Yes - my vision of the enchanted forest was in a pan of chocolate sauce!
I was astounded when I noticed it - my companions were highly amused ...
So, the next time you are in a kitchen - behold! There may be a whole world of mystery beyond the culinary delights ...
Thank you everyone for your comments and suggestions!
(NB: For those who are interested in Photoshop, I straightened up the curve of the pan on the first picture, and on both the images darkened the colours using the adjust highlights feature.)
