I mentioned our sweet pot last week when I gloated about Rachel’s very generous giveaway. This little sweet red pot was gifted to us by my mother and I love it, with its adorable chicken lid handle. She would probably keel over if she knew how we were using it though... I guess she anticipated we might use it for dips perhaps, and it has indeed been used for homemade salsa in the past. But that doesn’t happen very often and I thought of it to house our much loved French caramels, brought back from Isigny-sur-Mer caramel factory, the greatest caramels in the land I tell ye.
And since the caramels are fast disappearing, Rachel’s little chocolate eggs are finding themselves quite at home there. Who are we to argue? I’m only wondering what I’m going to replace them with once they’ve disappeared to the land of tummies… Any recipes out there you can think of for sweets or really tiny little nibbles?
