Homemade chocolate pods

I am such a lousy blogger! I said last week I would share my homemade pod receipe after I made them on the weekend and I forgot to take piccies. So unfortunately you will have to use your imagination and hopefully the ingredients themselves will be enough to entice you.
"Homemade chocolate pods"
1. Take three sheets of shortbread pastry crusts. Using a muffin/patty cake tin mold the pastry into little cups. Than bake in the oven for 10 -15 minutes until golden brown. Take out and let cool.
2. Melt a block of chocolate in the microwave for 2 minutes and than fill the pods half way up with chocolate
3. Either make caramel or cheat like I do and buy the already made caramel by Nestle and fill the pod up to the top.
4. Than thinly slice your favourite fruit and place on top on the caramel. My favourites are bananna, kiwi fruit or strawberries.
5. Than whip up some thickened cream and place on top of fruit.
6. Than crush a flake and sprinkle on top.
7. Eat them all up. There best served straight away but can be made a couple of hours in advance, the chocolate just goes a bit hard. This receipe makes about 18 pods.

Once again sorry for the lack of photos but trust me these are delicous!!


  1. OMG stoppppppp I am on a low gi diet for health reasons and no chocolate or sugar for me. I am drooling all over my desk right now.

  2. That sounds SO amazing! Yum chocolate and caramel and banana and cream?? I am so making these! :)

  3. Heh, they do sound yummy really! If i were to slice some fruits in, it gotta be bananas or kiwis too!

  4. Hmmm sounds so good! Although I may not have the cream...for some reason I really don't like cream! x
