Mars Bar Fudge

Last year we had some chocolate left after Easter and made some cornflake buns this year we decided to use what we had left to make mars bar fudge.
It is really simple and extremely tasty, it wont be hanging around in our house long!

Ingredients
-400g milk chocolate
-1 can of condensed milk
-3 Mars bars
You will also need
-Baking tray with high sides, baking paper & saucepan

Method
-Break up the chocolate and put it into the saucepan along with the condensed milk.
-Heat over a low heat until it has all melted.
-Take it off the heat & leave to cool for 15 minutes
-While its cooling chop up the mars bars into slices, make sure to keep one mars bar separate.
-Put the baking paper into the baking tray to make it easier to take out after its all cooled.
-Once cooled add two of the chopped mars bars into the mixture and stir.
-After stirring empty out the mixture into the baking tray and spread it out evenly.
-Add the final sliced mars bar to the top,

More Fudge!

Yes, I know my most recent blog was one about fudge but after making that simple fudge I remembered the fudge that I made last Christmas so I thought I would share it with you too! This fudge is pretty simple to make too, but not quite as simple as the last one! No thermometer or anything though so us folk without one can make this too! =D

          Ingredients

  1. 350g Icing Sugar
  2. 75g Unsalted Butter
  3. 4 Teaspoons Milk
  4. 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
  5. 75g Pink & White Marshmallows or Small Ones!
  6. Sprinkles
  7. Small Baking Tray
  8. Baking Paper

Method

  1. Line the Baking Tray with the baking paper
  2. Use a sieve sift the icing sugar into  large bowl and make a hollow in the middle 
  3. Put the butter,milk and vanilla essence into a small pan. If you have used large marshmallows cut them in half! If you have used the little ones like me, then you can just put them in!wpid-imag6645.jpg
  4. Gently heat the marshmallows etc in the pan and stir the mixture every so often untill it has all melted!
  5. Pour the mixture into the hollow of the icing sugar and then quickly mix it all together untill it goes smooth!
  6. Pour the mixture into your baking tray and spread it out so it is all flat
  7. Put the sprinkles on top! Make sure you push these into the  fudge so they they will stay there! wpid-imag6647.jpg
  8. Place it in the fridge for a few hours
  9. Take it out an cut it up… Enjoy! wpid-imag6649.jpg

Now to get back to a few more “normal” posts in the next few days! If you try this let me know how it turns out and what you think! I really enjoy it and have made it for my little girls party!

Thai Green Curry

I decided that I wanted to try and make something different for myself and the hubby! When I was in Wales visiting my family my aunt made this amazing Green Thai curry so I asked her for the recipe! Whenever I made it, it was also delicious so I thought I would share the recipe with you guys! It was off BBC Good Food! I don’t have a link to the recipe on there as she emailed it to me without the link! On the recipe I followed the numbers at the end in Brackets, this made 4 lots of the curry paste! So I froze three so that it is an easy meal to make whenever we fancy it again! I made it with chicken! I know some of the ingredients sound a little strange, but I got them all easily from a supermarket.

Here is the recipe for the curry paste;

Ingredients – enough paste for 4 ( x 4)


2-3 medium green chillies, de-seeded and roughly chopped ( 8 )
1 shallot, roughly chopped (1 large onion )
2.5cm/1in piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated (10cm )
1 garlic clove, crushed ( 4 )
small bunch of fresh coriander, stalks and roots attached ( large bunch )
1 lemongrass stalks, chopped ( 3 tsp from jar )
½ lime, grated zest and juice ( 2 )
4 kaffir lime leaves, torn into pieces (if unavailable, grated zest of ½ extra lime) ( 10 )
1.5cm piece galangal, peeled and chopped (use extra ginger if unavailable ) (2 tsp jar )
½ tbsp coriander seeds, crushed ( 4 tsp ground )
½ tsp ground cumin ( 2 tsp)
½ tsp black peppercorns, crushed ( 2 tsp from mill )
1 tbsp Thai fish sauce ( 4tbsp )
1½ tbsp olive oil (5 tbsp )

Method

Blitz everything together in a food processer or mix everything by hand using a pestle and mortar (or plastic bowl and end of a rolling pin if you dont have one of these either). By hand gives you a chunkier paste but the flavours are as good and it feels a bit more rustic

 

This is how my paste looked after it was all made!

Then I added it to a big saucepan, added a tin of coconut and brought it to the boil! After that then I added the chicken which I had previously diced and brought the paste down to a simmer! I then left that to simmer for half an hour.. and hey presto it was done and delicious! Even if i must say so myself!  So as you can see it is really a quick and easy meal once the paste has been made!

This is it cooking in the pot;

I then made some noddles and a nan to go along with it! Here is a picture of the finished thing;

I would love to hear if you guys make this and what you think of it! Enjoy! =]
