Mini-Egg Rocky Road |A Kid friendly No-Bake Make

This very sinful but tasty treat combines two of my favourite things, classic Rocky Road and Cadburys mini-eggs. It’s super easy to make a kept my son entertained and away from his Nintendo DS yesterday afternoon. 

When I shared a picture of them on Instagram it got a lot of interest so I thought I’d share the recipe. 

The basic recipe I use I came across a couple of years ago through BBC Food. I tend to change up what I add to my Rocky road depending on what I might have in the cupboards. 

I usually like to add some from of dried fruit such as glacé cherries or cranberries if it’s Christmas time, as it is nearly Easter we went with the mini eggs instead of a fruit element. 

Ingredients 

  • 200g Digestives
  • 100g Mini Marshmallows 
  • 125g Unsalted Butter
  • 3 TBL Spoons Golden Syrup
  • 200g Dark Chocolate 
  • Bag Mini Eggs

Method 

Melt the chocolate, butter and syrup in a saucepan over a low heat. Stir till smooth and remove from heat.

Break up digestive biscuits into small pieces and add to pan with the Marshmallows. (If I was using cherries I would usually add them at this point).

Mix well until everything is evenly coated with the chocolate mixture. 

Transfer to a foil lined tin, (this makes it easier to remove later as it’s can be sticky). 

Decorate with your mini eggs. 

Allow to set in fridge for at least 2hrs. 

Remove from fridge and with and dust with icing sugar. 

Lift out of pan using edges of foil, then cut into 16 pieces. 

Enjoy! Just try not to eat it all at once! I failed and ate about 3 pieces, #SorryNotSorry! 

Lush bunch of carrots reveiw – probably my most favourite ever lush product!

Hi guys! 

Today I have for you a  rave reveiw of what is probably my most favourite lush product ever! Big claim, I know. This is the bunch of carrots bubble bar, priced at £5.95

 

Not only is the bunch of carrots bubble bar visually cute, but it smells AMAZING, creates loads of bubbles, and is also good value for money. Let me tell you more. 

Bunch of carrots is different to a lot of Lush’s other bubble bars as it is reusable. Unlike the traditional bubble bar that you crumble under running water you can swirl this in, or just drop one carrot in the running water like I did, it will begin to dissolve and create tonnes of bubbles.  

   

As you can see your bath will develop into a gorgeous fragranced, orange coloured bath, with loads of bubbles. A full bath used up half a carrot, so you are going to get six baths out of this. Not bad for £5.95, when you compare to price of some other bubble bars.  

 

The fragrance as I said before is AMAZING!! This is thanks to the inclusion of buchu, lemon and grapefruit oils, it’s a very fruity uplifting fragrance, perfect for when you need something with a bit of feel good factor to it. This is definitely one for easing a grumpy day!  

 

I discovered, by accident of course, you can also pretend to be Olaf, from Frozen, if the need should take you. Ha ha! 

I shall be grabbing myself some back ups of this before Easter as it’s a limited edition product. I do not want to be without this one. 

Have you used any othe the Lush Easter products yet? What are your fave’s? 

Bye for now, Katy 🙂

Lush Immaculate Eggseption reveiw – with help from the kids!

Hi guys, so today’s post will be the first of a mini-series of reveiws, dedicated to Lush’s Easter collection. Last week I was lucky enough to attend the  #LushChelmsford blogger event, you can check out my previous post all about this by following the #Link.  Some of the products I will be reviewing I have been gifted for reveiw, and a couple I returned to store for, post launch evening, as I just had to try these out at home. 



I decided to get my boys to give me a hand testing these goodies out, they love a bit of Lush just as much as I do, particurly products with a novelty play element. 

Today’s product is the Immaculate Eggseption bath bomb, priced at £6.95. First off let’s address the price point attached to this as I probably Initially thought the same thing as what a lot of you may be thinking. “£6.95 for a bath bomb, is she for real?”  This isn’t any ordinary bath bomb though, it’s actually something very unique and special, so in my opinion worth the money. 

Why, you might be thinking? We’ll let me explain myself. Most Lush bath bombs you only get one use out of, and cost around £2.15-£3.65 each. This though used wisely, will give you three lovely smelling baths. So if you do the math, it’s actually not that bad. 



The unique novelty element to be had also provided my sons and myself with a lot of fun. Lush have come up with such a cute concept. If you break the egg in half, by lightly tapping it on the bath, inside you with find a smaller chick shaped bath bomb. How friggen cute is that ? 



We have saved this to be used another day, along with one half of the shell, which make up your three uses. 



Todays use resulted in a lovely fragrant pink coloured bath. I expect when we use the chick we will have a yellow bath, we shall see.  



If your more interested in the fragrance of you bath than novelty element you won’t be disappointed with the Immaculate eggseption either. Ingredients include vanilla absolute, and lemon and grapefruit oils for a zingy uplifting bath. Yum!!  

You can pick one of these up for yourself from Lush’s online store Here, or pop into your nearest store. I like to visit the store myself as the staff are always so friendly and helpful. 

Have you picked up anything from Lush’s new range yet? Or are you planning to? 

Bye for now, Katy 🙂
