After finding myself with too much time on my hands and being slightly too competitive, I decided to have a go at pimping something myself. I decided that the secret of a high score is originality, technicality and finishing touches.
My girlfriend and I trawled the shelves of Tesco looking for the perfect project and I must admit it was her idea, we'd pimp a terry's chocolate orange.
So our list was;
Masses of chocolate 25 x 200g Bars of milk chocolate @48p each
Orange extract @ 69p
New roll of cling film 45p
sample chocolate oranges 2 for £3
Total price £16.14 (high but you have to see the result!)
The first thing we did when we got home was make the house impregnable to Dawn French. Then we began the project. We fashioned some moulds out of cardboard from the house, a chopping board, some bluetak, selotape and half a loo roll. I think I should have been an engineer or a blue peter presenter
Then we melted a couple of the chocolate bars and mixed in a teaspoonful of the extract. it is worth mentioning that this recipe makes identical flavoured chocolate to that of "Terry's" but will make you sick very quickly if you keep licking the spoon!
We poured the orange chocolate into the moulds and popped into the freezer to harden and then over 3 days repeated the process.
Once I had enough wedges I glued them together with more melted chocolate, by this point the smell was beginning to make us nauseous. But as true perfectionists do we continued onward.
