Nigel Cookery Instructor Extraordinaire

With so much chocolate left over from Christmas Nigel decided it might be an opportune time to introduce Iris to the art of the chocolate crispy cake!
And it goes without saying that before any food preparation was done, all hands were scrupulously scrubbed!
Rather than risk any accidents involving knives being wielded by little hands on slabs of chocolate, Nigel took the precaution of doing all the necessary chopping at home beforehand, thus alleviating any said health and safety issues!
Nigel said that the chocolate was relatively safe from sampling, however on the other hand the marshmallows that Nigel thought would add an extra dimension to the crispy cakes proved much more tempting ………
……. and as a result only about a quarter of the intended measure actually got added!
Next came much intense mixing ……..
…… followed by the filling of cake cases and then the obligatory licking of the bowl.
And when everything was finally done Nigel insisted that Iris do the washing up too …… as that, he said, was also all part of the culinary experience.
Sadly there are no pictures of the finished results ……. once set they all just sort of disappeared ……. but Nigel did tell me that there was much nomming as Iris does make exceedingly good crispy cakes.

Well done Iris, and Nigel.

"With so much chocolate left over from Christmas." Chocolate left over from Christmas? Impossible. It all gets eaten well before now.
