Find a new hobby

The time after a breakup can be full of new and exciting opportunities. Instead of staying at home feeling sad, do something with the extra time you have. Start a new book, get a gym membership, find a new coffee spot that you love. As long as you find something that you love doing, you're heading in the right direction. Once the pain of the breakup subsides, you will have a hobby that you feel invested in because it's something that you are doing just for you. Find a new hobby

Add 65 grams of bittersweet melted chocolate or 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder and start stirring the mixture at low heat. Add half a teaspoon of vanilla extract or 5 drops of rose water. Keep stirring until small bubbles form at the sides of the saucepan. Now add the cornstarch mixture and stir. After a good stir when the cornstarch mixture is well combined, remove from heat.

If it is not thick, mix another tablespoon of cornstarch with some water in a bowl and add it to the saucepan. Whisk well on low heat and remove from heat quickly when the mixture thickens.

Transfer the mixture to a bowl and place in the refrigerator to cool. It will thicken further when chilled. Fill a piping bag and frost the cake or brownies as desired.
