The fact that it’s already October is kind of bittersweet for me; bitter relative to the fact that September was just one huge gush of stress that’s still lingering in the air, and sweet because it’s not September lol. Amongst other things, of course.
I’ve been racking my brain all day trying to figure out what to write about for today’s post and although I had a few ideas, I wanted to save them for when I felt motivated and inspired enough to take pictures that’ll at least look like I made an effort to supplement them. So for today, I’ll just write about a mostly useless life hack that just might be useful for people whose levels of lazy and bored while craving something sweet lie on the same spectrum as mine.
Sometimes when I’m desperately in the mood for something sweet with a cake like texture but I don’t feel like going out of my way to buy or bake anything and it gets to the point where even a mug cake seems like a hassle (I’ve never even made a mug cake and I get the feeling I’m missing out), I make this alternative that has an almost cake-like texture and barely takes five minutes to make. It’s not the most amazing or even useful life hack or anything but it’s a tip that helps me a lot so I figured I’d share anyway.
All you need are:
- Chocolates (I usually use dairy milk, and you can use as much as you like),
- Digestive biscuits (I’m yet to try it with other types of biscuits but if or when I do, I’ll mention how it goes),
Today I tried adding almonds as well but they tasted too chewy.
Basically, all I do is microwave the chocolates in a bowl till they melt enough to stir a bit, then add a spoon or two of milk and microwave them again. After that, I add two or three partially crushed digestive biscuits (some as crumbs and some as small pieces) and then I pour a little more milk, enough to soak most of the biscuits. Then microwave again till the biscuits become soft (with my microwave that usually happens in 30 seconds). Then you just mix everything till it looks like one big unappetizing blob of softness.
Even in the picture I’ll attach below it doesn’t look very appealing and it doesn’t always taste like a cake would, but the texture’s usually close to it and the taste is pretty decent, too. I personally think it’s a great last minute substitute for cravings that won’t go away and it’s worked so far for me, which is saying a lot because my cravings are usually very difficult to fulfill so easily (I’m very picky if that wasn’t already obvious. But oh well).
I apologize for such a dull post but it’s been a dull week, mostly because I still haven’t finished watching the k-drama I started last week that seemed promising but is way too dragged on for what it’s worth. I’ll probably post about it sometime soon as well but it’ll be more like a rant than a review lol.
So yeah, that’s it I guess. Hope you all had a good Sunday (I say to the void).
