Cherry Cripes – My First Guest Post

Cherry Cripes

Cherry Cripes, a Bit Like the Cadbury's Version, Only Available Outside of Australia

I was offered my first ever guest post recently by my friend who has had to pop back to her native Australia. I have been thinking of trying to recreate a chocolate bar that I fell in love with there, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to do so.  Please go and have a look at her blog, she is funny and a great cook as well. Add to the fact that she was a quarter finalist in Masterchef, then you know that her food is worth checking out. She blogs at Average Baker. She is being modest, she is not at all average – in either cooking or in blogging.

Anyway, it turns out that getting Cherry Ripes right, especially before the cherry season is upon us, is pretty difficult, and took me several attempts. It would also not have been possible if it weren’t for Divalicious, who recently did a post on homemade “Bounty” bars, and this really helped me out with the right texture and taste for the bars. I have linked to Diva before, for the delicious aubergine, tomato and sumac salad that she does. In case you weren’t aware, she has changed her blog name to Divalicious Recipes in the City, so now she can be found here.

I may have another go at these little bars, using real cherries and cherry compote, when I can get hold of them, but for now, this is my best attempt at Cherry Cripes, and you can read all about it here. Please do have a look, and let me know what you think. Yes, even my Aussie friends….!

    Awesome! These should keep you going until cherry season or until I visit 😀

  2. These just look delicious!

  3. These look really scrumptious! And I don’t even especially like sweet things.
    Are you doing the Sunday Market this weekend (May 6th)?
