This was a true exercise in pimping madness. Our challenge: to make gold out of nothing more than chocolate and biscuit!
To start, I examined the underpinnings of a genuine gold bar, using an alchemy process (chewing) to break it down into its component parts. After some discussion, we were agreed that the taste was relativly similar to that of Foxes Golden Crunch biscuits and White Chocolate.
A quick trip to ASDA later, and we had the necessary ingredients to begin the pimping process.
In hindsight, what you see in this picture is a little bit over the top. What you actually need to begin your bouillion is:
5 x 200g Bars of White Chocolate (50p from ASDA per bar)
2 x Packets of Fox's Golden Crunch biscuits
1 x Medium rectangular cake tin (non-stick!)
First up, we melted 1 bar of chocolate to use for the top of the bar. At this point, I will let you know that several lessons were learnt during this piming exercise - Lesson 1 - DO NOT use a big saucepan to melt Chocolate on a high heat! This results in a lot of burnt, lumpy, smelly chocolate...
Pour whatever Chocolate you haven't fried into the base of the cake tin. Stick this in the fridge and leave to set.
While you are waiting for the first layer of chocolate to set, empty two packets of the biscuits onto a suitable surface. Proceed to bash the absoloute crap out of them with any blunt instrument you have to hand.
Lesson 2 - Attempt to contain the biscuits in something bashable or you'll end up with a biscuit/floor combination, wasting the creamy-crunchy goodness of Fox's creations. We found that using a resealable food bag did the trick.
