Don’t forget the goggles!

I can’t believe I have never made Churros before!

A week or so ago we hosted a ‘Games Night’ (it started with a Movie Trivia Quiz Game and ended with Cards Against Humanity…) It is kind of an unwritten rule that the host puts on a little bit of a buffet/selection of nibbles. Well quite frankly, I’ve had enough buffet food over the festive season so opted for chilli, wedges and nachos, plus something sweet.

So easy to make, I used the recipe from the BBC Good Food Website but added a generous sprinkling of sugar to the dry ingredients before mixing together, and for an extra twist, I used Dark Chocolate with a hint Orange. Don’t be put off by the comments in the Method on the site- basically suggesting you wear full body armour as the Churros can explode when cooking, don’t get me wrong, I have no doubt that they could be pretty dangerous (please always be careful around hot oil!) But none of mine exploded so thankfully I didn’t regret not having any protective eye wear!

Definitely recommend you give them a go, everyone was impressed (well, everyone who got to try them- one person was a little slow and missed out due to everyone else scoffing them!) and I have even been instructed to make them again!

Love is nearly in the air

We’re nearing the end of January already, how can that be?! Thoughts have already turned to upcoming ‘events’ such as Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Easter. We have already relisted our most popular item of last year- ย the Creme Egg Scotch Egg, but more about that and developments to the range later.

It’s Valentine’s Day in a matter of a few weeks, why not get some ‘Sweets for your Sweet’ and treat your other half to half a dozen Cake Pops (see here). This year we are offering you a choice of Chocolate, Lemon, Vanilla or Salted caramel Irish Creme. Each one is topped with either Milk, White or Dark Chocolate and topped with sprinkles. Alternatively, for those of you not lived up, or for those of you wanting to gift something to your bestie we have these Loveheart Message Cake Pops (see here) which can be personalised with a message of your choice, think ‘Single Again’, ‘No Chance’, or ‘U.G.L.Y’ for a little inspiration!
