Gaby's Bakery - Kit Kat Bars

Good artists copy, great artists steal. So said Picasso. But what did he mean by that? Picasso was highlighting that good artists and great artists work differently.

A good artist may see another artist’s style and try to emulate it closely. A great artist will take inspiring elements from various sources and weave it into their own unique mix of ideas to create something original. Today I’m borrowing some influence from Kit-Kats.


My Take on Kit-Kat Bars

100g raw almonds
75g desiccated coconut
65g peanut or almond butter
80g maple syrup
160g dark (vegan) chocolate
Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 170⁰C, line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Blitz the almonds and coconut in a food processor until you have a fine flour. Slowly melt the peanut/almond butter in a saucepan with the maple syrup, mixing together.

In a large bowl combine the flour and butter mixture, add the salt and mix until it comes together as a dough.

On the prepared baking tray roll out the dough until you have a thin oblong. Place this in the oven and bake for appx 8-10 mins, until it has gone golden and edges have browned slightly.

Take out of the oven, allow to cool for 10 mins and then cut the edges off and divide into 6 equal rectangles. Crumble the edges and leave to one side.

Melt 60g of the chocolate, add the crumbled biscuit (you may not need it all) and mix. Smooth a layer of this on top of one rectangle, place another on top, smooth another layer of chocolate, then place the third rectangle on top. Repeat with the other three rectangles and then place in the fridge to set.

Melt the remaining 100g of chocolate. Take the two layered rectangle biscuits out the fridge and cut into desired size bars. Dip each bar in the chocolate, place back on parchment paper and once all bars are covered place back in the fridge to set. Keep stored in the fridge, take out a few mins prior to eating.

A model’s life is tough on hair. Our industry issue being that some hairdressers only care about today – once you’re home it’s your problem. That’s bad enough in salons with stylists and colourists only concerned with impressing you now. A lack of forethought means...

It’s now a few weeks since schools returned. The chill of winter is breezing through intermittently. The holiday glow has faded and the hair may reveal the dry, faded consequences of zero sun-protection. Aggravated scalps may also be flakier.

This seasonal shift beckons us to assess, repair and renew, ready for the next chapter. Investing in

Farewell Mum ❤️ 1923 – 2022

September 10, 2022

I’ve spent 20 years worrying about Mum (mostly needlessly) and thinking of this day. But it still didn’t prepare me for the sudden loss of the enormous energy field she held and the waves of grief that follow. Grief… the price you pay for love, as Queen Elizabeth II said. RIP - mother figure of our nation. Another shock this week. We’re all carrying much sadness.
