BISCUIT SUSHI

Cost: £1.43 (makes 20 sushi rolls, 7p per roll)

Ingredients

  • 2 x Cookies & Cream
  • 2 x Bourbon Creams
  • 1 x Custard Creams

Method

• Break the biscuits in half and separate the biscuit from the cream (use a knife to scrape it off).

• Put the biscuits in one bowl and the cream in another.

• Add 2 TBSP milk (your choice) to the cream and mix until it’s thick. Add a little more if needed.

• Add the biscuits to a food processor and blend to fine crumbs.

• Add 4-5 TBSP milk and blend/mix until it forms a doughy consistency (add more milk bit by bit if necessary).

• Roll the biscuit dough into a ball and place on top of cling film.

• Press the dough into a rough rectangular shape.

• Put more clingfilm on top so it fully covers the biscuit dough with room around the edges then use a rolling pin to roll to about 0.5mm thick.

• Cut the edges so that you have a clean rectangle shape.

• Spread your cream on top, covering the whole rectangle shape then, starting from the top, either use the cling film or your hands to roll it downwards. Take care and make sure it’s tight!

• Cut it into even pieces and enjoy!

• (optional – melt some chocolate to use as a dipping sauce)

BLONDIE BISCOFF SUSHI ROLLS

Cost: £8.08 (makes 20 sushi rolls, 40p per roll)

Ingredients

  • Homemade blondie (250g butter, 150g light brown sugar ,125g caster sugar, 2 eggs, 1½ tsp vanilla extract, 300g plain flour)
  • Biscuit Spread
  • 3 triple chocolate cookies, crushed
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder

Method

• Preheat the oven to 190C.

• For the homemade blondie, melt the butter with the sugar in a saucepan until the mixture turns a creamy toffee colour.

• Whisk the eggs and vanilla in a large bowl then whisk in the cooled butter/sugar mixture until combined, then add the flour.

• Pour the batter into a lined square tin and bake for 25 minutes. The blondie needs to still be slightly soft gooey in the middle.

• Once the blondie is out of the oven and cool, blitz into sticky crumbs.

• Put the blondie on some cling film in the shape of a rectangle (like the rice in your sushi roll).

• About an inch from the edge, blob a generous stripe of biscuit spread (along the long side of the rectangle).

• Now roll the batter up like a sushi roll / burrito, twisting the ends of the clingfilm to tighten.

• Put in the fridge to slightly solidify so it is easier to cut.

• After 30 mins in the fridge, roll the sausage shaped blondie in the triple chocolate cookie crumbs and cut into 1-inch pieces.

• Decorate your rolls with an extra little blob of biscuit spread and (optional) sprinkles.
