Pile em on high. 8 crumpets high.


On new years morning I was strangely not in the mood for a greasy eggs and bacon breakfast, partially because I did not have these luxuries available at hand. I did however have a crumpet mix and a slab of chocolate, some might beg to differ that these are in actual fact luxuries whilst the eggs are a necessity. I tend to do things a little bit differently around here.
The result of these simple ingredients was what one might call a decadent breakfast of stacked crumpets (8 each to be exact) dripping in a chocolate and peanut butter sauce. The pre-mix bag makes roughly 18 crumpets and has simple directions indicated on the bag whilst the sauce is made purely from imagination. Simply pour boiling water into a saucepan and place a heat resistant glass bowl into the pot,allowing the base to just touch the water. Break the chocolate into the bowl allowing it to slowly melt. Add a smidgen of butter, peanut butter and a dash or two of milk, stirring continuously. I have quite the sweet tooth and added an optional tablespoon of castor sugar for the kick. Stack and serve, garnishing with whatever your heart desires... 
Now that’s a way to start 2012.Not with a fizzle but with a BANG!
