I love to cook. I love to bake. I LOOOOOVE playing with chocolate! Ideally I'd love to have my own successful chocolate shop. Since that's not happening today, and I have to start somewhere, why not my kitchen? I'm always the one who brings dessert and decided to try experimenting with chocolate. I'd bring samples to friends, hoping to get honest opinions and always got rave reviews. After seeing one of my trays, a friend of mine asked if I would make favors for her daughter's 1st Holy Communion. I immediately said yes and then started to sweat! What was I going to make? I didn't have any communion molds, so I searched on line to get some ideas. The lollipops and crosses were what she decided on..... and so it began. In the past year and a half, I've made a few hundred communion favors and find that everyone likes something different, milk chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate. A few people wanted the crosses dusted, but most just stick to plain. It's chocolate so you can't go wrong either way!
