baking with tala: christmas chocolates

just in case you're somehow not feeling the festive cheer yet, here's a super quick and easy way to remedy that.
last week i was sent these christmassy baking goodies from tala - perfect to whip up some last minute treats for family and friends, or just for a well deserved snack for yourself.

i absolutely love the star lolly mould and think that it's going to make many an appearance throughout the year, not just at christmas. the lolly sticks that came with it are re-usable which is great, but i also bought a pack of paper sticks which means i can make a whole bunch of lollies as gifts.
to add a little more sparkle, i bought some edible glitter and sprinkled it into the tips of the stars before i filled them with melted chocolate.

for the gingerbread men and candy canes, i added mini marshmallows to the moulds which turned out super yummy (ignoring j's comment that they looked deformed!).
these were so addictive to make and set surprisingly quickly - i can see them becoming a frequent addition to my snack cupboard!


  1. YUM. Seriously. YUM. Love those lollies, and the gingerbread men are adorable - no matter what J says! :) Hope you guys have an amazing Christmas xxx

  2. Aww those gingerbread men are so cute, and they are perfect for gifts and parties! I don't think they'd last long in my house!! :)
