Sweets from my new recipe book SWEETS MADE SIMPLE by HOPE & GREENWOOD

    I'm loving this book so chuffed mine look like the ones in the book, and I have learnt how to temper chocolate this morning, makes such a difference.
    This morning I have made coffee walnut whips, coconut creams, instead of putting the coffee in I put some Crème au lait noix de coco found in Lidl last week so delicious, and last but not least I put some cherries from our tree into brandy in the summer and they are well and truly soaked, just cut them in half and de pipped then dipped in some Lindt red pepper chocolate found in Intermarche and the moulds were from Baboo and cost just 1euro each
    These are so simple takes minutes to make and are so yummy and they come from The English Kitchen so thank you Marie once again this lady is amazing with her recipes, I think I use Marie's blog more than my cook books here is the recipe Nutella Cookies http://theenglishkitchen.blogspot.fr/…/nutella-cookies-only…
