Alright folks, it’s time to get real. Today I’m going to tell you about how these these “easy, no-bake treats” became the bane of my existence. If you’re having trouble imagining what could possibly go wrong when making such a simple, innocent looking bar, don’t worry. You’re about to find out.
I remember the first time I had any sort of freeze dried fruit. It was an orange segment decorating the top of a decadent, flourless, chocolate cake. I was blown away by how light and airy the orange piece was. It seemed to dissolve in my mouth so quickly, almost like cotton candy, but the flavour was so bright and intense. Since then, I’ve been wanting to try experimenting with freeze dried fruits, but have had difficulty finding any locally.
Earlier this week, we were invited over to my best friend’s house for a belated birthday celebration for her mum. My friend is an insanely good cook, and she prepared an incredible meal of roast lamb, chicken, veggies and saffron rice. As stuffed as we were, we still managed to finish the meal with an epic dessert featuring not one, but six cheesecakes!
I made this caramel popcorn recipe for the first time more than a decade ago. I was blown away by how quick and easy it was to make. I was even more blown away by how quick and easy it was to eat!
