Chocolates with the Midas touch



Here at HIBS100 we’ve long been fans of Mike Ahern’s polished website Brit Decor, with its cunning mix of restraint and luxury. This recipe for Midas touch chocolates exemplifies Mike’s approach – it’s simple, delicious and we are not even going to try to resist it. Bet you won’t either. Enjoy.

“I picked up some chocolate moulds, two 200g bars of Belgian dark chocolate and one bar of white to create a marbled effect, plus a single Crunchie bar. I also ordered some edible gold leaf sheets online, and was ready to go into meltdown (in the chocolatey sense).  Once cooled, I removed the chocs from the mould and carefully placed the gold leaf to complete the look.”

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
