I've used kaura keks and digestive biscuits successfully. I prefer the kaura keks. That's just my opinion, of course.

graham crackers

Post by Cynde » Fri Nov 18, 2005 11:04 pm

Yes, I would use digestives and maybe add a little cinnamon to a recipe. If you want to eat them straight try putting sugar on top and cinnamon and putting them in the oven for few minutes. Or try these http://www.preparedpantry.com/honeygrahm.htm and http://homecooking.about.com/library/ar ... okie69.htm. I have learned to make a lot of things in my time!
Good luck!

Sorry, didn't realize it would bug you so much. I'll try to be more careful in the future.

^^ OH god!! thank you so much for this. haha. i am really craving to make a very simple treat but my main ingredient is nowhere to be found. now i know. thank you so much.

By the way, it is basically a combination of cream and condensed milk mix togehter and some chocoloate syrup. I don't know how this is called but I crave for it since there is no shops who sell it here.

Is this where the lines starts, I can show you how to make a real good hot fudge with real ingredients no artificial stuff. Ive found a chocolate that tastes
just like semisweet chocolate chips, I compared them to the trader joes brand I brought with me. Its in our local grocery stores here in finland.

Are you talking about Minut Block? Why not just share the product and don't make everything a big secret.

Sorry to keep you in suspense since this is userface's topic I didn't want to interfere, besides I only like to share when others are interested.
If your refering the the chocolate its the Generic dark chocolate sold at all K stores, it has a red wrapper I forget the name(I haven't had my chocolate fix yet today).
Im up in Tampere, enjoying the christmas lites right now so I can't post a picture until I go back to Hel. on Monday.

I was so upset about the absence of graham crackers in this country, i almost packed up and left. IT'S SIMPLY INHUMANE! I havne't quite got over it yet, so please don't make me talk about it anymore. I can't even hold my head up straight. My world has turned into a crumbled mess of cinamon and digestive cookies, and it's.. it's.. *sigh*... I don't know. I guess that's just how the cookie crumbles. POORLY, BAH!

Fazer has "taloussuklaa" that'd fit the description. I love that stuff.

If one goes to Lidl they have some chocklates that are very dark & bitter (almost too bitter)

Mmmm. I had this chocolate from france one time. It was dark chocolate and i swear it didn't have an ounce of sugar in it. It was truly disgusting. To top it all off, it was filled with coffee grinds. It was so aweful i wanted to gag after the first bite. My teeth were black...but then.. i had to have more. AND MORE AND MORE, and ate the thre bars i had. Now, every time i eat chocolate, i think of my former dark french mistress......

I've had these chocklate-covered coffee beans. Taste vile, but the fix...
