Self-Bribing

I have an internal conflict erupting in my head. I want to make this yummy little dessert, a recipe penned by noneother than Camilla "The Rotweiler" Parker-Bowles, aka HRH Dutchess of Cornwall (or something)...but it doesn't really go with the Slimmer Olivia Program. Maybe I'll let myself make it if I run my 4m tonight...


Camilla's cake
Mars Fridge Cake
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall

  • 1 stick butter
  • ¼ c super fine sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 Mars bars (or any other favourite chocolate bar), diced
  • 1 c graham crackers or animal crackers, crushed
  • ¼ c dried cherries (optional)
  • ¼ c chopped pecans (optional)

METHOD:Melt the butter with the sugar, vanilla and cocoa. Remove from heat and stir in the egg, then place back over gentle heat and stir continuously to thicken (stir a LOT so you don’t get scrambled eggs). Remove from heat and mix in the crackers, cherries, nuts and lastly the Mars bar pieces. Press into a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Cover and chill. When firm cut into fingers, which can be topped with melted chocolate for an even more indulgent treat!
