Cadbury Caramilk

The latest hype in the supermarket this month appears to be Cadbury’s Caramilk from their New Zealand branch and I was determined to try it to see what the hype is all about.

I’ll confess that I am not a huge fan of Cadbury chocolate, I always find it so sweet, but because internet star Christian Hull said it was amazing, I had to try it for myself. Despite people complaining that they had trouble finding it, I managed to find it at Coles.

Cadbury Caramilk is essentially caramelised white chocolate and it was previously only sold in New Zealand and now Coles and Woolworths in Australia have been stocking limited quantities of the chocolate.

My friend and I had tried the chocolate at the same time, I chose this particular friend because he is a huge Cadbury fan. We both agreed that although the chocolate was creamy, the chocolate was just too sweet and honestly nothing special. We both felt so disappointed.

I felt really sad that I didn’t like it, I honestly wanted to, but it wasn’t for my liking.

Cadbury Caramilk costs $5 and is available from Woolworths, Coles and some independent supermarkets. It is currently on sale at Coles for $3.

Cinnamon sugar candied nuts

I love cinnamon sugar, it is just one of many sweet things that I adore, I believe that cinnamon sugar works well in any baking recipe. I had tonnes of raw macadamia and raw pecan nuts sitting in my pantry (my mum went crazy buying me tonnes), so I thought why not make some cinnamon sugar candied nuts.

The idea of cinnamon sugar candied nuts just sounded delicious, I assumed that they’d taste like the ones that from the nut shops that you’d buy. I searched for a recipe and I found one that was nice and easy.

The recipe was pretty easy to follow, however in one instance I forgot to turn them over (I blame my toddler). Once the nuts were baked, I let them cool and resisted the urge to eat one.

The cinnamon sugar candied nuts tasted so delicious, it really gave the nuts a nice crunch to them and the nuts itself tasted like they just had been roasted.

I decided to share the cinnamon sugar candied nuts with my dad and he loved them.

This recipe is so dangerously easy to make and so delicious.
