The Twelve Days of Chocmas (Day Twelve)

We’ve made it! Today brings us to day twelve, and therefore the conclusion of Chocmas … I hope you’ve enjoyed this little diversion over the festive season, I’ve certainly enjoyed chatting with you all about one of my great loves … chocolate!

On the twelfth day of Chocmas,

my true love sent to me

Twelve orange chocolates,

Eleven coloured smarties,

Ten dinner mints,

Nine choc maltesers,

Eight choc mint balls,

Seven m & m’s,

Six chocolate peanuts,

Five giant buttons,

Four choc rochers,

Three lindt balls,

Two golden roughs,

And a tasty minted pattie!

Orange and chocolate. I don’t know why they work so well together, but they just do. While I’d normally go for Jaffas, they were nowhere to be found over Christmas – so these are ‘orange chocolate balls’ from Darrell Lea (an Australian chocolate shop). Whatever they’re called, and whoever makes them … orange chocolate treats are always enjoyable.

Before you go, here’s a little re-cap of the entire ‘Twelve Days of Chocmas’ journey … my oh my, that’s a lot of chocolate! Don’t worry though, all these little chocolates found themselves a very good home.

Thanks so much for coming along on my chocolate festival – regular blogging will resume from tomorrow … and that’s quite a relief really, because I think I need some distance from chocolate (at least for a little while).

    If you’d like to send the leftover chocolate that you’re distancing yourself from, I could handle it. 🙂

      Hi Jan – Haha … oh my, if I could I would certainly send some chocolate your way … however I can’t honestly say quite how much chocolate is in fact ‘left over’ … 😉

    I think I have gained weight just reading you posts. But it was woth it. Choco is my best friend, I can’t really have enough of it.

      Hi Bobbi – Haha … at least you only ‘virtually’ gained weight reading about chocolate … think about ‘poor’ me who had to do all the actual eating! 😉
      Chocolate is my best friend too … I’ve come to realise that life is too short to ignore such lovely and loyal friends as that! 🙂

    I’ve enjoyed this SO much, haha. Congratulations Tracey… you’re a complete star for making these last 12 days so thoroughly *right* 🙂 (apart from the Ferrero Rocher thing but I won’t mention it again, nuhuh, I promise ;))

      Hi Kiersty – I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed my little Chocmas extravaganza! (I loved putting it together and I’m so glad it’s been so much fun).
      Haha … I don’t think you’ll ever really forgive me for that Ferrero Rocher incident … maybe I’ll have to make it up to you with some REAL chocolate one day! 😉

    I loved your chocmas series Tracey – thank you 🙂 Chocolate and orange are best friends, as Jamie Oliver would say.

      Hi Gabrielle – I’m so happy you enjoyed my Chocmas series … I think it was a bit of fun for me to do rather than stop blogging altogether over the festive period … it was a lovely distraction (and chocolate indulgence).
      Jamie Oliver does have a wonderful way with words (let alone some of those delicious meals he cooks up!).

    They look fab all together like that 🙂 I’m reading these in reverse though, there are several I don’t recognise – looking forward to finding out what they are!!

    Can you get chocolate oranges at all? It’s chocolate infused with orange oil, and it’s rather lovely 🙂
