Winter wonder tray bake

Summer is over and the shops have lots of Hallowe’en stuff in already. There’s also Christmas goodies appearing!!! I came across this new Winter Chocolate Bar from Cadbury’s and decided to use it with my traybake.

I crushed a pack of digestives, added a handful of mini marshmallows, 150g melted unsalted butter, grated Crunchie Dairy Milk bar from Cadbury’s and added a can of condensed milk. I mixed this all and poured it into a oven tray. I added the chocolate on top and popped in the fridge.

Will get 24 pieces and already most have been booked!!!!

My extra hot chilli condiment

Last night I made my mouth watering and very hot chilli condiment. I call it a condiment as it’s not really a sauce or a pickle, more an accompaniment!!

I used 6 handfuls of fresh green chillis and red Thai birds eye chillis. These I chopped and blitzed in my Magic Bullet (2 full cups) to a rough consistency. In a deep sauce pan I heated 500 ml Groundnut oil.

I added the freshly ground chillis, 1 tablespoon of chilli powder, 1/2 tablespoon salt, 3 tablespoons of dry chilli flakes and my special ingredient, 1 tablespoon of Punjabi Achaar Masala. I was very luck to get this on a past trip to India!!!

The mixture was thoroughly stirred and cooked on high heat for 10 minutes. Then I reduced heat and simmered for 20 minutes and voila!!!!

Oh so hot and moorish, my wife and I had it with crackers and cheese!!
