It is quite funny that he gave me with chocolate, sorry for those who do not like chocolate but it's like Christmas.

Anyway , I had looking in books and  magazines in  different languages when I found these little cakes and caught my attention the recipe of  honey and chocolate which I found novel and not only  fruits go with  spices that really I love .I can comment is a different Christmas cake and really good!

En español
cakes de chocolate y especias






Estos cakes son una maravilla y no es porque los haga yo, :) es sólo porque el olor cuando se cocinaban era absolutamente maravilloso, como un olor a Navidad.
La mezcla de especias y chocolate es deliciosa.
