My first thoughts were of chocolate or a long laze in a bath full of soft scented bubbles……
Then I looked through my photographs to see what indulgences I could find there and it’s not always what you have in mind that jumps out at you from the screen. So, here are my photos for this week:
I love Sushi and I have never seen so much in one place at one time…….
I had dreamed of going to Egypt ever since my first history lesson and in 2008 my dream came true. After spending days in the baking sun, taking in the wonderful sights and sounds of temples, the bustle of the soukhs and markets, we stared in awe at the pyramids…….
and ended our stay here, almost a shame to cause a ripple….
But I couldn’t end without some chocolate…………..
Go on, have a piece, I have……………yum
PS. If you want the recipe, let me know 🙂
7oz tin of condensed milk
1oz cocoa powder
8fl oz double cream
4 fl ozs milk
1tsp vanilla extract
1 oz mini marshmallows
Put the condensed milk and cocoa powder into a medium saucepan and cook stirring, over a low heat, till the mixture is smooth and slightly thickened. Remove from the heat and allow to cool down a little. Stir in the cream, milk and vanilla and stir well. Put mixture into the fridge until quite cold.
If you have an ice cream maker, pour mixture in, then freeze/churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Add the marshmallows halfway through the freezing process
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, pour the mixture into a metal bowl (this helps to speed up the freezing process). Place in the freezer for 30 mins, remove and beat with an electric mixer until smooth, making sure any ice crystals that have formed are broken up; return to freezer for 40 mins, then remove and beat again with mixer, repeat the “40 minute freeze & beat cycle” three times, this should give you a total of 2½ hours freezing time. Add the marshamallows after about 2 hours so that they don’t all fall to the bottom of the mixure.
This recipe makes enough for four servings.
If you prefer a Rockier Road add 1oz of either chopped walnuts or pecans with the marshmallows.
Top with melted chocolate or your favourite chocolate sauce
