B is for...Biscuits and Baking!



Continuing with my cooking activities I have invented my very own recipe today which I thought would be good to share here!
I really hate food waste and wanted to find a use for left over biscuits.
We had quite a large selection of various biscuits, mostly chocolate digestives!
I blitzed them all in my food processor, difficult to say exact quantity, but if you imagine an average food processor jug I used 2 full ones (When blitzed)
I then used 2 jelly mixtures. I used the sugar-free types, Raspberry flavour! I melted the crystals with about half a cup of boiling water then added a 14oz can of condensed milk.
I spread the mixture onto a lined baking sheet and chilled. Once cool I cut into pieces.
My friend Maria called this afternoon so I gave her a scotch egg and the desert was the new invention! She polished off 4 and took a tray full home, so I think the recipe is a success!

  4. Very inventive! Well done. We don't have much waste here because of the four waste disposal devices we have - well, three really, as Gus is too young to have too many changes in his diet ;-)

  6. Nice 'B's. I have to smile when you say you had quite a few biscuits left over. In our house? Not a chance, especially choccie digestives - the gannets around here would have demolished them!

  11. I have no capacity for cooking/baking improv - I need a hard and fast recipe or I fear disaster!

  15. I am glad I read the whole text. When I saw what I thought was a scotch egg but the started reading about chocolate buscits in the mix... I was wondering about your funny taste buds. Relieved to know they are separate things!

  21. The recipe sounds tasty - perhaps a little bit like a flapjack in texture? But I can't imagine having left-over chocolate biscuits!
