Ok so what do very bored students (who have very important exams to study for) do instead of work during ICT lessons..? Look at PIMPTHATSNACK! Kari, Ellie and Harriet fantasised about their own giant snacks while their small, yappy, welsh ICT teacher had his back turned for at least 2 hours a week, so when the time came to create their own giant sugar-coated calorie mountain for their friend’s birthday, they got excited. VERY excited.
We wanted to go crunchie-side of the street. It got us most hungry and looked yummiest. We also didn’t appreciate how hard it’d be to make….we seriously thought we could do better…
A quick trip to the supermarket on the way home gave us:
1KG Caster Sugar
14 Bars (1.4Kg) of cheap cheap chocolate J
500ml Golden Syrup
Bicarbonate of Soda
Alluminium Foil. Lots.
First we made a mould. In a big cardboard box which we the covered with foil. We probably should have buttered it too, but forgot.
Then we mixed up all the sugar and golden syrup in a great big saucepan, we did it in three batches, just to make it harder for ourselves. Once it was all a big sugary mess we put it on the heat until it bubbled and went all brownish.
