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 large bowl of your favourite ice cream ready in the fridge
60g dark chocolate
1 cadbury’s crunchie or similar chocolate bar
80g dark brown sugar
150ml double cream
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.
