Week 9 - Chocolate Sweet Selection *Shopping list*

Im so looking forward to this one, who doesnt love sweets!! :) This is the first of our sweet selection, in a few weeks we will be making less chocolate based ones but for now with Mothers Day and Easter around the corner i thought chocolate was a good start point :)

There are 3 seperate sweets so 3 little shopping lists. I would have lumped it all together but at least this way you know what is needed for what and make sure you dont forget the little SWEET PETIT FOUR CASES!! You can get these at the supermarkets or the likes of Julian Graves etc.
