Desserts Made with your Favourite Choccy Treats
I LOVE the way chefs have been using their favourite childhood treats to make cheeky, nostalgic desserts.
It all started with Heston, who has created a fashion for using popping candy again, and David Chang putting Corn Flakes in his cereal ice-cream at the Momofuku Milk Bar in New York.
When two of the biggest chefs in the world are doing it, you definitely know you have a trend!
It had to happen, though, and I'm the first in line to embrace old-school chocolate recipe bars rather than all the 95 per cent cocoa solids nonsense.
Can I finally admit that I don't like those dark, über-bitter bars? There's a place for all that, of course, but sometimes you don't want your sweet treat to be the epitome of excellence, you just want it to bring a smile to your face.
So if, like me, you have a tub of Nutella hidden at the back of the cupboard or are often at a loss with what to do with those enormous Toblerone bars bought out of guilt at the airport for having been away from the kids for too long, give these recipes a try.
The naughtiness of them alone will make you enjoy the indulgence even more. And after a gruelling first week back at school, the kids will thank you for it.
