World’s Biggest Freddo
The Freddo is possibly the most iconic amphibian-themed chocolate bar you can buy, but it’s tiny. So in April 2021, live on Twitter, we tried to make the biggest one ever.
Essential item 1: a frog cake tin we found on eBay, it was a bit battered & grubby but we’ve given it a scrub
Essential item 2: pile of 100 Freddo bars. We probably should just roll around in them on a bed or throw them up in the air or something
Only a couple of weeks or so out of date, they’ll be fiiiiiine
Need to close off the sides to get a more Freddo-like shape
A bit of duct tape will fix anything, now to unwrap the chocs
We’re gonna need a bigger bowl
Apparently you’re supposed to put the bowl over some hot water? Worth a try
Not a lot happening. Only minimal meltage is occurring. Boring.
Getting there, needs more nuking
YES that can go in the tin
It looks a bit… bubbly. Maybe we’ve made a giant Aero?
Into the fridge for a while. Maybe an hour?
Gah still soft, back in again, we’ll put ice packs from the freezer under it to speed things along
It’s ready! Removing those side bits first…
Now for the moment of truth. Will it stick to the tin and break up, or plop out nicely in one piece?
