Quick post because it’s late! I met some friends for wine and book club after school. Wine and book clubs=two of my favorite things. I was in book club in high school, but there was no wine.
We made sour cherry pate de fruit today. Something tells me this is going to be my favorite flavor. I hope it’s tart.
We also made chocolate nougat; basically it was the same recipe as yesterday, with cocoa paste mixed in. Do you see the paper we used to line the pans? We also pressed it on top of the nougat. It’s edible paper made from potato! The paper makes nougat easier to slice since it’s so sticky.
We also made a raspberry gum candy which we filled into a mold using a sauce gun. Aww little hearts! Isn’t that sweet?
Here’s the raspberry pate de fruit we made yesterday. The ladies of book club seemed to like this.
Here’s our sliced nougat.
Plus the wrapped chocolate caramels we made yesterday. They turned out!
They tasted like Tootsie Rolls x a thousand times better.
Until we meet again…
