Some days you just want a little treat, but there’s nothing in the kitchen that doesn’t require whisking, beating or some oven time. In these desperate times this is my favourite treat and I call it my “Cheeky Little Treat” because you can make it quickly and doesn’t leave behind wrappers or dirty mixing bowls. Usually it consists of yoghurt, fruit, nuts and honey or a sweet sauce but look at this beauty. Ultra Mel custard, almond flakes, glacé cherries and Huletts chocolate syrup.
Try it out and let me know what your favourite combination is.
This recipe I remember from childhood, a treat you’d only find at birthday parties. Its so quick and easy that I made this batch while my telephone line was being installed. These are best eaten after they’ve spent a day in the fridge, so make ahead of time.
There are loads of variations that I’ve still got to try out such as using other biscuits (ginger or eat-some-mores), experimenting with food colouring/essence and trying using fine crumbs rather than chunks. If you’ve tried any variations please send me your recipe and pictures.
