FLUFFNUT Cupcakes #NumNomsCrazyCreation


We've been getting creative in the kitchen with NumNoms for their latest food campaign 
#NumNomsCrazyCreation


We’ve seen the Cronut (donut and croissant combination), a genius idea, which brought together two of our favourite pastry items into one amazing desert. 
Next it was the turn of green tea cake, for the slightly more health conscious, which saw a refreshing cake born from a popular hot beverage. 
More recently, Marks and Spencer introduced the Croloaf, a loaf of bread make out of croissants 


When thinking of ideas for our creations, we sat down with all our NumNoms on the table and picked out our favourites.....

The over all winners were ....
Cherry Ann (doughnut type)
Softy Mallow (marshmallow type)
Nana Heart (Candy Num)

So from them we decided to make......

FLUFFNUT CUPCAKES!


RECIPE:

Mini Ring Doughnuts,
Fluff Spread
Love hearts.

The no bake cupcakes, that are just perfect for doing with the little ones.
Beware you can get rather sticky!!!


The end result was pretty epic!
They looked really sweet and tasted amazing, I could have eaten all of them!

They were easy and super quick to put together and everyone got involved.

The boys and myself were all really impressed with our creative make and I know it will be requested the next time I go shopping.

Make Your Own Chocolate Lollies This Easter.

Everyone enjoys Easter eggs at Easter but why not change things up a little and make your own lollies to give out to friends and family?!


We were recently sent the Chocolate Lolly Maker from John Adams to have a go with and see how good our lolly making skills were.

Inside the box you have everything you need minus the chocolate to make the lollies,
Lolly Wrapper Unit
4x Lolly moulds - hearts, flower, bunny and pony
2x lolly mould holders
8x message moulds
Chocolate melting unit
Spoon and stirrer
Re-usable sticks
Gift bags for wrapping
Ribbons.


We used milk chocolate chips to make our lollies.
We filled the chocolate melting station with hot water from the tap and the boys each took a turn in stirring the chocolate until it melted.


The boys each picked a mould and a secret message and then poured on the chocolate using the spoon provided.
We then placed them in the fridge, but if you place them in the freezer you'll get better results.


After half an hour the lollies were done and ready to wrap up.

The boys were telling me how they wanted to make some for their teachers, but they had to make sure they were 100% tasty before handing them out.

They turned out really well and we were all really impressed with them.
The boys wrapped up their lollies and made me tie the ribbon around them before heading out into the garden to have a taste test.


All the boys gave their lollies a thumbs up and now Alex and Oscar are keen for me go and buy some more chocolate chips so they can make some more ready to hand out to family over Easter.


So if your after gifting something different this year, definitely try out the John Adams Chocolate Lolly maker.

You can buy one from The Entertainer for £20
