Burly Curly Wurly

27 May

Ooooooooooh, I love a giant sized chocolate bar, me!

It was my good friend Laila’s birthday this weekend – and as we all know, the lady LOVES Curly Wurlies…

Tim Ward and I made her a giant one to keep her sweet:

read on for the details…

The ingredients:

First, we put all the toffees in a bowl and melted them down in the microwave:

Then when all the toffee was nice and soft, we moulded it into a curly wurly shape:

Then we put some chocolate in a bowl and melted all that down:

Then we spread it all over one side of the toffee which we put on a cooling rack so all the excess chocolate would drip down:

We used a special tool (which might have just been a kebab stick) to poke all the chocolate through:

Then the whole thing went in the fridge too cool down:

When it had all set, we covered the other side in chocolate and let that cool down too – until…

…le voila! – the burly curly wurly was complete – hurrah!!:

    Fantastic, I love Curly Wurlys! I wonder whether a quick once over with a hair drier would give it that glazed look?
