I said yesterday I hadn’t had a chance to play with my new toy yet:
But I have now! The blender was such a bargain too; a few weeks ago, my mum was asking what I wanted for Christmas and I said I thought a blender would be really good. She went on to Amazon to show me the one she’s got (the same one) and we saw it had been reduced from £99.99 to, wait for it, £21.99!
She ordered it pretty quickly… and it’s amazing how good a bargain like that is, even if you’re not the one that’s saved the cash 🙂
So today I had time, all I needed was something to blend… and it didn’t take long to come up with a solution…
I bought some Dark Chocolate Dreams when I went to Whole Foods in October – and was hooked. So the jar didn’t last too long and I can’t get it anywhere else. I did find it on Amazon – and ordered some quicker than you can say “yum” – but then got a helpful email saying they were out of stock and didn’t know when they’d get more 😦
And as even I’m not greedy enough to go to north London just for Dark Chocolate Dreams, I had to do something else.
It doesn’t take a mathematical genius to work out the equation:
(–Dark Chocolate Dreams) + peanut butter + dark chocolate + new blender = heaven!
I used 150g peanut butter, 60g dark chocolate chips and a splash of vanilla essence. It came out more liquid-y than the original – and of course didn’t taste exactly the same – but… it’ll (definitely) do. Delicious.
And, as I’m incapable of throwing anything away, I even had an appropriate jar to put it in 🙂
That’ll go down a treat tomorrow morning, on some toasted banana bread – to ease the return to work! Is anyone else back yet, or are most people off till next week?
