That’s right, tired of waiting for Caramilk to return, I took delicious matters into my own hands. And what a result!
Cadbury has me right where it wants me – hooked and without a Caramilk source. After the teaser of Caramilk Easter eggs last month needless to say, my appetite was whet. And ever so wanting.
Now before you say it YES I KNOW Cadbury have plans to make Caramilk a regular thing. But just like Veruca Salt, I WANT IT NOW. #gimme
All this shameless pining for Cadbury’s famous golden chocolate had me turning to the people of the interwebz, madly Googling Caramilk recipe. And after a little research, trial and error, boy George I think I bloomin’ cracked the code!
Disclaimer: Caramelising chocolate is not a particularly quick thing to do, but the results are marvellous. Just sayin’. And don’t try to speed it up, it’ll end up in crumbs. Literally.
DIY Caramilk chocolate recipe
What you need:
- 180g block of Cadbury Baking White Chocolate
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- A small baking tray or loaf tin
- Chocolate mould (optional)
1. Preheat the oven to a slow 120°C. Chop the chocolate into coarse pieces and place in your tray or tin. Add the tablespoon of oil and bake for 5 minutes.
2. Using a clean, dry spatula, stir the chocolate, spreading it over the tray.
3. Repeat stirring and spreading step every 5 minutes until the colour is a light gold colour. Don’t risk going too far with it – it could seize into crumbs if overcooked! Every oven is different, but mine took 40 minutes.
4. Spoon the chocolate into moulds or spread onto a tray lined with baking paper. Put in the fridge for a few hours to set before devouring and being SUPER SMUG with yourself.
There you have it, that’s all you require to make your own Caramilk inspired chocolate at home – it’ll make that wait for the real deal all the sweeter for sure!
