It's my first weekend back in the UK. The sun is shining, Wales kicked France's butt last night and I passed out at 10pm giving me 10 hours of blissful solid sleep.
Oh and I just made these gooey chocolatey trenzas again.
I am getting crumbs all over my laptop but it's oh so worth it!
Just look at this...
I knocked up these last week in Spain for the crew and they were greeted with uuuhs and aaahs of enjoyment. It was actually bloody freezing in Spain last week and we all needed a pick-me-up. The crew enjoyed them with big mugs of tea & coffee, and not a crumb was left so I guess they went down well.
But I never actually got to try a full piece except a little nibble of a corner, so I knew I needed to make them again in the comfort of my own home where I didn't have to share it with anybody! Muahaha
Cut downward diagonal lines from the corner of the chocolate bar. Those perfectionists might want to make them even, but as long as they look similar you will be fine!
Fold down the top rectangle over the head of the chocolate bar and plait one thread over the other like below.
Carry on until your plait looks something like this. Chop away any overhanging threads.
Before you reach the bottom, fold down the bottom flap and finish off the last few threads again chopping away any overhanging bits on either side.
Beat one egg up into a bowl and get ready to paint!
