Homemade chocolates and sweets
From classic homemade chocolate recipes like truffles to more unusual homemade sweets like candy floss, this round up is all about good old fashioned British sweet shop favourites, so there?s sure to be something everyone will like.
It's fun to make your own treats and your homemade versions will taste so much better than the original (and make a more thoughtful gift too). Make homemade Jaffa cakes or homemade chocolate digestives to get everyone talking. Or go for creamy vanilla fudge or rich chocolate peppermint slices as sweets to share.
These simple recipes make a lovely gift on a small budget. And the best thing about our chocolate and sweet treats is that they can be enjoyed all year round, from birthdays to Christmas. There's no need to stress for gift ideas when you can make these tasty bites - from white chocolate truffles to candy floss, we've got plenty of sweet recipes for you to try. All you need to do is buy is a gift bag or box to wrap the chocs in and you're ready to go. We like plain brown wrappers and parcel string to give them a really old fashioned feel that will make the lucky recipients feel nostalgic.
