Just in time for Valentine's Day, Matt and Mary have made a series of limited edition chocolate bars.    They come wrapped in marbleized papers that Mary made herself.  She used the marbleizing instructions that we have online.  I am particularly fond of marbleizing because it is one of those techniques where the results will completely surprise you.  It is part skill and part chance.  Try as hard as you can - it  is nearly impossible to achieve the same results twice.  Below are some images from our  marbleizing story.

  • The marbling looks awesome- what a great idea for Valentine's Day!

  • Very pretty, I've always admired the marbleized covers of books.

  • Isn't it forever lovely to mix hearts and chocolate! The presentation is very chic and original. Quite an inspiration to start us crafting and cooking. Thank you! Anything that comes from any of Martha's presentations is worth the time we spend enjoying and learning from her and her wonderful team of skilled staff. I am in Australia, but I would gladly go to work with Martha any time! Greetings from downunder!

  • Mmm, this is such a yummy idea!
