just. yes.

there are good ideas and then there are great ideas—

these are clearly in the latter category.

“Renowned for its indulgent blend of fresh, premium Irish dairy cream, the finest spirits, aged Irish whiskey and a unique chocolate blend, the iconic Bailey’s Original Irish Cream flavor profile pairs magically with rich, semi-sweet chocolate to create this decadent treat,” a  press release states. “Eat them by the handful on-the-go or mix into your favorite baked good recipe, these chips deliver on the flavor and smell of Bailey’s.”

 

“it’s delightful, it’s delicious, it’s de-lovely.”

yes

i made another attempt

at keeping the brownies

in the pan

for more than  

half an hour.

this time

as i was

tapping off

the

extra

powdered sugar

on top

almost all

of

the perfect batch

followed the sugar

right

into the trash

so

i brought what was left to the party

and

 had to call on

my wheel of cheese

for backup.

whipple-scrumptious fudgemallow delight

it’s almost easter – a great time to make wonka’s whipple-scrumptious fudgemallow delight with the chiddlers then?!

how to make a truly whipple-scrumptious sauce

for your ice cream sundae:

you will need:

an adult to help you
a saucepan
a large bowl of your favourite ice cream ready in the fridge
60g dark chocolate
1 cadbury’s crunchie or similar chocolate bar
60g butter
80g dark brown sugar
150ml double cream
8 marsmallows
what you need to do:

break the chocolate and the crunchie into large chunks

and set to one side.

in a saucepan, over a low heat, melt together

the butter, sugar and cream.

stir until all the sugar is dissolved.

turn the heat up and continue stirring for 10 minutes.

be careful, as it gets very hot and can splutter.

use a very long wooden spoon or a tall adult with a long arm.

turn the heat down again.

get your bowl of ice-cream from the fridge.

put the marshmallows, chocolate and crunchie into the saucepan,

stir around once and pour over your ice-cream.

met up with some friends for brunch.

waited a long time and caught up on stories.

looked forward to the mimosas and coffee and delicious savory crepes.

as last, they arrived at our table. 

but then. 

our dessert came.

1 minute later.

ice cream, sweet apple filling oozing, delicately wrapped in brown sugar.

tucked inside of the softest of doughs.

melting onto the plate.

we each had the same reaction at the same time.

threw down the gauntlet.

abandoned our food without a look back.

jumped into dessert. 

bliss. 

why we are friends.

we understand each other.

even when no words are spoken.

Absolutely eat dessert first. The thing that you want to do the most, do that.  – Joss Whedon
