On Saturday afternoon 6-20-2009 I attended a Central Florida Nestie (http://www.thenest.com) get together at Farris and Foster's
Farris and Foster's was a chocolate wonderland! I felt like I was in the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. For a fee you are allowed to make a pound of various chocolate goodies. You can use various molds to make lolipops.They have a huge wall full of molds. Truffles can also be made. F&F offers three types of chocolate to work with dark, milk, and white. I was very curious about the quality of the chocolate but let me tell you it was to die for. I ate a ton of the candy that I made in the first night. Here are pictures of some of the amazing goodies that I made. If anyone ever wants to go I would be more than happy to join you!
Since it was the day before Father's Day I decided to make this milk chocolate hockey skate for my husband. He is quite the talented skater!
My husband also loves chocolate covered pretzels. This is covered with mini M&M's. At F&F there is a conveyor belt and the items you place on it are brought through a waterfall of dark chocolate.
My husband is a computer nerd so this lolipop was very appropriate. It is made out of dark chocolate.
My husband is a huge fan of Rice Krispy Treats. I figured he would really enjoy one covered in dark chocolate. It doesn't look as nice after being transported home in the Florida heat. I think next time it would be a great idea to take a picture of the things I make while I am there.
You can also dip your own strawberries. They are provided for you. F&F provides a large assortment of items for dipping.
My husband loves peanut butter filled pretzels so I made these for him dipped in dark chocolate.
