So here we are at Day 30 of NaBloPoMo and I'm happy that I've stuck through this, without too much reverting to memes or 30 second googles of colourful pictures. I will think of this month mostly as a month of extreme tiredness. Of laughter. Of discombobulation and restlessness. Of sadness. Of failing as a parent, but getting better as a wife. Of holding secrets that make my stomach churn with anxiety but also light up my veins.
Anyhow, I actually prepared something earlier for today, in readiness for tomorrow, the first day of December (or for me, the first day of Christmas).
1½ cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup (though I've used maple syrup and I think it tastes better)
395g can condensed milk
180g white cooking chocolate
Line a square cake/brownie tin with baking paper
Melt butter in a large saucepan
Add brown sugar, golden syrup and condensed milk; stir over a medium heat until boiling
Lower heat and cook, stirring for 10 minutes
Allow to cool on bench top and slice when completely cool.
- Refrigerate (assuming there is any left that hasn't made its way into your mouth)
