I brought this into work the other day and it was so popular I am going to make a second batch! Here it is (recipe follows):
2tblsp golden syrup
125g milk chocolate
2oog Malteasers (halved or smashed)
250g milk chocolate
Line cookie tin with greaseproof paper. Melt butter, golden syrup and 125g milk chocolate. Crush digestive biscuits and add to the melted mixture. Cut Malteasers in half or smash them if you’re feeling lazy! Add these to your mixture and mix well. Spread in tin. Cool in the fridge for 30 mins. Then for the topping, melt 250g milk chocolate and spread over the top. Top with marshmallows (optional).
My last post was about my favourite female rockers. Continuing the rock and metal theme, this post is about my favourite radio station, otherwise known as Planet Rock (slogan: Where Rock Lives). Planet Rock is a UK-based station, but can be heard online, on DAB digital radio, on your TV and through your mobile. At the minute I listen online through internetradiouk.com (handy for occasional boredom busting during work!) or very occasionally on TV (Sky 0110). My favourite DJs at Planet Rock are Wyatt, Darren Redick, Danny Bowes (singer with Thunder), Alice Cooper and Joe Elliott (singer with Def Leppard).
Some of the music I heard during the week came from Blackberry Smoke, AC/DC, Metallica, Thin Lizzy, Halestorm, The Treatment, Boston, The Kinks, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin, Black Stone Cherry, Whitesnake, UFO, Deep Purple, Guns N Roses, Jimi Hendrix and Motley Crue, among many many others. I started listening to the station last year and it definitely plays my kind of music – would listen to it all day if I could. I will have to wait until the TuneIn radio app has an update though; I have this app on my iPhone and iPad but Planet Rock is not on it (sort this out ASAP guys!!!). I am a proud Planet Rock listener!
