Our anniversary has rolled around and this year I have no dollars to spend, so instead I’m giving you a promise for every year that we have been blissfully married!
I promise to not wake you on Sunday mornings.
I promise to not stack the wet dishes on top of the dry.
I promise to put on a jumper before turning up the heater.
I promise to make you Chocolate Mousse.
I promise to not take it personally when you are tired and cranky.
I promise to listen, with interest, to your football woes, or hopefully joys!
I promise to not leave my socks lying around.
I promise to listen, without complaint, to your music.
And just because I think you are great I’m giving you one more:
I promise to love you deeply for this coming year and all the years after that.
Thank you for choosing me.
My not-quite-a-wholefoodie husband loves these, so I thought they would be perfect to share today. I hope you enjoy them too.
Mix and Make Choc Almond Truffles
- 5 tablespoons almond butter / spread
- 2 tablespoons cacao or cocoa
- 2 tablespoons honey*
- 100 grams dark chocolate, roughly broken**
- In a medium sized bowl mix the almond butter and honey. Add the cacao or cocoa and mix to combine.
- Roll the mixture into 10 balls and sit each one in a silicon loaf pan or in a container lined with baking paper.
- Place the balls into the freezer for 30 minutes. After 25 minutes gently melt the broken chocolate in a ramekin or small bowl.
- Remove the balls from the freezer and put them onto a plate.
- Use a small spoon to dip the balls into the melted chocolate and return them to the silicon pan or lined container. Once the balls have all been dipped, drizzle them with the remaining chocolate.
- Place in the fridge to set.
*you can use rice malt syrup if you prefer.
**you can use a homemade chocolate such as the one we use here or here. As I often make these for gifts, I like them to be stable at room temperature and therefore prefer to use a delicious block of 85% dark chocolate.
