After having a relatively sweet-free Lent and enjoying its results, I told my husband that we should minimize candies and sweet stuff in our home. My husband happily agreed until he saw that the chocolates I love are severely discounted in the groceries. So, tossing resolutions aside, he bought three bags of M&M Peanut eggs at one time, with some Cadbury Eggs thrown in for good measure. Then a box of Ferreros at another.
And three bags of Lindt most recently.
But, much as I love these chocolates, there is a kind that I treasure like gold in our house. I come by them only so rarely. My sister makes them out of the beans that she collected from the fruits of the cocoa trees growing in our backyard. I refer to Tableya, a.k.a., chocolate balls.
They make the best hot chocolate. Ever. 🙂
Best of all, they remind me of the place and the time when I was growing up. 🙂
