as the snowfall arrives

there is a soft quiet

a world of white outside

while inside

 the cottage is filled with color

 i’m clearly drawn to whimsical animal art

and yes,

that is the wing of a  peacock kite you see in the upper left corner.

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.
