I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to take part in the sponsored challenge for Collective Bias® – who doesn’t love to eat chocolate?!?
I’ll be honest and say that I am happy to eat any kind of chocolate going, I’m really not fussed! But when I was younger we were generally given Cadbury chocolate buttons as treats, so Cadbury does hold a certain element of nostalgia for me.
I decided to do my shop at Tesco as we have two of their superstores close to us and they usually have a good range of products. You can see more of my shopping experience here.
I used the following recipe:
110g caster sugar
275g plain flour
Cream the butter in a large bowl until it is soft. Add the caster sugar and beat until your mixture is light and fluffy.
Sieve in your flour and mix together until you have formed a dough (I had to use my hands in the final stages to help bind it all together)
Form small balls of dough and place them on your baking tray.
Flatten with the back of a fork/spoon and bake in the oven for about 15 mins at 170C or Gas Mark 3.
It confused Meg no end that we weren’t going to roll out our dough and use cutters (me too to be honest) I wasn’t convinced it would work so I was surprised when the biscuits came out of the oven looking like biscuits!
I took the biscuits out 5 minutes before we needed to, to ensure that they were soft enough and then we used our thumbs to make small indentations placing the button in the indentation. It did melt the button a small bit around the edges and so perhaps didn’t look as neat as I had hoped but my official testers didn’t notice and certainly no complaints were made at the dinner table later!!
We made basic vanilla ice cream and then chopped up some of the Cadbury dairy milk bar to mix in as chocolate chips. Here’s how we got on:
