Although we pride ourselves in our festive preparation, Christmas seemed to catch up on us a little more quickly than we would have liked and as such the school term ended before we had had a chance to enter “our baked item” in the Great Inter Office Festive Bake Off …However, now with plenty of spare time at home, we decided to have a bake off of our own, but without the baking ……
Our chosen “dish”…… Rocky Road A La Everything But The Kitchen Sink …. which I started off by melting butter and golden syrup in a bowl over a pan of hot water …..
….. and then added all the chocolate we could find in the house to make a glorious culinary symphony of molten deliciousness.
Then Darrell and Nigel took over …. adding several chopped fingers of fudge ….. and chunks of Fry’s Turkish Delight ….
….. with Nigel and Darrell establishing a rota of five minute stints to get all the ingredients melded together ……
….. until, with aching arms, the mixture was ready to put into dishes to
consolidate, set like concrete harden, so that it could be cut up (and then consumed)
Now, we have to confess to being very remiss in not taking any pictures of us all tucking into all our hard work, but unfortunately the tangible and palpable excitement got the better of us ….. and we just nommed, and nommed and nommed, until we realised our photographical faux pas as Nigel popped the very last morsel in his mouth! We then had to lounge very stilly and carefully in the London style for several hours, keeping any movement minimal thus rendering it impossible to get the camera anyway
But, we can all safely vouch safe to it’s deliciousness, with our secret ingredient bringing everything together! Nom, nom, nom!!
