    Happy birthday to you! I bet that the bars will come in handy for the sugar boosts you might be needing with Little Missy ;-)I was kinda wondering what do do with my leftover 100% chocolate. So I will use it ‘like salt’ at the weekend and see how it goes. Thanks for the tip.Harvey Nics, Dundrum Town Centre are stocking it too.

    I always find that some dark chocolate always helps to make every situation better! As Little Missy was born just before Easter with all the chocolate that implies (I spent a lot of that holiday sitting on the couch, feeding the child, and demanding to be kept supplied with the best chocolate in the house), she ended up with smears of it all over her babygros, not to mention, ahem, “interesting” nappies. I don’t think that the Chief Nappy-Changer, aka the Husband, was too impressed!

    Belated Happy Birthday Caroline and even more belated congratulations on the birth of your beautiful baby girl. I really enjoyed the Willie’s chocolate series too (and his slightly bonkers family!)and I have the cookbook so thanks for the tip on finding the chocolate at The English Market. Next time I’m down I’ll stock up!

    Thanks Laura – and welcome back! I should be in Cork over the next week so let me know if you’d like me to pick up a couple of bars to send up to you. I think that the Chocolate Shop also do mailorder, just give them a call to check.
