FRIDAY PHOTO SCAVENGER HUNT - APRIL - Chocolate!!!!

 

Linking today with our new hostess Astrid at Dragon Stitches and Stuff.

Today we are kicking off April with chocolate.................it must be Easter, but today is also our wedding anniversary, though not much chocolate appears here these days via the bunny.  

Here we go and hopefully I've thought outside the box.  I did have visions of getting photos of a chocolate Bilby or Platypus, a couple of our confections that are truly Australian with money raised to care & protect our endangered species.  Never mind as I'm still joining in.

Playing with a selection of items featuring chocolate, being a cookbook, a quilt book, a bar of cooking chocolate, fabric with the words chocolate all over & an old tin saved from many years ago that had Old Baileys chocolates in it.  Looks good full of foliage & a camellia, which has just started flowering.

And homemade  Chocolate Orange Mousse, which has actually appeared on my blog before.  Not made it for a while, so may remedy that in the coming weeks.
Again I'm doing short and sweet, but enjoyed finding all my "CHOCOLATEY" bits which was part of the challenge for today.😏
I'm off to linkup now, and will pop into the other Hunter's blogs a little later tonight.  Thanks Astrid for taking this on.  Take care all, stay safe & hugs from down under.
Susan.

    1. Thanks M. The mousse is very tasty & the book it is made from is quite an age now. I've quite a few regular recipes that use cooking chocolate, so usually have some on hand.

    1. Thanks Carol. Funny how when I thought about it, I kept thinking of something else with a chocolate theme, even the fabric.

    1. Thanks Kate. The day passed in a bit of a blur, due to it being warmer than usual for this time of year. Reached 32 degrees.

    1. Thanks Carol. Going to be cooler here today (Sunday)too. Not sure what we'll be doing as we try & avoid doing much on public holidays to miss the crowds.

    2. I know what you mean about public holidays ... we always stay pretty close to home or a friends garden ... we aren’t keen on crowds either .... even pre-COVID πŸ˜ƒ
