Super-Smartie (with video!)
by Nathan, Anna and Lucy for £5.91
24th August 2006
After many heated discussions over which snack to pimp, we finally settled on the chocolate bastion of childhood, Nestlé Smarties (Love Hearts were considered at one point but then it was decided that 20lb of chocolate would be far more fun to eat at the end).
The ingredients were:
15 x Tesco Milk Cooking Chocolate Bars
Various food colourings
A pack of Smarties (this was for both reference and to provide us with the energy needed for such a gruelling task)
Orange Juice (though this wasn't a good idea and we don't recommend it...)
Estimated Cost: £5.91
Some creative mastery in the enlarged wrappings:
All the chocolate was lovingly melted 3 bars at a time and was then poured into several bowls. It was here that we grew over-confident and decided to make a chocolate orange Smartie by adding orange juice. Needless to say this made the mixture seperate and form some kind of mutant chocolate which still to this day hasn't set in the freezer.
