Alrighty....Further to my previous blog entry, about nachos of a different kind, I am pleased to report that I have infact made them.

These were my ingredients:

Plain crisps
Whipped Cream
Chocolate Mousse

And here is the final result:


See the video footage HERE!!

Over all, the taste was delicious.

I think perhaps, I should have either made a smaller serving for just the two of us, or perhaps invited another 6 people over to try it.

After a while, it was rather sickening, even for me, so no, we did not eat it all. Shame about the waste - I hate wasting food!

The M&M's when cooked, developed a rather scrumptious nutty taste to them and upon entry in your mouth, had a little chocolatey explosion right on your tongue - a must-do experience for all chocolate lovers.

There were concerns about whether or not the chips would go a bit funky, and perhaps "over cooked" but they stayed pretty much exactly as they were, there was no real change to their taste or texture. Their salty, savouryness mixed very well with the sweetness of the marshies and M&Ms.
As a fan of the sweet/savoury combination, I was very pleased with this result.

I would perhaps trial the smaller style marshmallows next time, as the large ones I used became extremely gooey and sticky, but it did make it a very fun dish overall.

Anyway, I highly recommend giving it a try, if you're game enough, and if you do, please let me know how you go and if you make any adaptations, also let me know as Id be interested as to other ways people are enjoying their nachos....of a different kind.

Nachos Anyone?

I want to make nachos......of a different kind.

I just had some weird ass visualisation of a savoury/sweet alternative to nachos...

Instead of corn chips    potato chips (like plain crisps - or possibly kettle for extra crunch)

Instead of beef    marshmallows (pink AND white...cause I'm such a rebel)

Instead of beans  →  M&M's (as much as I love peanut m&m's, I'd suggest just sticking to plain for this recipe)

Instead of guacamole  →  caramel sauce (though I'm not sure if I'm 100% about this alternative and am open to suggestions)

Instead of sour cream  →  whipped cream (the spray-out-of-a-can kind, cause it's the best)

On an oven-proof tray, layer the crisps, then layer the marshmallows and sprinkle with m&m's.

Place tray in a pre-heated oven (about 150) and bake for 10-15 minutes (keep an eye on your melting marshmallows -  as a result, time may vary. Just use common sense).

Allow to cool slightly before serving with whipped cream and caramel sauce.

(FTR: I have not yet attempted this....but when I do, I will be sure to update)
