Step Four: After 10 minutes in sub-zero temperatures, remove the tray. Now the tricky part – getting the small pots out whilst leaving the King Rolo intact.
1. Gentle persuasion
2. Firm but fair wriggling about
3. Hot water inside small pots to create enough melt to free them
4. PLIERS! (Plus a liberal serving of cursing).
After about 15 minutes the small pots had their freedom and we had our King Rolo shells. Inevitably they went back into the freezer.
Step Six: "I remember the first sweet my Grandfather gave to me… it was feckin' HUGE!". Werthers have never been involved in something so cool. Blasted to molten perfection – like lava, but more buttery!
WARNING! Hot toffee can remove skin.
The toffee is spooned, and after the addition of a small amount of water, poured into the shells. The tray is flung back into the freezer before the toffee eats it's way through the chocolate shells… and the work top… probably…
Step Seven: The now almost set King Rolos are finished off with a cap of chocolate to create the base before going for a final freeze.
