How to Make Honeycomb - quick and easy honeycomb recipe! Whether you decide to coat these little wonders with chocolate or just have them plain, honeycomb is just super yummy.
Ingredients
  • 75ml Water
  • 320ml Caster sugar
  • 120ml Corn syrup, Lyle's Golden Syrup, or glucose syrup
  • ⅛ tsp Cream of tartar
  • 5ml White vinegar
  • 7.5ml Bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • Chocolate to coat (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place the corn syrup or Lyles golden syrup or glucose syrup, caster sugar, cream of tartar, white wine vinegar and water in a deep pot.
  2. Half fill a large pan with water at room temperature.
  3. Place the pot over medium high heat and stir the mixture until the sugar has dissolved and everything is well combined.
  4. Bring the mixture up to 300f or 154c. To judge this you will need to use a candy thermometer or an infrared thermometer.
  5. While the mixture heats up, line an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with baking parchment.
  6. As the mixture comes to the correct temperature, remove the pot from the heat and carefully lower it into the pan of water.
  7. Add the bicarbonate of soda and whisk this into the mixture.
  8. The mixture will froth up like a volcano.... this is why you need a deep pot.
  9. The cooling bath cools the mixture just enough to ensure a nice fine texture of bubble in the honeycomb.
  10. Remove the pot from the cooling bath and pour the honeycomb into the lined baking pan. Quickly level off the surface and put this aside to set.
  11. Once the mixture has set solid, turn it out from the pan.
  12. Use your meat mallet and a butter knife as a chisel to fracture the honeycomb into bite sized pieces.
  13. And there it is.... a beautifully finely texture honeycomb to add a little sweetness to the beginning of your new year.

These deep-fried super-cheesy bites are insanely good. Strong blue cheese and fruit jam enclosed in American cheese slices then crumbed a deep-fried results in the most amazing sweet savory flavor and texture combination.
Ingredients
  • 16 Slices American processed cheese
  • 3 Heaping tablespoons fruit preserve / jam
  • 80g Creamy blue cheese
  • 250ml Fine bread crumbs
  • 250ml All-purpose flour
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • Oil for deep-frying
Instructions
  1. You will need 16 slices of American cheese. For those not in North America, this the processed cheese slices that come individually wrapped in plastic sheets.
  2. In addition, measure out 3 heaping tablespoon of a good quality fruit preserve and open a block of creamy blue cheese.
  3. You will also need an 8cm, or just more than 3 inch gow gee press. These are readily available on eBay and Amazon for next to nothing.
  4. To start assembling, open a cheese slice and keeping the plastic wrapper in place, use the back of the press to cut out the circle then position the circle over the press.
  5. Place ⅔ of a teaspoon of the preserve in the center of the cheese, followed by a small piece of blue cheese.
  6. Grab the handles of the press and close this just firmly enough to seal the edges of the cheese. If you press to hard, the cheese will split.
  7. Continue until all of the cheesy bites are formed.
  8. To coat the bites, measure out a cup of all-purpose flour, a cup of fine bread crumbs, and whisk 2 eggs.
  9. Sprinkle a layer of breadcrumbs over a large platter. This is where the coated cheesy bites will set, and the crumbs prevent the coating from sticking to the platter and getting damaged.
  10. Working with cheesy bite at a time, dredge the bite in the flour.
  11. Transfer this to the egg to wet all of the flour.
  12. Then it's into the bread crumbs to get a good solid coating all over.
  13. Transfer this to the platter to set, and continue with the remaining pockets.
  14. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes.
  15. Half fill a large pan with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  16. Carefully drop the cheesy bites into the oil and fry these for 3 minutes, turning over halfway through.
  17. As the first cheesy bites are ready, use a slotted spoon to remove them from oil, and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  18. Serve the bites immediately accompanied with whipped cream and a good dessert wine.
  19. And there we have it, a crunchy, creamy, sweet and savory taste of heaven.

Recipe type: Dessert
 
Waffles are certainly among the most well known desserts and comfort foods served in high end and low end establishments across the world. Making a waffle is really easy, but making a great waffle takes a couple of extra steps.
Ingredients
  • 285g All purpose flour
  • 10ml Baking powder
  • 2.5ml Salt
  • 15ml Caster sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 105g Butter
  • 360ml Full cream milk
Instructions
  1. Sift the all-purpose flour, baking powder and caster sugar into a mixing bowl.
  2. Separate the eggs into 2 jugs, measure out the milk and melt the butter in your microwave.
  3. Pour the egg whites into your processor with whisk attached. Whisk the whites until nice and frothy and the whisk is starting to leave trails in the egg.
  4. Pour the white from the mixer into another bowl.
  5. Return the bowl to the mixer and add the egg yolks. Whisk these for a minute until well mixed then add the milk and melted butter. Stir this in thoroughly.
  6. Pour this into the flour mixture and stir it in briefly. Don't mix this until smooth. You want it to be mixed through but the batter must have a pebbly texture.
  7. Pour in the egg white and fold this in briefly until just combined.
  8. Heat your waffle iron following the manufacturers instructions. When the ready light comes on, pour in the require amount of batter for your machine.
  9. Very shortly after closing the iron large amounts of steam will rise from the machine. This steam will tell you when the waffle is ready, not the lights on the machine.
  10. After a few minutes the steam will almost stop... the waffles are ready to remove. Remove the waffles and continue with the remaining batter.
  11. Whisking the egg whites separately, using extra butter and following the steam signals will have you on the road to awesomely crispy, golden waffles.
  12. This recipe will make 12-16 Belgian style waffles.

