Thanks everybody :redface: :gflower:
Now let the fun begin with some party snacks...
Amarula Fudge

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 tbs cocoa powder
3 tbs cornstarch
1 cup Amarula cream liqueur
¼ tsp salt
3 tbs unsalted butter - if you use salted then leave out the ¼ tsp salt
3 tbs peanut butter

On top of stove at low heat, mix the first 6 ingredients until smooth and slightly thickened.
Add the butter and peanut butter.
Stir until smooth.
It will start to thicken pretty quickly.
Pour into a greased square pan.
Cool at room temperature then cover and put in fridge.
Cut into little squares


Hope you guys enjoy this :twisted:

Amarula Coffee

Open the amarula and take a swig to ensure it has not gone off.
Repeat until absolutely sure.
Boil the kettle.
Put coffee in mug.
Get milk & sugar ready.
Pour boiling water into mug 3 quarters up.
Fill mug with amarula.
Have another swig of amarula to ensure there is enough for next time. If not, finish the bottle and pour a little milk into it. Swish it around and drink it.
Put sugar & milk away.
Switch telly onto rugby/football/cricket.
Enjoy coffee.
Whatever (according to BB): "You are correct but I don't want to admit it".
