Nectar & Stone Inspired Chocolates

If you haven’t heard of Nectar and Stone, the chances are that you aren’t on Instagram. If you are, I am almost 100% sure that you will have seen their amazing chocolates and sweet treats beautifying your feed. The wonderful lady behind the Nectar and Stone Instagram creates the most beautiful looking chocolates, cookies, cakes and more for big events and for her own online boutique store. She has a background in fashion and this shines through with the minimalistic yet stunning designs in her baking. Apparently everything that she makes tastes delicious too but as she is based in Australia, I haven’t been able to try anything (much to my dismay).

As I probably won’t ever be able to buy anything from Nectar and Stone myself, I thought I would try my hand at making some chocolates inspired by their designs. It was actually really easy, all I did was melt down white chocolate and colour it with different shades of pink. I poured different layers of the coloured chocolate into a silicone pyramid mould and sprinkled in some crushed oreos for the monochrome effect. When I popped these pretties out of the mould, I was really surprised and pleased with how they turned out. All I did to finish them off was apply a small smattering of gold leaf to the top of each pyramid. Don’t get me wrong, I know they are no Nectar and Stone chocolates (see the first two photos for my attempt and the last photo for a comparison to the real thing) but they do look lovely and weren’t hard to make at all. They are the most original and stylish chocolates that I have ever seen, and next time I make them I will be packing them up in nice boxes and giving them as gifts to my friends.
