Merry Christmas!

Here's a bit of Christmas cheer and a last minute make for anyone who you've forgotten about, it's sure to raise a smile!

Chocolate moustaches!!!

Old timey sepia and border to give it that Western feeling.  Me with a milk chocolate and orange moustache lollipop

So easy to make, all you need is melted milk chocolate, either in a ban marie or in the microwave or if you're posh like me (!) in a chocolate fondue melter and once melted add a few drops of orange flavouring and then pour into a mould of your choice.  Set aside to cool and then place in the fridge to set overnight.    Normally I wouldn't put chocolate in the fridge but once it's been melted and flavouring added it tends to melt a lot quicker so keeping it in the fridge until you need it is the best.  I got the mould sent over from America for me by my very dear friend Giles as they wouldn't deliver to the UK but now I've found a company over here who stock very lovely chocolate moulds but haven't ordered from them yet.  Just google chocolate moulds and I'm sure you'll find some funky ones!

And because it's Christmas, here's a few more funny pictures for your enjoyment!

Aww, looks like a twinkle in my eye, but it's the reflection of the light on my glasses!

Got to keep those moustache points twisted!

Sneaky moustache pose!

Merry Christmas!
