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.
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.
Stir in the chopped up marshmallows and eggs (quickly because they will start to melt)
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…
Try not to eat it all at once!!
So, my lovelies, what sweet treats are you going to be eating this easter?
