What have you all been up to this week?

Yesterday was my birthday and I wanted to make a recipe with all my favourite things in-

 Strawberry’s,biscuits,chocolate,caramel and cream so this is what I came up with…

Base:

  • 100g Margarine

Topping:

  • 12 Strawberry’s
  • 300ml whipping cream

Also needed:

  • 12 paper muffin cases
  • Muffin tray to set them in.

Method:

  1. Place 12 muffin cases into a muffin pan.
  2. Place the biscuit into a food processor and turn them to crumbs and set aside.
  3. Melt the chocolate in a heat prof bowl over some simmering water, when melted remove from the pan and mix in biscuit crumbs.
  4. Spoon the chocolate crumbs into the 12 paper cases and push down with the back of a spoon.
  5. Leave to cool.
  6. When cold place in the fridge to set.


For the caramel:

  1. Melt the butter and sugar saucepan over a low heat keep stirring until the sugar has all dissolved.
  2. Add the condensed milk and bring to boil for about 2 minutes.
  3. Keep stirring all the time for a thick caramel.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir until cooled.
  5. Remove the muffin tin from the fridge before the caramel starts to set spoon into the cupcake cases.
  6. Leave to cool then place into a fridge to set for a few hours or over night.

    Happy Birthday, Claire Justine! I hope you had an awesome day! What a lovely, yummy treat to help you celebrate. Caramel is my favorite sweet (next to chocolate, of course) and the markets are still carrying some of the fresh local strawberries from this season. I'm always looking for something new and delicious to make with them, so I'll definitely have to give these a go! Thanks so much for hosting another fun & fab Creative Monday. Hope your upcoming week is one big continuous birthday party! ~Mary
