Traditional Sweets to Try at Home


For me there is nothing more rewarding that making sweets at home, I feel that things taste better, are more fresh and overall more yummy, you have also more control on your taste and choice of ingredients, you can choose higher quality chocolate, instead of the cheapest or “good enough” chocolate that a lot of already made sweets use.

Also, you tend to use less preservatives, and you can customize to your taste, if you don’t like things super sweet you can and should cut on the sugar, making it at home is always best hehehe, so here are some of my recommendations of sweets you can and maybe should try at home!
