Me and my wife we making mean laughs about an overweight friend of ours the other day - suggesting that he's so fat he'd put sweets into a toasted sandwich.
The conversation grew in detail - the sweets would be four sticks of fudge, and there would be white bread and butter. Possibly ice cream if it was a special occasion. Like a breakfast or something.
I mention this to a few people and I hear back the same thing, "but... that... sounds yummy". And most of my friends aren't even that fat.
And so, for the joy of the internet, it seems inevitable that I'd have to try making this.
Such a lightweight, I only buy two sticks of fudge, scared I'll damage the toaster with oodles of hot melted chocolate and fudge
Aren't they pretty all laid out?
Forget toasting this shit - let's eat it already
The dark bubbling stuff is chocolate
The kind of stuff Delia Smith cooks these days
And it's almost yummy. The sugar caramelised and it's dreadfully sweet if slightly burnt tasting. It's certainly eatable, not unpleasant and would make you extremely fat.
When buying the fudge we couldn't resist getting a few more sweets. Just for the sheer joy of putting ridiculous things in a sandwich toaster.
Yep, Opal Fruits, not a Marathon bar
A beauty shot
And into the toaster they go
Toasted up a treat - no drips
All the cubes melt, leaving a rainbow of colours
Taste? Like cheap, very sweet apricot jam. Quite chemically, but edible. Kids might like it
OK, here's the climax. Haribo. Toasted Haribo. Get your chops around this, internet fatties.
Beautiful, but oh so toxic
Into the nasty little oven
Bubbles out and smells disgusting
Melted into a sugar and bread paste without much colour, and had the odour of a chemical accident
This is the bit I spat out. It's like Nutella made from Cillit Bang. God. I can still taste it now. Bleugh. Never again. Ooh, and a bit of spittle for Dogme 95 authenticity
