The boys wanted to do some baking this...

The boys wanted to do some baking this afternoon. Hating to disappoint them I began searching through the cupboards. Unfortunately for them it is the afternoon before shopping day, and I had no eggs or flour to make cakes or biscuits.

I tried to explain that we could do baking tomorrow, after the shopping man has been; ( yes, I'm a lazy mum, and I like to have my shopping delivered to my house 🙂 ) but they we're having none of it. So I began to search the cupboards again, and this is what I found:

  • rusk biscuits (yes them horrible baby biscuits, but trust me it works 🙂 )
  • plain chocolate
  • dried fruit, for example, raisins or cranberries.
  • golden syrup.

    I'm sorry, just have got to mention this. Checking my gmail as I write this and I saw an advertisement for this website, It is the 4th ad I've seen from their site today! I do believe I'm being stalked! Alright, I am going to resume what I was writing 😉





1. First the boys broke up the plain chocolate and put them into the saucepan.

2. They then squirted in some golden syrup to help it all stick together.

3. On a very low heat, I started to melt the chocolate and golden syrup in the saucepan. As it began to melt it started to become sticky, so I added a small amount of milk, and whisked it up, so it was all nice and smooth.

4. Whilst I was melting the chocolate, the boys started putting rusk biscuits into a large bowl. They took it in turns to demolish the biscuits with the end of the rolling pin. ( I think they enjoyed this bit the most!)

5. They then added some dried fruit to the bowl of very crumbled rusks.

6. I then added the melted chocolate, and they stirred it, until it was all mixed together.

7. They then emptied it all into a thin round cake tin, and squashed it all down until it was really flat.

8. Much to the boys disappointment, I then put their creation into the fridge to set for half an hour.

The boys wanted to call it " chocolate crumbly crackers "

Many thanks needs to go to Smiles Unlimited who in fact provided me with the seed idea for this post in an message they sent me. They appear to be a very good Coquitlam based dentist in the event that anybody's curious.
