Enjoy National Chocolates Day!

Happy Wednesday! According to Foodimentary.com, today is National Chocolates Day! What chocolate are you nibbling on today? I am going to share my chocolate(s) that I am celebrating today, and that would be Butlers Chocolates. They are a favorite of mine! I even want to say this blog has some early roots in sharing the love of Butlers Chocolates in one of the first posts made here!

It’s true! I have bars hidden in my cupboards and I always forget that I stash them from the children. When I find a bar hidden amongst the items in my cupboards it’s like I have hit jackpot! And then… I hope… that a child is not near by when I make my discovery… because yes… I really don’t want to share! I’m so bad!

And do we all know that Butlers Chocolates originates from Ireland? So, really, I suppose I am celebrating “International” Chocolates Day!  Butlers Chocolates isn’t all chocolates, they make a variety of products:

In addition to luxurious milk, dark and white speciality chocolate assortments, Butlers Chocolates produce creamy toffee, soft fudge, deliciously moreish chocolate filled and solid chocolate bars, enticing milk chocolate truffles delicately flavoured with famous liquors, hot chocolate and enchanting seasonal collections at Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Easter!

Speaking of CHRISTMAS, these chocolates make awesome stocking stuffers, host and/or hostess gifts, or a perfect gift to pass around the office during the holiday season.

Have you tried Bulters Chocolates before? If so, tell me what your favorite! My inquiring mind wants to know!

Tasty Pumpkin Treats.

Welcome to October! Around this time of year, most everything is flavored PUMPKIN! Today’s post is a really tasty recipe that uses Kane Candy® White Chocolate Cordial & Toasting Cups. The recipe for today is White Chocolate Pumpkin Pots! They are easy to make and will not last long once they are ready and prepared for your guests! The recipe is posted below, but if you want to find an easy PDF file that you can quickly access and print, it can be found here on our website.

White Chocolate Pumpkin Pots

Ingredients:

  • Kane Candy White Chocolate Cordial & Toasting Cups
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 package vanilla instant pudding (we used French Vanilla)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup cold milk
  • 1 1/2 cups whipped cream, divided
  • 1//4 cup pecans

Steps:

  1. Beat pumpkin, dry pudding mix, pumpkin spice and milk in a large bowl with a wish for 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in 1 cup of whipped cream.
  3. Fill KaneCandy® cups with pumpkin mixture. (We used a pastry bag to fill the cups.)
  4. Refrigerate for one hour.
  5. Top with remaining whipped cream and nuts just before serving.

*Just a side note, on the pictures provided, due to time constraints, we did use whipped cream from a can for the topping and we forgot to add the pecans, but we did have someone visiting with a nut allergy. Better safe than sorry!

If you make these, I promise you, they will not last long! This recipe makes quite a bit of filling, so be sure to have more than one package of Kane Candy® chocolate cups! There is plenty of filling to fill more!
