Nice one Charlie. Good pic Godiva Girl. Easy peasy , all the family loved it. Use brown caster sugar if you havent got demerara or soft dark brown. probalby works well with maple syrup too - 01 Jul 2015


The end product was delicious, however it is a little messy to prepare. The recipe makes it sound very easy and mess free. If you aren't careful the sugar will catch on fire. - 24 Jul 2008
