CT: Box of Chocolates


I was once given a box of chocolates made by Teuscher
oh yum - they are so very good! 

the box was a jester 
and his body was full of 
champagne truffles!
such unique packaging!


I always wanted to paint the container
theme
was the perfect inspiration to do so!

    1. I am so glad you understand now. I think i did not find the chocolate for a few minutes after it was given to me ;-). They were amazing and this jester has a porcelain face, quite special. Thank you for being our host!
