I only used half of the slab so this morning I used the other half to make some Pain au Chocolat pastries using a bar of confectioner’s chocolate I found lurking at the back of a cupboard. They turned out quite well, although a bit heavier than I would have liked. We had them warm from the oven with our coffee.
That left me with half a bar of chocolate. Hmm. I did a quick Google search and found a recipe for fudge using peanut butter and Greek yoghurt. I had half a tub of yoghurt in the fridge (son-in-law Craig likes Greek yoghurt for breakfast) so I had all the ingredients. I have never made fudge before but it was easy to mix all the ingredients together. I now have to wait for 8 hours for it to set. Not sure what it will turn out like but the mixture tasted sublime (yes, I licked the bowl clean!).
I just hate throwing food away.
Your chocolate pastry looks very good, as good as any pastry I've seen at the bakery. Well done! The fudge sounds good too. When I made fudge (once) it came out like pudding and had to be eaten with a spoon.ReplyDelete
A great way to use up leftovers! I often have puff pastry to use up so might try that. Hope the fudge turns out well - I`m sure it will be yummy regardless!ReplyDelete
The pain au chocolat look wonderful; very professional.ReplyDelete
They look scrumptious! Poor Rick, no chance of any crumbs, and no taste of the fudge either!ReplyDelete
They look great and I will be interested to hear how the fudge turns out. The fact that it already tasted great means it will be good however it turns out.ReplyDelete
Do let us know how it turns out.ReplyDelete
Has Craig told any mother-in-law jokes yet? I don't think there's such a thing as son-in-law jokes!ReplyDelete
They look like shop bought ones.ReplyDelete
