After hearing about Selfridges London store selling out of bacon-flavour-chocolate, (google "Mo's Bacon Bar") I wondered about "BaconSalt Chocolate" (okay, we've already tried it with ice-cream!)
I took 100 gm of Cadbury's Dairy Milk and decided to melt it down, add BaconSalt, and see what was the result. I knew Amanda would call me daft, so I sneaked around the kitchen while she was engrossed in a DVD movie, and tried to gently heat the chocolate in the microwave. This was not a 100% success! At first nothing much happened, and the chocolate refused to melt. but then it started turning powdery - not good! I'd added about 3/4 of a level teaspoon and I then put the dish with the chocolate into a bigger dish of hot water and continued, in the hope it would turn liquid. (it didn't!)
Finally I added a little milk and stirred it frequently, and the consistency improved a bit, so I spread it on a shallow disk and refrigerated. The result had a sort of crunchy "fudge" consistency and I tried Amanda out on it - she was moderately impressed, but said I obviously didn't know how to melt chocolate (well, she used to work many years ago in a Thorntons shop, so she should know!) I think it's even more "more-ish" than regular chocolate and our teenage kids, Holly and Alex obviously like it too as I noticed this morning that a lot had vanished from the fridge before we got up!
Tomorrow Amanda has promised to show me how to do it "properly"!
