The lovely Rachel Allen was making these bars on her show and they just looked so delish I had to make them to wow my family at Xmas. So, naturally, when under pressure, the whole things failed b/c I didn't think it through. ( Here's the recipe:Collapse )
Anyway, the thing was a disaster. The base was rock hard and the caramel layer was way way way too liquidy. Added arrow root to no avail, and in the end I chucked in all of the chocolate of the top layer in an attempt to thicken it, which helped a bit, but not enough. Had I had more chocolate, I would've put that in. But I was out of chocolate and out of time, so I chucked the whole thing aside.
Now my question is: what can I still do with this mixture? I have a saucepan filled with a gooey chocolatey goo, being the ingredients of caramel layer + 200 gr of dark choc. It's really really extremely sweet. I was thinking if maybe I can throw in some flour & stuff, maybe I can still turn it in to something worth eating?
I'm sure one of you has an eye for these kinds of things. Help?
Thanks in advance!
