    oh and the choc is as thick as a caramac bar and the inside is just heaven. Not that I eat them often. I am an ice-cream freak - far prefer it to choc bars, sweets, biscuits etc. I truly love ice-cream as much as my darling h2b. In fact, given the choice, i'm really not sure what i'd do! ;)

    Oooh share please Becky. We are swapping husbands for what they are good at. Popples does the ice cream, Julias does the ironing & mine does the garden so can we add Ian to the list? ;) xxx

    This thread is making me drool - not good when we have no biscuits, chocolate, sweets or ice-cream in the house!! ARGH!! I love caramacs but haven't tried one in ages but the caramac ice creams sound to die for!! Also remember highland toffees and wham bars. Used to love Irn-bru bars too. Can't stand party rings but love Garibaldi biscuits, choc digestives, and Fox's crunch creams. Creme eggs are alsos yukky! My kids favourite are Malted Milks or Moo Moo biscuits as the packt says - I'm quite partial myself!! Try not to eat sweet things tho! Those choc orange cookies sound heave- please send some my way!! I make a mean triple choc cookie which have about a billion calories in so don't make them very often!

    I am the same with baking although struggle in our kitchen these days as its so small so can't really move with a chair in there - helps the diet though.

    And who ever talked about using kit kats as straws - its amazing with a cup of tea. Also love hob nobs and jaffa cakes and kitkats but not the chunky ones and has to be 4 fingers as 2 isn't enough!

    god, i really should come on this forum in the evenings!
    I miss out on everything! :)

    yes, I remember all the old stuff too - we used to have Caramacs after swimming, so they taste like that to me!

    popple- you must buy Roskilly's Icecream - they're based in cornwall and have a website, here
    it's like heaven all frozen :p

    my favourite biscuits are now mcvities chocolate caramel digestives.

    but i love fig rolls (remember the fig shortage a couple of years ago? it was frightening); chocolate hobnobs and maryland cookies.

    They are A-MAY-ZER-ING!!! :lol:

    We made a batch at the weekend, and the cookie dough was about the size of a football. We had to cook them in batches because we didn't have room in our oven! Luckily they freeze really well :)

    Recipe for anyone who wants it:

    250g melted butter (not too hot or it will cook the egg)
    200g light brown sugar
    250g caster sugar
    2 eggs
    400g self-raising flour
    50g cocoa
    As many choc chips as you want
    Orange essence

    Sieve the self-raising flour and cocoa into a bowl and mix together with the other dry ingredients (including the choc chips). Add the melted butter, eggs and orange essence, and mix into a dough (using your hands is the best way - and the funnest). Break off small chunks and roll into balls (about the size of a walnut). Place on a baking tray, making sure you leave plenty of room for them to spread out.

    Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180 degC (fan assisted) for 7-10 mins - until they have just about cooked but are still soft.

    Leave to cool before eating - this will test your will power!:lol:

    I don't know the calorie content, but based on the ingredients I'm sure they are only about 5 - 10 calories each :p I WISH!!

    favourite biscuits... hmm Cadburys digestives... or choclate hob hobs.. or custard creams.. or golden crunch creams... in fact I'm yet to meet a biscuit I don't like and will even eat 'fly biscuits' [​IMG]

    Love party rings... what about pink wafers?

    Dunking is a must.. and a particularly hazardous yet fun past time with your 'soft biscuits' like rich tea [​IMG]

    I hated pink wafers, don't know why, not a wafer type I don't think, though I don't mind KitKats, perhaps chocolate makes everything better!
    Just did a quick fire quiz with Spence, his favourite is Rich tea, he does dunk, but not in squash!
    Becky am gonna make that recipe when i'm up to moving more than 2cm's, my ass is growing by the day!

    Oh yes, pink wafers are brilliant - and bourbons, I just can't get enough of them!

    I've seen Tunnock's teacakes about a lot recently, they are just the best things ever (and they sort of count as biscuits, right?)
