire to itself... a very scary moment as flames shouted out but fortunately I remembered that flames need oxygen so I switch it off and closed the door! We had a few scary minutes while they died down luckily apart from a new element it all seems ok. 

My Mum was due to fly back from Lanzarote on Thursday the day of the awful winds 
but her airplane broke down, so my babysitter for Friday evening was not going to make it aaahhhh. 

On Friday morning my husband took our 11yo to the bus stop for school and got a blow out and so came home to borrow my car to get to work for the day.... 

 Lily holding the fort at the Christ church pamper and shopping evening in Chislehurst...
she saved the day and managed to organise her family and get to Christ Church for our fair and set up all on her own. Finally when I got my car back I was able to join her for the end of a very successful fair.

So my week really has been all broken!

These are our new ChocoSpell organic fairtrade Gift boxes which were loved by all...

Another Chocolate recipe.... mmm

As it is Chocolate week this week I was asked by Diary of a (not so) single mum 
if I would like to send her a Chocolate recipe. I have so many favourites but as it is my husbands birthday this week I thought I would send in one of his favourites.

A trusted Delia Smith recipe  which I hope she doesn't mind me sharing that has been used over and over again! In fact my cookery book is looking a little worn and worse for wear.... so with no further ado here it is...

Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding

You will need :

9 slice, each 1/4 inch (5mm) thick, good quality white bread, 1 day old, taken from a large loaf
5 oz (150g) dark continental chocolate with 75% cocoa solids
( of course I will be using our Chocolatier's delicious Organic Fairtrade chocolate when I make this later in the week!)
15 floz (425ml) whipping cream
4 tablespoons dark rum
4 oz (110g) caster sugar
3 oz (75g) butter
A good pinch cinnamon
3 x size 1 eggs

Shallow ovenproof dish 7 x 9 inches (18x23cm) x 2 inches (5cm) deep

Double cream, well chilled to serve

I am going to shorten the instructions as this is a really easy recipe, infact I'm sure you could work it out for yourself but just incase you need a little help...

  • Cut off crusts and cut each slice into 4 triangles
  • Place chocolate, whipping cream, rum , sugar, butter and cinnamon in bowl over saucepan of barely simmering water. Don't let the bowl touch the water, then wait for it all to melt and dissolve.
  • Remove the bowl and stir well.
  • In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and then blend with the chocolate mixture
  • Spoon 1/2 inch (1cm) layer of the chocolate mixture into your dish then place 1/2 the bread triangles in overlapping rows.
  • Pour 1/2 the remainder of the mixture over the and then add the second 1/2 of the bread triangles and finish off with the remainder of the chocolate mixture.
The hard part now is once you have smelt that chocolate it is very tempting to cook the pudding straight away but you know what the best things come to those who wait....

  • Allow to cool then cover the pudding with cling film and place in the fridge for a minimum of 24 hours ideally 48 hours if you can wait that long!  
  • Turn the oven on to gas mark 4, 350 degrees (180 degrees C)
  • Remove clingfilm and bake in the oven on a high shelf for 30-35 minutes, the top should be crunchy and the inside soft and squidgey.
  • Leave it to stand for 10 minutes before serving with well chilled double cream

Inspiring business mums conference

Well this has been a really busy week.

I met 3 wonderful ladies who put it all together for us Business Mums, Antonia Chitty, Nicky Chisholm and Suzanne Borrell who orgnaised the first Business Mums Conference in Brighton...

Just wish I had booked into a hotel and stayed over as those shops looked so inviting but the conference was too good to miss must add to to do list for next years conference!

What people said about The Business Mums Conference 2010:

"Inspiration, advice, networking, fun – the best conference I have attended!"

" A great day out, a sense of belonging to a community of like minded people, lots of ideas how to move forward."

" Thank you so much for such a well organised event, well worth the money and time to attend."

The day just whizzed by with some fantastic speakers and networking over a glass of fizz and the divine ChocChick truffles.

I am not usually a lover of plain chocolate but if you are and fancy making your own do check John Lewis Bluewater who are soon to be stocking their chocolate kits. Infact I hope to get some on board as we are off to a number of fairs soon and I am sure they would make popular Xmas presents... must add this to my list.

