While all this was afoot, we made up the butter icing using a borrowed electric whisk from an, until then, unknown neighbour. Thanks neighbour! (We’ll send you the bill for cleaning up the chocolate that went absolutely everywhere.) The website, Pimp That Snack, is clearly some sort of cunning ruse to encourage community spirit. Especially as we’ll be offering our finished item to our new friend and probably the entire street. Thanks Pimp That Snack!
When the bottom layer of chocolate was set, we smeared on the butter icing AKA “smooth chocolate flavoured cream” and popped our biscuity bit on top, leaving a nice gap between the biscuit and the edge of our dish ready to fill with more chocolate.
Halfway through this process we realised that we didn’t have enough chocolate. No matter what you make, you WILL run out of chocolate. We had seen the evidence from previous Pimp That Snackers and had thought it through… we bought literally tens of bars of chocolate, much to the chagrin of the checkout assistant. But it wasn’t enough. And with less than ten minutes to closing time, a trip to Sainsbury’s ensued to completely finish off their already depleted Milk Chocolate supplies. We melted the last of the batch and topped up the dish right to the brim.
Holy crapping hell, thats a lot of chocolate
Finally, when we came to tip out the feast we had prepared it took a little persuasion. When we say a little persuasion, we mean that we had to bash the bottom of the tin (denting it in the process), pour boiling water on it and even considered ironing said upturned tin – a foolish endeavour upon returning from the pub. We had just about had enough when it loosened up and fell out. There was one small problem though… our masking tape and Property For Sale sign was still attached to the chocolate. “Disaster!” one would think, but with some diligent fingernail action, we had that tape off in a flash… and behold the mighty Club weighing in at 1 stone!
Just think, with enough dedication to be faffing about with a giant chocolate bar at five to one in the morning on a weeknight, you too can feel like Willy Wonka and create a pimptastic snack.
