Jam on Tarts

Jam on Tarts as one of our friends lovingly calls our Dolly's Glory Pineapple Tarts.

Simple to make but time consuming.

Had an order over the weekend and spent 6 hours making them starting from the dough to the kneading and shaping and of course, not forgetting the baking. Then the cooling period before arranging them into little bottles ready to be sold.

Total count:- 400 dainty little Dolly's Glory

Mention the word chocolate and we dream of melt-in-the-mouth chocolate, chocolate nut clusters, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate truffle, chocolate candy, chocolate fountain, fruits dipped in chocolate and tons more. Whatever it is, chocolate is irresistable to chocoholics, especially good quality chocolate.

Consider chocolate for a quick energy pick up. After heavy exercises and a tough workout, your body is crying out for nutrition. An easy, quick and reasonably priced way of fulfilling this need is to simply savor a piece of chocolate.

How do you show someone you love them? Do you buy them expensive gifts? Spend quality time together? Make personal sacrifices just to see them smile? Dedicate a song to them? Write a love letter or note of encouragement? Become their cheerleader? Those are wonderful things to do but have you thought about giving them chocolate?

Coming up, an easy and simple way of enjoying chocolate that you can make yourself or have a fun time doing with your kids.
