To think this dessert was a bjt
209

DogDramas · 23/01/2022 09:52

We went to OH’s friend’s house last night for a meal. They went into the kitchen and brought out dessert. They had bitten the heads off hollow chocolate rabbits, filled them with Baileys, put squirty cream on top and were pretty pleased with themselves, let me tell you. I looked around for something else and they said that I’d reminded them that they’d forgotten something. I hoped it was a cheesecake but no, they came back with indoor sparklers which took a faff to light, then the cream melted and the sparklers melted the chocolate and I had a plate of mess.

OH and I are still confused about this. AIBU to think cheesecake would have been easier?

Am I being unreasonable?

Easier? Did they think it was a difficult dessert? I think you would have preferred cheese cake ;)

Is this supposed to be funny?

Well, obviously buying a cheesecake to serve would have been easier.

What they did was a lot easier compared to making a cheesecake.

Wonder if they are on MN, I’ve seen that “dessert” touted on here a few times.

Bitten? Not cut?

That bit would bother me.

The ease of preparing the food is upto the host surely. It would be even easier to order a food delivery but so what

Maybe they’ll see this, never invite you again and you won’t have to suffer their awful desserts in future. Hmm

Was it supposed to be easy or a bit fun?

(I'd also have preferred cheesecake bit they might have wanted to do something s bit different for fun. As long as they cut or tore the heads off rather than bit them off....)

Yuck! I think it was on an advert. Did they actually bite the heads off? No way.

Bitten Grin
That's a "recipe" off a baileys advert isn't it? But I think they used chocolate reindeer. Teethmarks aside sounds like they made an effort for you! Maybe not to your taste but still nice of them I think. When you host the next one just have a cheesecake

Are you sure they were bitten? That’s gross

How are you meant to eat that? Are you meant to spoon the cream off, drink the baileys and then eat the chocolate? Coz that's not a pudding. That's a fussy drink.

We’re you supposed to down the Baileys in one or something?

Well either they save the chocolate rabbits from last Easter, or they bought Easter bunnies in January. Which is just wrong by itself.

Add to that biting their heads off, AND Bailey's.

Honestly if they don't see this and defriend you first, I'd be blocking them by MondayConfused

You understand this is a friends house and not a restaurant where you get to decide the menu? Confused

I've seen similar recipes in lots of places recently, but as cocktail recipes - 'boozy bunnies' etc

It's not usually just baileys, maybe amaretto and other things too.

Should've had a straw to drink the contents imo, so the sparkler was a mistake

Also how would the sparklers melt the chocolate like that? Sparklers aren’t hot enough to do that.

As Baileys is absolutely disgusting, this is one of the worst ideas for "dessert" EVER

This was shown on a bailey's xmas advert, albeit they were chocolate reindeers, not rabbits. To be fair, on the advert it did look effective, albeit they didn't use sparklers.

I can only hope that your friends cut the head off, not bite them off.

I’m sure they hadn’t bitten the heads off. And how rude were you, sitting there looking around for something else?? In that situation you just laugh and drink the Baileys/eat the chocolate. Obviously they’d tried something new and you ought to have appreciated their effort not say there with a face like a slapped arse!!

I don't understand why you think there have been an alternative option of specifically cheesecake?

If someone serves you food and you start looking around for an imaginary cheesecake then you're pretty rude and quite odd tbh.
