Tots100 latest challenge in the competition to win a family holiday to Center Parcs is Chocolate innovation. I used to love going to the sweet shop at Center Parcs and this challenge has brought back some wonderful memories.
I asked my eldest daughter what comes out of an egg. I expected the answer to be a chicken and so was going to make something with a chicken theme, instead her reply was 'a dinosaur'. I did have to ask her several times to make sure I understood but her answer was a dinosaur. For our 'Easter' themed chocolate innovation we have created a prehistoric pudding
First we made dirt
280ml whipping cream
3 drops vanilla essence
Melt the chocolate.
Mix vanilla essence and whipping cream together, until starts to thicken. Try not to drink all the cream
Then mix in using a whisk the chocolate.
Whip all the ingredients together and leave in fridge until ready to serve. Lick the chocolate left over in the bowl
I made a jelly dinosaur using a dinosaur jelly mould before arranging them all to make a pudding.
I added some dinosaur eggs and some marshmallows to represent rocks although my eldest thought it was snow. I think its quite clever of her to say a dinosaur comes from an egg. What is even more impressive is that over the Easter weekend 'Walking with dinosaurs' arena tour is on in a city near us, we may have to go and see the show.
