My brother-in-law is visiting from Australia, he's wonderful with the children and amazingly helpful, but that's another story.
What's really great about him visiting, is the little gift he brought with him.
Violet Crumble, the name alone is delicious, Violet Crumble. It's like saying your secret lover's name, and they are my secret. I hide them from the children.
These chocolate covered little squares of honeycomb, come in a violet and gold bag, that looks almost good enough to eat as well. The advertising slogan on it says:
'It's the way it shatters that matters.'
And it is so true.
If you bite into them they taste good, but if you bash them with your pestle, the little pieces taste absolutely divine.
Ive eaten so many, my teeth ache and I think I've gone deaf in one ear from all the shattering.
Alas, only one more bag to go.
Must take the phone off the hook,snuggle up in bed with them and read a good book . Who needs a lover?