Purple Haze fabulous Wedding Favours

Earlier in the Summer we made up a wrapper design for one of our brides with purple font as she wanted to over foil our chocolate in purple. 

We sent out her order like this...

Getting ready for Business Mums Conference #BMC2010

It's been a really busy few weeks as I had no internet for sometime a long story so I'm now catching up and lots of chocolate orders are flying out the door.

I will be posting the pictures soon but in the meantime I felt I had to show off our new Organic Fairtrade Belgian 10 gram Chocolate bars.

We finished making up a big box of our delicious hand made and hand wrapped Organic Fairtrade Milk Chocolate bars earlier today so if you are coming to the Business Mums Conference in Brighton next week on the 5th October do try you will find one in your goody bag just remember we wrapped each and every one!

We are launching our new site Chocospell Organic soon and you can either purchase our ChocoSpell Personaliced Chocolate Telelgram to send to friends or family or perhaps buy a license and set up your own ChocoSpell business.

I'm really looking forward to the conference and hope to mingle and catch up with some of you there as well as taking new ideas on board...think I better book my train ticket!

New Wedding Favours Video Summer 2010

Summer is nearly over although you wouldn't think it today as we have experienced lots of sunshine as I  loaded our most recent wedding favours video into You Tube.

A wonderful reminder for me and all our lovely wedding couples of the chocolate favours they shared with their friends and family.

This has to be my most favourite video production to date although I wish had done something with my hair and added a little make up for the occasion!

Enjoy x

Nutella Pancakes

When I read on Twitter that my friend NotSoSingleMum was organising a Nutella Carnival I had to take a detour on the way home to pick some up!

I just love Nutella and thought I would rise to the challenge. My kids love making pancakes so this proved to be a relatively easy choice to occupy them on a Sunday morning with just a little stress thrown in for good measure!

Stress I hear you say surely not, afraid my dear 6 yo daughter helped weigh, mix, pour and spoon delicious Nutella and toss the pancakes. But when asked to pose for the photos she flatly refused saying " I don't want you to put my picture on Facebook, your going to put it on Facebook!" I was mortified I tried to reassure her to no avail... will she be shy of Facebook when she's older?

So one of my boys stepped in for the photo.

Here's the recipe why not give it a go...makes about 6 pancakes double the quantities for a hungry family!

Nutella 2 Tablespoons

2 Eggs

4 oz Plain Flour
3 fl ozWater

7 fl oz Milk

2oz Melted Butter

  • Put flour in bowl add eggs and mix.

  • Combine water & milk gradually pour into mixture and mix together a little at a time - be careful to make sure there are no lumps...

  • Add 1 tablespoon of melted butter & use the rest to cook the pancakes with.

  • Add 2 tablespoons of melted Nutella to the mix

  • Use a little melted butter to fry each pancake on a medium heat. When it starts to bubble & rise it is time to toss them & cook the other side!

  • Serve with melted Nutella either inside before rolling or & drizzled over the top. We didn't have any icecream but add your choice for a decadent breakfast or dessert.
No holding back once the pancakes were ready, we had 2 pans on the go and Nutella Pancakes with extra Nutella and sugar were a big hit!

    Enjoy :-)

    Busy humid day here at Say it with Chocolate

    Had one of our busiest printing and wrapping days so far...over 500 chocolate bars sat in boxes on the floor at one point and still more to go but think it is time for bed very soon as the witching hour has long passed!

    Glad my children were at school their little eyes would have been on stalks!

    Interesting Chocolate may give you Depression?

    Do have a look at this BBC News Article I just came across

    Great Wedding Saving Site

    Have just come across this new site from and Saffron Building Society and Wedding Magazine aimed at saving for your big day, what a great idea....wish this had been around 13 years ago when I got married. Really easy to navigate and lots of tips do have a look.

    Another Happy Wedding Chocolate Favour Customer

    Thought it was about time I posted another testimonial on our blog. We're getting quite a few at the moment but we're so busy designing and wrapping for the current wedding season... I'm finding the testimonials hard to keep up with...which is GREAT thank you to all of you who take the time to reply... it just makes it even more worthwhile and certainly brings a smile to our faces!

    Dear Emma and Lily,

    Hope you are both well?

