Tis the season to stuff your face and forget the calories.
Surly one day cant hurt...
Yesterday I took command of the kitchen for one of many days of festive cooking for the week ahead. I have a list, a long list that seems never ending at this stage of the game, but I know that come Christmas day all will have fallen into place and I will have been stressing for nothing.
* 250 grams arrowroot biscuits
* 395 gram condensed milk
* 1 cup of coconut
* 1/4 cup of cocoa
* Rum (to your tasting)
* Extra coconut for decorating
In a large bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well.
Refrigerate or freeze for later.
EASY CHOCOLATE FUDGE
* 395 gram can condensed milk
* 125 grams butter
* 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
* 2 tablespoons golden syrup
* 155 gram milk chocolate buds (or chocolate of your choice)
Combine condensed milk, butter, sugar and golden syrup in a heavy based saucepan.
Stir over low heat for 5 minutes or until sugar has dissolved.
Increase heat to moderate, and cook stirring for a further 10 minutes or until mixture thickens.
Remove from heat.
Add the chocolate buds and stir until all the chocolate has melted.
Pour into a greased, lined, square cake tin, and set aside to cool.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 1 hour or until firm.
Turn fudge out onto a chopping board, and cut into squares to serve.
Enjoy, and Merry Christmas
