Well, it's New Year's Eve and i am getting ready to head out to spend the night with some very lovely friends and get very drunk!
I've made some cranberry vodka which had been infusing in the fridge for the past week or so and i have just finished the After Eight cake. An online friend had mentioned it so i tried it on Boxing Day but didn't put any cream in it so it was very hard indeed, but it tasted gorgeous so today i have improvised a little!
I crushed half a large pack of digestives and mixed with just over half a slab of melted butter and put it in the fridge to set. Then i melted a box of After Eights in the microwave, it took about a minute but i stirred it after 30 seconds. While that was doing i whisked half a tub of double cream and added about two thirds of a tub of softenened Philly then when the chocolate was done i stirred the other half a tub of cream into it until it was smooth. Next i folded the chocloate mix into the whipped cream mix and finally i poured it over the digestive base and it's now sitting in the fridge setting (hopefully!!)
Fingers crossed it all works out ok and if i see you tonight ENJOY! :oD
Wishing you all a happy New Year, i hope it brings all you wish for xx