    We just wanted to send a quick email to say a huge thank you to you both for all your hard work and dedication into providing us with the wedding favours we had wished for.

    They were fantastic and linked well with our colours and theme. They were a success with all our guests as well.

    Thank you again and we will be definitely recommending Say it With Chocolate.

    I have attached a photo of our favour for you that was taken on our big day.

    Best wishes

    Liz and David Shafford

    Top 5 Honeymoon Destinations

    The Articles Boutique | Honeymoon in the Caribbean- Best Honeymoon Destinations

    Honeymoon in the Caribbean- Best Honeymoon Destinations


    The Caribbean is one of the Best Honeymoon Destinations in the world. Out of all the different places which make up the Caribbean you will be ready to have whatever sort of honeymoon you desire.

    Whether or not it is spending all day relaxing on the beach, golfing, intense water sports or simply an isolated getaway where you are the only 2 people around. The Caribbean has something for everybody.

    I have come up with the top 5 places to Honeymoon in the Caribbean.

    1. Cancun
    On Mexico's Eastern coastline Cancun is thought of by many as the premier honeymoon destination, simply because it has it all. You can swim all day at one of the many beaches, play golf in some of the best golf courses, shop to your heart's content and then live it up at night in one of the numerous clubs.

    2. Punta Cana
    On the eastern side of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana has beaches coated with coconut trees giving it the nickname the Coconut Coast. If you are looking for a laid back relaxing beach honeymoon, this is the location for you.

    3. Antigua
    With almost 400 beaches, Antigua is surely a place for the sun loving water babies. The beaches are mostly protected from the wind from the island itself, so you can enjoy swimming in the wonderfully clear waters and sunbathing in the eggshell white sand all day long.

    4. The Bahamas
    With approximately seven hundred different islands varying in sizes The Bahamas make a particularly flexible honeymoon destination. The biggest island is Grand Bahama Island that has several all inclusive resorts or you can stay on one of many other islands including Nassau or Paradise Island. The neatest thing about the Bahamas is the fact it's so straightforward to travel to from anywhere in the USA.

    5. Jamaica
    Likely one of the most cheap islands in the Caribbean ; Jamaica is widely known for Reggae, rum and jerk chicken. But there's so very much more to this pretty island. In size Jamaica is the third largest in the Caribbean and they talk English so you do not have to fret about translation issues. With a climate that's perfect year round Jamaica has it all.

    Caribbean Honeymoons are a great option, but there are plenty of other places to choose from. Check out my website, Honeymoon Nation for honeymoon ideas, blogs, forums, pictures, videos and more.

    Fantastic night at The Glitter Pot

    Had a fun girlie night at The Glitter Pot Ladies Pamper Evening on Friday at The Highway School. It was really well organised well done Louise and Kerrie, love the men in tuxedo's just wondered if they may have been going to offer The Full Monty... but sadly they were only the rather smartly dressed barman, nice touch though.

    But on a more serious note we met some great ladies especially Rachel of Magpie Glass do have a look at her handmade glass jewellery as it is absolutely fantastic!

    Our Father's Day bars were also a hit, don't forget it's on the 20th June just a month away... so do check out our online shop for our special personalised Dad's Chocolate Bars.

    Say it with Chocolate sponsored The May Ball Chocolates

    Just showing off the chocolates designed by Lily for the Farrington School May Ball last Saturday.

    Jackie said ' Thank you the chocolates were a big hit! The headmistress loved them, as did many of the parents, so I am sure you will be getting some calls soon'

    The prom season is fast approaching so if you are looking for something different for your ball do get in touch and we can work on a special chocolate wrapper for you.

    My favourite Chocolate Birthday Card

    It was my birthday recently so I thought I would share a snapshot I took of my favourite birthday card. This particular card was posted to me by a very special longstanding school friend, I cannot divulge how long I have known her but she knows me very well!

    In case you cannot make out the writing on the card it reads SAVE THE EARTH, IT'S THE ONLY PLANET WITH CHOCOLATE and if I didn't love my friend I might just think she thought the little piggy was me...

    I would also like to quote from a little book of Chocoholic's quotations she once gave me 'Never eat more than you can lift.' Miss Piggy's Guide to Life I thought this was particularly apt.
