I had a lovely surprise on my birthday - well I had lots of lovely surprises, but just this one I'll tell you about today.
I was given the above box by Son 2 - locked up with a padlock. He likes making boxes and filling them with home-made items for birthday's so that was no surprise. However on opening the said box I was surprised. There, in individual cup-cake cases were what looked like splodges of uncooked cake batter. He laughed as I looked in utter amazement. How had he made them without me knowing? What were they? Were they edible, did they need baking? I didn't dare come out with too many questions as he was watching for my delight (as well as enjoying my amazement!) . So in fear and trepidation I cautiously scooped a little on my finger and licked. Wow! It was delicious. Creamy, smooth, melt in the mouth texture. At this point he informed me that they were his own invented GAPS 'Chocolate Melts'.
He kept them over night in a cool bag with an ice-pack so that I didn't discover them in the fridge, so they were very squidgy and we couldn't wait to firm them up, naughtily eating one before breakfast! I made him make them again this weekend and we tried freezing them. They didn't go quite hard but they were firm and definitely melted in the mouth.
Here is the recipe:
