Strawberry Angel Delight Roses (with crunchy chocolate bottoms)
Aren’t these pretty? They’re easy too and very open to customisation depending on what’s in the cupboard. I think they would be equally great for a pretty afternoon tea, a kids party, or a picnic. If eaten frozen they taste a lot like strawberry mini-milk lollies, which are one of my favourite things ever.
Update: I’ve been asked where you can get the moulds from. Mine were from Pampered Chef, but are discontinued, so I’m recommending siliconemoulds.com. I have purchased from them before and they are excellent.
Angel Delight Roses with crunchy chocolate bottoms
(I really need a better name for them – suggestions?)
1x packet of angel delight
A large handful granola/oats of a flavour you like the sound of - I used Dorset Cereals dark chocolate and macadmia granola which is brilliant as it uses really dark, fairtrade chocolate with crunchy seeds and big juicy macadamia nuts
A knob of butter
1 heaped tsp dark brown sugar
1 heaped tsp golden syrup
Make the Angel Delight up slightly thicker than normal and pour into a pretty mould or muffin tin leaving a 1cm gap at the top. Put in fridge to start to set.
Melt butter, sugar, syrup in microwave and stir in the granola. It shouldn’t be too liquidy, you want it to set hard. If in doubt, add more granola.
Leave to cool for a few moments and then spoon onto the top of the the angle delight. Press down a tiny bit to make them flat.
Put in the freezer to set fully (they won’t come out of the mould cleanly otherwise)
For a picnic – carry them frozen and they will gradually defrost on the way. They do hold their shape.
At home – take out about 1 hr before and leave on the side to defrost, or longer in the fridge.
Or, eat frozen as ice-cream with come hot chocolate sauce.
I’m also going to see if I can sneak them into Tea Time Treats which is all about Picnic Pies this month at What Kate Baked…they have a base and a filling and they’d be good for a picnic…reckon I can get away with it?!
Thanks to Dorset Cereals for sending me 4 boxes of their granolas. I’m a massive fan already. They didn’t ask me to write anything nice about them. I just happened to want to!
