A plesant surprise

Those that know me will know that I am very specific about my chocolate tastes and although not a chocolate snob in thinking that the only good chocolates come from the Swiss, far from it. For me there are several local chocies that are very good and by local I mean south African. There us in my opinion only one slab chocolate manufacturer call me biased but I would never look at a Beacon slab, until now that is. They have just launched a wafer slab which is truly define , well done. I will look for some more info and will post a picture of the range.

An old favourite

Kids will love these chocolate crackles with an Easter twist. Most adults won't mind them either!
20 small crackles
  • 200g Mars bars, chopped
  • 2 tbs thin cream
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder, sifted
  • 3 cups Rice Bubbles
  • 20 small Easter eggs, to decorate
  1. Place the Mars bars, thin cream and cocoa in a heatproof bowl over simmering water (get an adult to help), making sure bowl does not touch water. Stir until melted and smooth. Place Rice Bubbles in a large bowl, pour in Mars bar mixture and stir until well combined. Pile mixture into paper cases and decorate each with an Easter egg. Place in the fridge until firm.