After a week on the road, I'm back, and just in time for a delicious Mother's Day treat. Coconut chocolate dipped Madeleines are super-quick and easy to make. Traditionally baked in a scalloped Madeleine pan, you can also use mini muffin pan if you don't have the real thing.

  12. Remove the Madeleines from the oven and transfer them to cooling racks. Allow them to cool completely before continuing.

A good meringue is hard to find.... crispy on the outside and soft and squishy on the inside. This recipe takes the mystery out of how to make perfect meringues.
Ingredients
  • 6 Large egg whites
  • 350g Caster sugar
  • 2.5ml Salt
Instructions
  1. Place the egg whites and salt in your mixer bowl. Fit the whisk to your machine and whisk on low speed for 60 seconds.
  2. Increase the speed to medium-high and whisk until the egg holds a peak.
  3. Turn the machine speed to high and gradually add the caster sugar one tablespoonful at a time.
  4. Once all of the caster sugar is added allow the machine to continue whisking until the mixture is thick and glossy. This process can take anything from 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how efficient your mixer is.
  5. Line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment and load the meringue mixture into a piping bag. Pipe the meringue rounds onto the parchment, leaving a little space between each.
  6. To make dessert cups or baskets, pipe the base of the basket to a diameter of 90mm, or 3.5 inches, then continue piping over the outside ring to build a wall.
  7. Bake the meringues in a preheated oven at 140c or 284f for 30 to 40 minutes and the color has darkened slightly.
  8. Allow the meringues to cool in the oven with door slightly open.
  9. Store the meringues in an air-tight container as they will soften due to humidity.

Silicone Molded Chocolate Cups - How to Mold Chocolate Cups in Silicone Muffin Molds
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert / Chocolate
 
Over Valentine's we showed you how to make elegant balloon molded chocolate cups. Today we're looking at how to make a similar cup using silicone muffin molds.
Ingredients
  • Compound / Cooking chocolate
Instructions
  1. I am using compound or cooking chocolate. It is ideal for these types of projects as it has a higher melting point and does not require tempering.
  2. Melt the chocolate in your melting pot, or in s double boiler or even in your microwave 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating.
  3. Pour enough chocolate into the first silicone muffin cup to fill it 2 thirds. Lift the cup and pour the chocolate into the second cup.
  4. Continue with this process until all of the cups are coated. As you go the quantity of chocolate will be depleted and you will need to swirl the last few cups around to get the same coating level. After each pouring, scrape the edges of the muffin cups clean using the back of a knife.
  5. Transfer the cups to your refrigerator for 10 minutes to set.
  6. Remove the cups from the fridge and repeat the coating process again.
  7. Return the cups to the fridge to set once more.
  8. After 10 minutes the chocolate will be set. Loosen the edge of the silicone muffin cup from the raised edge of the chocolate. Start turning the entire silicone mold inside out out to free the chocolate cup.
  9. And there it is, perfectly molded chocolate cups with a raised edge that acts as a handle. You can fill these with anything fom chocolate mousse to brandy soaked fruit and cream.

Valentine's Day Chocolate Balloon Bowls - How to Make Chocolate Balloon Bowls at Home!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Valentines day is just round the corner. Chocolate balloon cups are a novel way to present your special dessert. In this video we look at making the 3 Basic Shapes of Balloon Bowl, or cups.
Ingredients
  • 250g Compound / cooking chocolate
  • Mini-size water balloons
Instructions
  1. Melt the chocolate in your melting pot, or in a double boiler. You can also do this in a microwave by heating it for 15 seconds at a time, stirring well between each heating.
  2. I am using compound chocolate, or cooking chocolate which is perfect for this as it does not require tempering.
  3. The chocolate will melt smooth at just over 40c or 104f. Pour the chocolate into a cold bowl and stir briefly. Allow the chocolate to cool to 28c or 83f.
  4. While the chocolate cools, line a baking sheet with parchment, and inflate as many miniature water balloons as you require.
  5. By this stage the chocolate will have cooled sufficiently.
  6. For the first and simplest shape, dunk a balloon into the chocolate end first. Use a teaspoon to spread a small circle of chocolate on the parchment then transfer the coated balloon to this spot.
  7. Use the teaspoon to make a second spot. Dunk another balloon in the chocolate end first. Holding it in the chocolate, tilt the balloon north, then south, then east then west. This will result in a petal shaped cup. Transfer the balloon to its spot.
  8. Use the teaspoon to make a slightly elongated spot on the parchment. Dunk the third balloon in the chocolate while holding it sideways. This will give you a pear shaped bowl.
  9. Transfer this to its spot.
  10. Place the tray in your refrigerator for 10 to 15 minutes to set.
  11. Once set, you need to deflate the balloons. The trick is to deflate them slowly otherwise the chocolate will crack. Pinch some of the balloon near the and snip a hole in the balloon above your fingers. Let the air escape slowly and pull the balloon free. Repeat this with the remaining balloons.
  12. You can fill you cups with anything you like. Here I am simply piping whipped cream and adding strawberries.
