As I currently have some time, I had been looking on the web the other day. Looking for new, interesting thoughts, inspirational dishes that I've never tasted before, to impress my loved ones with. Searching for a long time but couldn't find lots of interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I ran across this delightful and simple dessert simply by chance. It seemed so scrumptious on its snapshot, that called for quick actions.
It was easy to imagine the way it is made, how it tastes and just how much my hubby might want it. Mind you, it is extremely easy to delight the guy in terms of puddings. Anyhow, I got into the blog: Suncakemom and simply used the step-by-step instuctions that have been combined with wonderful pictures of the process. It really makes life quite easy. I can imagine that it is a slight effort to shoot photographs in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you normally have sticky hands so that i sincerely appreciate the effort and time she placed in for making this post .
That being said I am inspired presenting my own dishes in a similar way. Many thanks the idea.
I was tweaking the initial mixture to make it for the taste of my family. I must say it had been a great outcome. They enjoyed the flavour, the consistency and enjoyed having a sweet such as this in the midst of a busy week. They quite simply asked for even more, more and more. So the next occasion I'm not going to make the same miscalculation. I am gonna double the volume .

(If you're making the wiggly worms for kids party, it's time to put raisin eyes at the end of the cheese covered straws too.)

Take tray out when cheese melted and golden brown then leave to cool on the tray.
