A tendency/necessity to spend our days at work trawling the internet for hilarious websites led us to PimpThatSnack.com
A combined fondness for candy and not overly ambitious but well executed projects led us to partake of the snack pimping process.
Firstly we needed a snack. We noted that the majority of snacks on the site were of an international nature, yet we decided to go with a kiwi classic: the Squiggle.
Squiggles (sometimes mistakenly referred to as Squiggle Tops) are a delicious combination of biscuit, icing, hokey pokey pieces (honeycomb), and chocolate - blurring the lines between cookie and confectionary.
With our goal set, we started.
Cookie dough (flour, sugar, butter, baking soda, baking powder, eggs)
2 Crunchy bars
700g white chocolate buttons
700g milk chocolate buttons
Yellow food colouring
Oven tray size restrictions resulted in the decision to bake two identical, still giant but not super giant, squiggles. Nothing too exciting here.
For the delicious centre we used a white chocolate ganache, with a touch of colouring.
Hokey pokey. We cheated. We hacked up crunchy bars. So what. Calm down.
Chocolate coating. Pretty self explanatory.
