Here's the recipe:
250g plain chocolate
95g unsalted butter
95g ginger biscuits
chopped walnuts (optional)
Just melt the chocolate and butter together in a bowl over hot water, add the whisky, crush the biscuits in a plastic bag with a rolling pin and mix everything together!
Put the mixture in the fridge for a couple of hours before rolling small pieces into balls and dipping in cocoa powder. I also rolled some in icing sugar and chopped walnuts.
Keep them in the fridge.

Going back to DD - I've bought her a box of make up for Christmas from ASOS. Its in the most gorgeous box with lots of little pull-out drawers. When you open it it plays music and there's a little twirling dancer inside! You may be thinking how old is she.....(she's 25 - but it's ok because she asked if she could have it.) Isn't it cute?
I had a horrible day yesterday......certain things were getting to me and I felt like I was sinking into a depression; I couldn't do any artwork or settle to anything. But thankfully today is better.....I've got carols playing in the background, I've wrapped most of the presents and tonight I'm going out with DH for a pizza, then a film (Quantum of Solace). I'm trying to be positive and thankful for everything good in my life. Why do we let Christmas get us down? Its supposed to be joyful, which is where I came in...........
Merry Christmas Everyone!
(This is my conservatory. Sorry it's a bit blurry but you have to hold the camera really still when it's dark and I'd probably had a couple of Chardonnays.....................)

For the background I used Broken China Distress Ink Pad and splattered it with white acrylic paint.
