Sometimes your heart simply melts…

Today I received a very special gift. Our “little” girl came home with a very special father’s day gift. The day itself is tomorrow, but as we will be visiting our own dads, she insisted on already giving it to me.

And what a surprise it was! She offered me a golden star-shaped box she had secretly hidden in the fridge.

The fragile box contained four delicate, self-made pralines. She knows how fond I am of chocolate and the twinkle in her eyes and the amazing smile on her face melted my heart right away. No other chocolate will ever come close to this feeling!

Where to get it? Nowhere, it’s a one of a kind box.

How much does it cost? It’s priceless.

The pralines:

One muslibar piece enrobed with milk chocolate and crowned with an almond. It bore a remarkable resemblance to Nestlé’s Lion candy bar. Wich I always loved.

One dark chocolate ball covered in coconut flakes.

One rice krispie’s ball covered in milk chocolate, actually very nice and crunchy.

And to top it of, a soft home-made meringue piece, dipped in sweet milk chocolate.


I don’t think I’ll ever experience this again in my chocolate life: the surprise, the excitement and the really nice flavors.

Sharing these pralines with mommy and her made for a moment I’ll cherish for the rest of my life…


Thanks again Renée, you are the best. 🙂
