Cocoa Cami x The Make Pack

Whether we love it or hate it, we all know that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It is always difficult to choose the ideal present for that special somebody, and what better way to show how much you care than to make the extra effort of making something by hand. Today, I have the perfect gift idea to share with you for Valentine’s Day or a birthday, or even just give to somebody to show how much you care.
I was delighted to be contacted recently by a company called The Make Pack* to see if I would review one of their kits. The Make Pack is such an ingenious idea, the little kits they sell come with everything you need to make a certain food. In this case I selected the kit to make a chocolate truffle selection. (£9.95) I was so excited when I received the pack and I could not wait to see what was inside. The beautifully packaged little box contains dark and white chocolate buttons, peanut butter, peanuts, cocoa powder and light brown sugar. This provides all that you need to make delicious dark chocolate truffles as well as white chocolate and peanut butter ones. The Make Pack also stock chocolate boxes which come with cute string to tie around it and a gift tag, so that you can give the handmade truffles as a present. The instructions provided in the box were concise and clear, and all of the ingredients were individually packaged to and pre-weighed so that you would have enough of everything.



This time, I used everything provided to make the dark chocolate truffles as  thought I would make the white chocolate and peanut butter ones another day. They were easy to make and the only ingredient I needed to add was the double cream. I followed the step-by step instructions and in no time I had a box of chocolate truffles all dusted in Cocoa powder and ready to go! The whole process of making them was great fun and I would definitely order another Make Pack in the future. The only problem was that they looked so delicious when they were ready, that I might have accidentally eaten a few of them myself! I hope you like the title of this post, I could not resist making Coco into Cocoa in the circumstances ;) I know, I know...I am a born comic. 










There is a range of kits available on The Make Pack website, to make everything from Lemon Marshmallows with Toasted Coconut, to Triple Layer Chocolate Fudge Cake! Check out the selection here: http://www.themakepack.com/packs 
If you order now, the pack will arrive in plenty of time for Valentine's Day as The Make Pack delivers within 3-5 working days. Perfect to solve those pesky gift dilemmas! 

What do you guys think, would you like to try The Make Pack? Which one would you choose? I hope you are all well and having a fun weekend, thank you so much for reading this post. Remember I love to read your sweet comments and I follow back my followers.


Until next time,
