Impressive biscuits/hand held pudding

(19 Posts)

We're having a BBQ for DH's 40th birthday soon.

I'm trying to think of a nice pudding that doesn't require plates or bowls as there will be lots of people.

So far chocolate brownies or American style cookies with condensed milk are my only ideas.

Strawberries/other fruits dipped in chocolate?

LiliesAndChocolate Sat 01-Jun-19 20:27:33

I make these biscuits:
300 flour
150 butter (melted)
150 sugar
1 egg, 1 yolk,

Mix well, put 30 min in fridge. Preheat oven fan forced 180 . Place baking sheet on oven tray.

Then cut a big chunk and roll it between 2 baking sheets. With an egg holder or shot glass - or biscuit cutter - cut the biscuit and put on tray and repeat until all cut.

In the oven for 5 min approxi. As soon as they turn gold, or when a slight brown colour appears on the edge, remove, place on plate and sprinkle icing sugar. They will harden the second they are out of oven.

Sometimes I put jam in between two or honey, but the plain simple ones are a big favourite.
It was the base of a cake I wanted to do, but I had leftover dough so just cut into biscuit and everyone loved them.

This is also super easy www.pinterest.com.au/pin/84583299223270351/ and looks very nice but with breadstick, not pretzel.

Chocolate dipped strawberries are also nice. Strawberries must be very dry, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the chocolate chips you melt over a simmering pot. Dip the strawberries , put on a tray with baking paper, let cool and then if you want you can melt some white choloate and make some shapes on top.

Auntie’s Chocolate Biscuit Cake
8oz crushed digestive biscuits
6 oz marg/butter
1& ½ desert spoons caster sugar
1& ½ desert spoons golden syrup
4& ½ desert spoons drinking chocolate powder
Cadbury’s dairy milk (large bar about 8oz)

Melt butter, syrup and drinking chocolate.
Add the biscuits.
Put mixture into a cake tin (about 8” diameter or a bit bigger) level it out and press it down.
Melt the dairy milk and spread it over the top.
Chill well until set.

As you can see from the measurements it was an elderly auntie!
Approximate measurements will work fine.
It goes quite firm when chilled so I'd mark it into squares when still slightly warm.

A choice of tray bakes would be lovely - brownies, rocky road, salted caramel millionaires shortbread, Victoria sponge squares... mmmmmm

I like mini canapé size tarts
Sweet pastry case (made in mini muffin tray or bought pre-made from Waitrose)
With thick caramel, whipped cream and a slice of banana
Or
Thick custard/creme pat & raspberry with icing sugar dust

Look & taste fab, prepare ahead and shove in fridge ready to hand around

A tower of doughnuts?

Great ideas. Thank you.

DH loves millionaires traybake. I'm sure chocolate dipped fruit will go down well. As will the eggy biscuits.

Now how the hell do I make a giant Welsh cake? (DH's request for a birthday cake).

I would just make millions of ordinary Welsh cakes and build them into a giant one. With a ribbon round and a dragon on the top.
Then serve a chocolate dip and a big bowl of strawberries to go with them.

MinnieMountain Sun 02-Jun-19 13:54:11

Now that's a brilliant idea Serin. He's not Welsh, I am, but I could find a fancy 40 candle instead of the dragon.

Cornettos or magnums!

QueenBlueberries Wed 05-Jun-19 17:08:02

I think cornettos and magnums are a fab idea.

Or maybe a lemon tray bake, with the cake cut into smallish squares. It's not too heavy after a BBQ. Served on napkins.
