Each one is made in a tiny mould. The mould is carefully cracked by hand when the chocolate is set. It's done by fairies at night. No really.

thatll be the same way as they get the figs into the figrolls

almostanangel Fri 08-Jul-05 14:18:59

CountessDracula Fri 08-Jul-05 14:19:00

you should text AQA they will tell you

hunkermunker Fri 08-Jul-05 14:19:28

I know this. But it's a trade secret. I could go to prison if I told you. Or something...

CountessDracula Fri 08-Jul-05 14:19:51

almostanangel Fri 08-Jul-05 14:20:15

The chocolate coating is the clever part - uniform coating with no evidence of spread caused by resting on a surface while the chocolate is drying. This is done by atomising the chocolate and 'spraying' it onto the honeycomb as the balls wing and roll their way through a vortex (tornado type thing). Each little droplet of chocolate dries almost immediately so you get the even coating

The middle is microwaved Horlicks (kind of!). The outer is coated with chocolate on rollers, then as the sweets roll toward the end of the production line, they're dried.

CountessDracula Fri 08-Jul-05 14:24:05

almostanangel Fri 08-Jul-05 14:25:20

oh hunny..didnt you walk in the end?

spidermama Fri 08-Jul-05 14:33:39

Wow Countess you must be a real grown-up. I could never 'forget' I had choclate stashed away somewhere. It would be on my mind constantly until it was well and truly eaten or given away.
