When I noticed a tweet and missed call from Navi this afternoon, she told me she had dropped by with a gift but ended up leaving it at my front door. Turns out she was my Twitter Secret Santa and hoped it would still be ok by the time I came home. It reached a high of 32°C which is 90°F so I was thinking it must be either cupcakes or chocolate which would surely perish in this heat.
I ended up thinking about my gift for the next couple of hours as the heat continued to soar. Nav said she placed it in the shade so I figured I could shoot home just after dessert. As soon I saw the package, I knew what it was. I haven’t had Haigh’s chocolate since my last contract in the city so it was a nice surprise from my #TSS.
This is what they were supposed to look like.
Gold Star Tin with Milk Hearts
8 milk chocolate foiled hearts in gold star tin.
A delicious coffee fudge with a creamy topping enrobed in milk chocolate.
They were still in pretty good shape but the cappuccino bars needed saving – stat!
After 6hrs in the fridge, one question remained. Were they as good as I remember?
In a word – YES!
Thanks to Nav for the yummy present and Obsidian_Dragon for organising the event.
