    I have just made some chocolates out of the chocolate sachets and they look fantastic. When on the cambridge I was boring and just added water to my sachet and off I went. But now hearing you guys doing these different idea's with your sachet I am going to try a few more.
    I have put them in the freezer for a little while and I can't wait to have them as a treat tomorrow at work. It was good making them as we all love to lick our fingers don't we.:)

    Well done and good for you. :D

    For me, I only really add water and pysillium husk. I'm not a huge fan of the recipes although I do make the odd muffin.

    ooo nick they r really nice. doesnt taste like a pack too much either (if u know what i mean) bit more realistic!

    they work nice with choc mint packs as well.

    ENJOY!!!

    fab idea flirty! i can make some for myself instead of just drooling when hubby opens the lindt choccies i bought him.

    i am rubbish at making the crisps and muffins. truffles r the only thing i can manage but they r so yummy. i dont even like truffles in real life (cos CD isnt like my old world lol)

    i wonder how truffles taste if u add a bit of the orange or berry flavour?? just a thought...

    I can't do the crisps either. Use to make the muffins - but can't be bothered now. Imagine would work nicely with water flavourings ... orange will taste like terry's choc orange ... that gives me an ides .. I have segment moulds for ice cubes!! Make segments of choc orange!!

    Hi Everyone,

    This probably sounds stupid, but how do you make the chocolates? Thanks,

    Make a choc sachet up with enough water to make into a paste .... then freeze - either in a block or in small dollops!!

    Forgot to say best put on grease proof paper or baking parchment - so they don't stick.

    at least forty minutes. gives them a chance to go hard outside but they stay soft on the inside...

    If u dont have a mould u can use 2 spoons, with the mixture on one spoon. then just use the empty spoon to shape and scrap it off the other one. its a bit fiddly but just easing them from one spoon to the other makes them round in about 3 goes. thats how i was taught to make stuffing balls anyways lol.

    i couldnt help myself last night and made some as ive been truffleless for about a week. see what u've started nick???
    well i dont have any choc packs so i used cappuccino and the first one tasted a bit too strong but then they were yummy. will have to see how butterscotch goes when trufflified.

    anyways...i had used all my packs and cheated with with a fourth. do u think it will matter to my weight loss? also, given that one of yesterdays packs was a bar. i ended up having 3 packs and a bar. am i doomed? :cry:
