What Is It ? Take a Closer Look

It's a unique and special treat.
It was created this week,
but its origins are at least vintage, perhaps antique.

Do take a closer look, by clicking on these photos.

It was presented to me this morning, as a gift for my
6 year wedding anniversary. Mr. T is a guy who goes by the book.
The book (???) says the correct present for the 6th anniversary
is either steel or candy.

It's not steel.

It's deliciously edible ... . handmade chocolate,
brushed with sterling silver leaf - also edible.
Some of you many remember a Valentines post
which featured a 24 K Gold chocolate heart.

My favorite local chocolatier, Hayward Simoneaux
at Todos Santos, makes these small treasures
using his collection of old chocolate molds.
Click HERE to see more examples of his
wondrous talent.

Know that I'm sending you all a "cyber bite."
Enjoy.

Happy, happy anniversary!

That is an exquisite treasure - I would never be able to eat it LOL.

One of my favorite candies are from upstate New York. They're called Turkey Joints - they're chocolate turkey leg bones covered in edible silver or gold.

Again, happy anniversary - hope it was wonderful and memorable.

Tristan ... . I must see pics of those Turkey Joints- I'm having a hard time visualizing them!

Happy Anniversary Judith! Yumm that cyber bite was good, and leaves me craving for the real thing!

Did you know? A lot of Indian sweet makers use edible silver on their sweets for that extra look of richness:) it is called 'varq' in India.

Happy Holidays!

Lotsa love
