yup that would be me, too

What are they made from? They look nasty but then I am not a dessert person.

But can you polish off a whole box of 12 of those Thorntons miniature caramel and chocolate shortbreads in under 5 minutes? I can. <polished nails on lapel>

Ok, I feel sick afterwards, granted. But it's worth it.

BoysAreLikeDogs Sat 18-Dec-10 09:58:58

ooh Fellatio, that is VAIR impressive noshing

FellatioNelson Sat 18-Dec-10 10:05:33

Yes, it is. <proud>

I try not to do it on a daily basis, obviously. blush

But if I'm having a deranged pre-menstrual day where I start to turn into the Incredible Hulk if I don't get my hands on some serious carbs, pronto, they are my drug of choice. grin

I ate a whole box of liqueur chocs last night in my pisssdoffness - took me about 8 minutes.

Did I feel better?

No. sad

To add insult to injury they still had the raffle ticket on them from the school Christmas Fayre.

<<classy>>

Dessert sandwiches????

confused

Oh Fellatio. I LOVE those caramel shortbreads. I too can eat them very very fast.

FellatioNelson Sat 18-Dec-10 10:47:31

The key to their addictiveness is the way they taste really salty, yet sweet.

OK, need to stop talking about them now. Have put (back) on five pounds in recent weeks and am in danger of all my new 'slim' clothes not fitting anymore.

Ah I have recipe for salted caramel trifle. Basically it's sponge, brandied apricots, salted condensed milk toffee and then double cream.

If I ever get to shops to get food ( order was cancelled here due to weather) then I am making it and then hiding in a cupboard and eating it ALL. grin

ChristmasTrolleyRage Sat 18-Dec-10 10:54:34

Please post recipe trumps.

I am looking for an easy Boxing Day menu.

FellatioNelson Sat 18-Dec-10 10:55:02

That sounds like the kind of thing I would make, and then be forced to eat it all, to destroy the evidence that I made it in the first place, but sadly ate two thirds of it before anyone else came home. grin

I did that with a whole cake once when I was pregnant. I know. It's really not good. This is why I tend not to make puddings or cakes or bread.

BelligerentYhoULE Sat 18-Dec-10 12:17:04

Trumps - please, please, please post your recipe. I love salted caramel.

Don't fancy the M&S thingies - am often disappointed by M&S cakes which are all sugar over substance imho. Love those Thorntons caramel squares though and could easily polish off a packet in less than ten minutes - and want another one!

Iwasthefourthwiseman Sat 18-Dec-10 12:26:44

oooh yes to the thornton's squares, yum!

FellatioNelson Sat 18-Dec-10 14:30:41

I think if you took them all out of the packaging and laid them in four rows of three they wouldn't be any bigger than one and a half standard squares of caramel shortbread. That's my theory and I shall continue with it.

And yes, hurry up with that recipe - I need a good dessert to supplement Christmas pud!

BelligerentYhoULE Sat 18-Dec-10 14:43:09

Have just found this

FellatioNelson Sat 18-Dec-10 14:50:08

Thank you. I could kiss you. I've just been asking DH what pudding I could make that will be easy and the kids will like but still special and Christmassy. That's perfect!

PartridgeinaRustyBearTree Sat 18-Dec-10 14:55:50

Oddly enough I just sat down with a pack of Thornton's caramel shortcakes and MN on the iPad - not a bad way to spend a snowy Saturday afternoon...
I have eaten two in the time it took to read this thread, but I still have enough left to test Fellatio's theory about their combined size.

Of course, once they are out of the packet, I will have to eat them, won't I? Can't just leave them lying around.....

electra Sat 18-Dec-10 15:00:09

What are dessert sandwiches? I haven't seen these yet.....

FellatioNelson Sat 18-Dec-10 15:01:44

If they add to up to more than one and half full sized portions please don't tell me - I prefer to live in fat greedy ignorant bliss.

PartridgeinaRustyBearTree Sat 18-Dec-10 15:04:19

OK, so 4 Thornton's mini caramel shortcakes make a 2.5" (6cm) square, which I'd guess is about the size of a standard caramel shortbread square. So a pack would equal 3 standard size, not 1.5.

Sorry about that Fellatio, but if you want to keep your illusions, you can always ask MN to delete this post...

PartridgeinaRustyBearTree Sat 18-Dec-10 15:04:53

Oh, sorry x- post there...

FellatioNelson Sat 18-Dec-10 15:08:58

angry I wonder if it would be possible to incorporate them into the salted caramel trifle? Perhaps by chilling them to harden the caramel, then putting them in the blender to make crumbs, then sprinkling them on top? Hmmm...
