  1. Welcome to our annual Chocolate Delivery Service! This thread is always full of love and positivity and I'm sure this year will be no exception. For those of you that are new to this yearly tradition or have forgotten, here is what it's about and how you can participate. So basically this is a place to say your thank yous and tell the people of the Tower how much they mean to you and spread a little bit of joy! How? Simple. You PM me with a list of people that you want to thank with a message for them. You can let me know if you wish it to be anonymously or not. I will then post it in the thread with a picture of the most delightful chocolate treat - making the recipient feel happy and special! For example "Hey Blank, Can you tell randomtowercitizen that they're the bee's knees but don't let them know it was from me. Post what you want chocolate wise but I know they love mint chocolate! Thanks, randomtowercitizen2" Or of course, the message could be way less involved than that lol! And you can send as many as you like all over the course of the next week, ending Saturday the 16th. I look forward to hearing from you and make sure you keep checking the thread to see if anyone has posted anything nice for you 💌

    I tried to make mousse once it and went absolutely terribly. In fact, if we're being honest, I'm terrible at baking anything including chocolate haha

    Brown Ajah Chocolate week -Recipe thread.

    These have been on my to bake list for ages, I love love love scones Ingredients 700g/1lb 9oz self-raising flour 150g/5½oz butter 150g/5½oz caster sugar 2 large oranges, finely grated zest of both and juice of one orange 150g/5½oz chocolate drops 200ml/7fl oz whole milk, plus extra for brushing Preheat the oven to 210C/400F/Gas 6. Lightly butter two baking trays. Sift the flour into a bowl. Rub in the butter using your hands until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar, chocolate drops and orange zest. In a measuring jug, mix the milk with the juice of one orange. Add to the flour mixture gradually until the dough just comes together. You may not need all the liquid. Be careful not to overwork the scone dough. Roll out the dough to approximately 2cm/1in thickness and cut out scones using a 5-6cm/2-2½in cutter. Transfer the scones to the buttered baking trays, brush the tops with milk and bake in the centre of the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until risen and golden-brown. Remove from the oven and cool on wire rack. Serve with clotted cream and satsumas.
