February 14th again. The day for Lovers. Yes indeed it's that day again. It seems that the Valentines Day afternoon tea celebrations are popular this year. Also the Valentines Day party, where I'm sure an engagement or two will be announced.
I am one of those people who finds the whole affair rather commercial, Hallmark as it were. However that does not mean I don't indulge a little. Actually as I rather like fresh flowers and chocolate I treat myself to both, most days, not just Feb 14th, but don't tell anyone.
So today rather than explain what's on trend in the world of Interior Design I'm going to be a little indulgent and share with you a recipe for 'Irish Cream Chocolate shots' and some pictures representing a 'love' theme. Again my love of Flowers, Chocolate and Interior Design.
Irish Cream Chocolate Shots.
1/4 cup of cream
1Tbsp of strong black coffee
1Tbsp of Baileys
1/2 tsp of cornflour
Some extra cream for whipping
Pop all the ingredients into a pot on a low heat and whisk. Whisk constantly until all the chocolate melts and the mixture thickens. Do not allow to boil.
Pour the mixture into your cups and leave in your fridge to set for a couple of hours. Then top with cream and serve.
Treat Yourself and enjoy.
Now it's Valentines Day and these are some of the things I love.
