I’ve had something weighing on my mind recently. Weighing exactly 2.5 kg.
Holy moly. This was one giant packet of chocolate. I bought this in anticipation of Easter. Apparently Easter is really close to Christmas. At least, thats what I surmised after seeing the shops inundated with easter eggs mere weeks after Christmas.
I’m a sucker for the chocolate marshmallow eggs, strawberry cream eggs and turkish delight eggs
However, obsessions aside, I do have to conceed that it is way too early to be eating easter eggs. Boo! So I had to come up with a way to incorporate them into a less ‘holiday’ and more ‘everyday’ food. It had to be rich, it had to be chocoaltey…
So simple, all you need is 350g dark chocolate, 397g condensed milk, 30g butter, a pinch of salt and as many easter eggs/marshmallows as you think you might need. (The original recipe calls for 150g pistachios, but thats pretty boring…)
All you need to do is melt the chocolate, condensed milk, butter and salt in a heavy based saucepan on a low heat.
Try not to eat it at this point. Try…
Stir in the chopped up marshmallows and eggs (quickly because they will start to melt)
and pour the mixture into a tin lined with baking paper (to ensure easy removal!)
Leave to set in the fridge
And did you see the fruit in the fridge? Beside the butter and tim tams?
See, I DO eat normal food. Kind sorta maybe…
Once it is all set, remove from the tin and cut into eatable squares.
Try not to eat it all at once!!
So, my lovelies, what sweet treats are you going to be eating this easter?
