Ok so I was going to make some sugar-free Ferrero Rochers from Sarah Wilson’s blog the other night but when I went to Holland and Barratt they didn’t have any Rice Malt Syrup or vanilla powder (I’ve Tweeted them to ask why!!!) so I decided to make matters into my own hands and conjure up my own recipe. And so here it is… The JC (JESUS CHRIST) nut clusters. Yeeeee haaaaa!
I am by no means a chef or a baker, in fact I can’t really cook at all. I don’t have the proper utensils either so I like to just improvise instead and just chuck everything in and see what happens… WAY more exciting that way! This is what happened… Probably costs about £10 to make two trays of these BAD BOYS but they last ages and they’re divine! (I lie, not sure they last ages as I might eat them all this weekend!) I don’t actually have a food blender so I just used a hand one. Be careful as the nuts tend to fly… across the room!
They’re not totally sugar free but the 85% chocolate is one of the highest you’ll get in a normal shop so it’s the lowest of the low sugar wise! Plus everyone deserves a treat so this is one of the healthiest and tastiest going!
These are so easy to make and mine are currently in the freezer. I like things from the freezer or alternatively you could have one of two after dinner with a glass of Rioja!
Ok so here’s what I put into these JC (JESUS CHRIST) nut clusters
cinnamon (few shakes into melted chocolate)
teaspoon of ground coffee (made that up myself)
1 tablespoon of raw cocoa (optional)
Try them, they’re divine! Put them in the freezer. Then bring them to work and have them as a treat in the afternoon with tea. Or a weekend treat with coffee or an after dinner treat!
Me and JC (JESUS CHRIST) got it going ONNNNNN!
