What shall I do with it??

ChippyMinton Tue 17-Sep-13 19:02:27

Have you got any ice cream cones?

nannycook Tue 17-Sep-13 19:15:49

Rice krispie cakes? Or is it too runny to do that with?

DoItTooJulia Tue 17-Sep-13 19:28:59

No ice cream cones, but see where you're going with that one...great idea!

It's remarkably thick, not runny at all.

I'm just worried I'm going to eat it all straight out of the bowl if I don't find a proper use for it! As it is we have the tea cakes primed and ready for the bake off!

DoItTooJulia Tue 17-Sep-13 19:29:58

Wanna see a picture of them? (The tea cakes that is!)

BeaWheesht Tue 17-Sep-13 19:31:17

What? You made your own tunnocks style tea cakes? With soft creamy marshmallow filling?? Not wobbly wobbly marshmallow stuff like in cheap ones?? How???

I'd have it in brandy snap baskets!

I was going to suggest a bowl and a spoon!

Wolfcub Tue 17-Sep-13 19:34:19

take a spoon, curl up in front of GBB and scoff

DoItTooJulia Tue 17-Sep-13 19:34:22

Yes and I'm so pleased with them ( and myself I might add!)

nannycook Tue 17-Sep-13 19:37:17

Do tell how on earth did you make those? What one now please.

nannycook Tue 17-Sep-13 19:38:31

Want even.

DoItTooJulia Tue 17-Sep-13 19:40:11

You know what? They were quite easy! I bought the moulds from lakeland and followed the recipe inside. But basically you coat the mould with melted chocolate, make biscuits that you coat with the chocolate and make the marsh mellow by whipping egg white over a Bain Marie. You add vanilla, sugar and golden syrup.

Then assemble using more melted choc as glue.

Et voila!

BeaWheesht Tue 17-Sep-13 19:51:56

Wow I'm impressed, both at your baking skills and the fact you have put a picture on a post, didnt know that was possible!

nannycook Tue 17-Sep-13 20:01:22

Well all thats missing are the red wrappers. Impressive.

DoItTooJulia Tue 17-Sep-13 20:02:39

Ah, thanks all.

It's nice when someone other than my family tell me they're ok!

SprinkleLiberally Tue 17-Sep-13 20:04:04

But how much did they end up costing? Most expensive teacakes on earth! Beautiful though grin

DoItTooJulia Tue 17-Sep-13 20:12:39

Not too much as it goes.

My dad brings us chocolate very week, so I have a free glut. I have chickens, so got the eggs free (ish)

The biscuits used a tiny amount of ingredients as I only had to make 6.

I reckon they cost a shade more than tunnocks. I will let you know if it was worth the extra dosh!

SprinkleLiberally Tue 17-Sep-13 20:17:03

Excellent. Look v good. Of course now I want one...

DoItTooJulia Tue 17-Sep-13 20:33:34

O.M.G. They tasted great! My 8 year old son is in heaven!

nannycook Tue 17-Sep-13 21:02:27

That is so unfair when you know we cant have one, shame on you doit.

DoItTooJulia Tue 17-Sep-13 21:08:47

Sorry, sorry.

If I could send you one, I would!

nannycook Tue 17-Sep-13 21:36:07

Well thats better, at least the thought was there, you back in my good books now.

Edendance Tue 17-Sep-13 21:48:44


So glad you got on well with that mould- I was considering buying it buy haven't yet... I may have to give in they look great!! You could always make some of those marshmallowy things covered in choc and desicated coconut, theyre one of my faves.

DoItTooJulia Tue 17-Sep-13 21:58:59

I tried to get the mould last year, but it was in production.

I bought it a while ago, but didn't have the chance to make them until now. The mould is great and the recipe included. I'm really pleased with it.

They look delicious - if you've got an ice cream male you could try knocking up some homemade Ben and Jerry's phish food?
