Hi, i have 1/2 jar of very old Waitrose seriously chocolately chocolate spread in my fridge- no one liked it much (Nutella so much nicer IMHO). Its dark chocolate and there's around 150g left. I want to turn it into a filling or icing for a chocolate fudge cake this weekend. The spread is made of dark choc, glucose, sugar syrup , cream and cocoa. The only thing i can think of it to treat it like chocolate and make a ganache. The spread is solid in the fridge but can be warmed to become liquid- it made a nice sauce to go over vanilla icecream. Or I could warm it and then just beat in some whipped cream. Anyone got any good ideas?? Thanks in advance for suggestions.
I've done this before for a birthday cake for DD - I was ill & struggling to do my usual big effort/standard of icing/decorating & it hit a point where I realised if I didn't improvise, on top of everything else I had to do for that afternoons party - she wasn't going to have a cake
So I dug it a jar of chocolate spread & a box of chocolate crisp things & covered the middle & the whole of the outside of cake with chocolate spread, stuck the crisps around the edge to form a sort of wall, crumbled up a load more chocolate crisps & sprinkled over the centre of the cake - finished off with edible gold sparkle dust & mini white & dark chocolate stars - it took me all of 10 minutes & it disappeared so quickly neither DH or I had any -
the verdict from DD & her friends - the best cake I had ever made - so YES - it's will work
thanks for the suggestions. I think i will go for the artery hardener as it's along the lines of what I was hoping i could do with it. rockinhippy don't you love it when something so easy gets so appreciated?
