Your Favourite Snacks – PIMPED!!
Pimping out snack foods has become a culinary pass time on both sides of the pond. The idea is to take your favorite snack food such as a Cadbury’s Creme Egg and supersize it until it has similar dimensions to a rugby ball or an English contry table. These culinary Dr. Frankenstein’s have taken to competing with each other via the social media websites, seeing who can make the biggest, and tastiest, as well as the most realistic looking snack.
1. Cadbury’s Creme Egg
To make a pimp sized Cadbury’s Creme Egg, one needs the following ingredients, 1.5 kg of Cadbury milk chocolate, 3 pounds of granulated sugar, two 140 gram bottles of liquid glucose, as well as red and yellow food coloring, not to mention a giant plastic egg mold, which can, of course, be purchased on the Internet. In total, this project weighs in at 13.62 pounds, and it takes several days for the monumental engineering project to be completed. First you must melt the chocolate and paint it inside the Easter egg mold. This must be done several times with several layers of chocolate to achieve the proper thickness. Once this is done, and the two halves of the egg are set, the secret cream filling (recipes for which are available on the Internet) is put inside the egg the two halves of the plastic egg are brought together and sealed with a little bit more of the famous Cadbury chocolate sauce, at which point the mold is placed in the refrigerator or freezer. The next day you will have a Cadbury Egg that the Easter Bunny himself would be happy to have in his basket. You can also go the extra mile and artistically carve the famous star pattern into the egg to realy finish up the project.
2. Giant Kit-Kat
As the saying goes, everything is bigger in America, snack foods are no exception. Here is a gentleman that is credited with creating the largest kit-kat bar known to man. This is actual a fusion between a Snickers and Kit Kat (known as the big cat). All the same enthusiasm and attention to detail as the manufacturers of the smaller counterparts went into the biggger version. There is enough chocolate in one of these desserts to put five people into a diabetic coma.
3. Giant Doughnuts
Giant doughnuts have also been attempted and produced successfully.
4. Oreo cookies.
5. Chocolate chip cookies
6. Ferrero Rocher
