It’s been a while since I did any chocolate making. Homemade chocolates are a great way to say thank you. They also make a delicious gift or can provide an indulgent pick-me-up. These whisky truffles with dark chocolate and fresh cream ticked all of the above.
The wonderful thing about making your own granola is that you can include or exclude pretty much anything you want.
