Chocolate Top Hats and Mr. Thornton

Reading this post requires skill. You need the ability to shapeshift images.

Not werewolf to human or anything drastic, but brown blob into recognizable chocolate shape.

If you tilt your head to the side and squint.

Ready?

May I present a chocolate top hat:

I made these babies to keep me company during the global North and South watch after seeing this picture of Mr. Thornton while rereading Nicole’s gp.

After some hardcore googling, I found a simple-sounding recipe from Sweet Simple Stuff (aptly titled, that), bought the ingredients, headed to the kitchen, and promptly burned chocolate.

I had to call in reinforcements.

Of course, the chocolate came out fine when he put it in. Hmph.

Minor hiccup aside, I labored onward and came up with chocolate goodness.

I’ve tried one (What? I couldn’t help myself) and it was pretty good! I think I’ll let them sit outside the fridge for a couple of minutes before biting into the next one, though.

 

I know John Thornton’s top hat doesn’t include white glitter, but a little creative license is acceptable.

After all, it’s a party!

    These are adorable! Though yes, you kind of have to tilt your head and squint to get the full picture. :P

    I can imagine that’s almost too much sweetness for me though! I’d probably eat ten and then be groaning the rest of the day…

    Are these treats supposed to look like his hat? That’s what I took it as…lol…Yum! Your comment about the movie, Battleship, isn’t showing up on my blog, but I see it in my email…Darn that blogger! Yes. Rhianna was in it, but she wasn’t even close to being a star…I don’t know why they bothered to include her. She did have one very significant scene, though.Thanks for dropping by :-) Hope your weekend went well.
