Childhood favourite fairy bread gets a cocktail makeover with the addition of Baileys and vodka – cheers to that!
What you’ll need.
120 grams of chopped white chocolate
2 slices of white bread
2 tablespoons of mixed coloured sprinkles
Red gel food colouring to tint
6 Ice cubes
185 ml or ¾ of a cup of thickened cream.
80 ml or 1/3 of a cup of baileys irish cream
60 ml or ¼ of a cup of vodka
How to make it.
· Step 1
Place 2 serving glasses in the freezer to chill. Place 50g chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High for 40 seconds or until melted and smooth. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool.
· Step 2
Spread 2 teaspoons of the melted chocolate over 1 side of each bread slice. Sprinkle 1 bread slice with 3 teaspoons of the sprinkles. Sandwich with the remaining bread slice, chocolate-side down. Use a 3cm round pastry cutter to cut 4 rounds from the sandwich. Thread sandwich rounds onto 2 toothpicks.
· Step 3
Use the food colouring to tint remaining melted chocolate pink. Transfer to a plate. Place remaining sprinkles on a separate plate. Dip the rim of each glass into the chocolate then in sprinkles to coat. Return glasses to the freezer until needed.
· Step 4
Meanwhile, place remaining chocolate and 60ml (1/4 cup) thickened cream in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High for 1 minute or until melted and smooth. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool.
· Step 5
Place ice cubes in a cocktail shaker. Pour in the chocolate mixture, liqueur, vodka and remaining cream. Secure lid on shaker. Shake until well combined. Pour into prepared glasses. Serve immediately with fairy bread skewers.
