Well it's that time of the year again here in Oz; Easter that is and with all that chocolate floating around I sure as heck will not be missing out. I guess you could call them a truffle but I have stuffed these beauties into a mould and called them Easter bounty aka Choc Mint Truffles. In fact these ones I made for my mum because she loves all things mint and being Easter that would be all things mint and chocolate.
Easter in our house usually goes like this; Good Friday starts with oven heated hot cross buns and then a large dose of Easter Television i.e. The Ten Commandments or The Story of Easter and Saturday is much the same. By Sunday morning those kids err teenagers leap out of bed looking for chocolate faster than jack rabbits. Once the bounty has been found the blood sugar roller coaster ride begins and the frenzied chocolate scoffing ensues with the periodic trading, fighting, arguing, crying and eventually peace because they are in a sugar coma and either sleeping or staring at the TV. And after all of that there is remorse; remorse for over eating, remorse for lying around for days at a time and remorse that they didn't make the chocolate last longer.
Meanwhile back at camp stable blood sugar the only remorse I have is giving in and buying that awful blood sugar spiking commercial chocolate and not insisting that they eat my chocolate. Well this year WILL be different. I will be doing a whole lot of sharing and whilst I did cave in and buy some commercial chocolate it is just enough to relish and not enough to over indulge. Besides they now know what really good chocolate tastes like and that I can produce it within minutes; far quicker than climbing out of the chair and going to the shops. They could even become energised by the ingredients and all those antioxidants and dare I say it motivated to get off the couch and go to the movie theatre. I hear they are showing reruns of old Al Pacino movies.
Happy Easter and enjoy your day.
