The Easter Countdown – Scrumdidlyumptious Bars

Scrumdiddlyumptious bars

When I was brainstorming ideas for this Easter Countdown I decided I wanted to try and feature some fantastic Easter presents. My original plan was a Faberge Easter egg. How fantastic would that be! Well great plan, turns out I couldn’t find an appropriate Easter egg mould and I didn’t trust my own ability to decorate to the level of Faberge and then I hit upon it. Scrumdidlyumptious Bars.

You know Willy Wonka!

It just so happens that Monsieur From Scratch is a connoisseur of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, which makes this a perfect idea.  Anyway I decided instead of Easter Eggs for all my beloved Family I would make them Scrumddidlyumptious Bars. The issue here – what is a Scrumddidlyumptious Bar? All I seem to know is that – I don’t ask a fish how it swims, or a bird how it flies, no siree I don’t.

The real question is – can I take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew, cover it with chocolate and a miracle or too – and make the perfect bar of Chocolate.

Well I may not be a Candy Man, but I certainly know this, everyones tastes differ so the only way to get to the bottom of my family’s perfect Chocolate bar? Simple… Just ask!

And here are the results:

  1. White Chocolate (read Milkybar) with Raisins and Nuts
  2. A mix of Milk and White chocolate flowing in ribbons with juicy Raisins, bubbles of Praline with some Honey crisp bits with caverns of soft Caramel
  3. Orange Chocolate with Hazelnuts
  4. Dark Chocolate with Almonds and Cointreau
  5. Layers of Nougat, Caramel and Biscuit, covered in milk Chocolate with an embedded champagne truffle – This one even came with an instructional  drawing

As you can see a varying degree of challenges, but all well worth attempting.

SO can I mix it with love and make the world taste good?

Find out tomorrow! (Don’t you just love a cliff hanger)

In the meantime why not get planning your perfect chocolate bars, all you really need is some chocolate to melt (I am planning to use a thin loaf tin for my chocolate mould) and some goodies to place in it. That way you will have the perfect Easter gifts.
