- When you get to the airport get your train tickets inside the station
- Getting to the station is the one I found tricky, just walk outside the station and go left then there's a really long path which usually will have people walking on it just go all the way don and there is signs posted, at the end you can either go down a flight of stairs to your left or cross the road - go down the steps.
- A all day pass from A to E (I think, all I remember is that it was from the letter the airport was in to the centre,) is €7.90
- Once you get your ticket you need to validate it by finding one of the red boxes like the one in the picture above and just plop it in then it stamps it for you - if you don't get this done you'll be travelling illegally!
- With the tickets you can get get the S-Bahn (train), U-Bahn (underground), Tram or Bus.
- Google maps is your friend! If I didn't use it when I was out there I wouldn't of found half of the places I was looking for.
- You can basically get a train everywhere and anywhere, plus each little town is pretty small and everything is close apart so you can walk around!
- Do take comfy shoes to walk around in, you'll be doing a lot of walking!
- The trains run frequently so you don't have to worry about missing one, but double check before hand to be safe!
- Everything is sign posted making it really easy.
- The ticket machine is on every platform so buy one before you get on! They also have settings for different languages so you don't have to worry if you know any Germany.
I feel like every recipe that I'm uploading at the moment is a no-bake recipe where I still can't help myself and end up calling it a bake, I just can't help myself it just sounds so much better than someone really complicated - which is the total opposite to this recipe!
If you've been reading my blog for a few weeks you would of seen that about four weeks ago I uploaded my Easy Malteser Bake recipe and well this recipe here today is basically just that with a few tweaks meaning instead of having maltesers it has Mint Aero Bubbles which I actually prefer to the Malteser one! I know people that don't like mint chocolate yet they actually enjoyed eating these, I mean I took them into work and they was just inhaled (yes, I did shove a few into my gob but that's not the point.)
- 2 tsps cocoa powder
- 200g white chocolate
- 250g of plain sweet biscuits, I used rich tea.
- 125g butter
- 1 tin of condensed milk
- 185g mint aero bubbles cut in half, I used 1 1/2 large bags! I also chucked a few in full for added texture!
- Green food colouring
- Line a rectangle baking tray with baking paper.
- Crush the biscuits in a food processor, blender or in a bag. I did the bag method so there was quite a few big chunks!
- Poor the crushed biscuits into a bowl and add 3/4 of the mint aero bubbles.
- Over medium heat mix the cocoa powder, milk and butter until combined. Make sure to keep stirring or the milk will burn!
- Pour over the dry mixture and mix until combined.
- Add to the baking tray and make sure it's flat and even.
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave and add to the baking tray.
- Add a few spoonfuls of melted chocolate into a separate bowl and add a few drops of food colouring until it makes a mint green colour.
- Add the green mixture onto of the tray back in batches and combine with a knife, fork or toothpick to create a zigzag/marble effect.
- Add remaining mint aero bubbles into the slice biscuit side down, it just makes them look pretty!
- Leave in the fridge until set.
- Cut and enjoy!
As some of you may know I recently-ish went on a little trip to Birmingham to see Melody and to also see 5 Seconds Of Summer on the UK leg of their Sounds Live Feels Live tour, it wasn't the first time that I saw them on their tour this year and it was sadly the last time I would be seeing them until next year so I decided to make this one a bit more memorable by staying in a hotel overnight - and because let's face it I wasn't going to go on a 3 hour train journey back home at 11pm at night.
Obviously we didn't want to pay a lot of money for one night so we was looking for somewhere relatively cheap so while decided that Premier Inn and Travelodge was out of the window I went onto booking.com where I usually find all my great hotel deals. I came across The Royal Angus Hotel which not only looked amazing it was also in the centre of town while still being pretty cheap, I mean why does everywhere automatically charge 3x the normal rate when you want a twin room? I like my own bed and space thanks.
I feel like because my birthday has just gone I'm still in full on princess mode where no matter what I'm doing or eating I want it to be princessy and amazing so I think that's why I decided to make this Unicorn Bark, oh and because I am a massive chocolate lover!
I have actually seen quite a few people obsessing over all things magical and I do 100% think this chocolate bark looks like Unicorn vomit but that isn't really a appealing name for something you're about to shove in your gob is it, because let's face it who wants to think of sick when they're eating? Nobody that's who. This is still in my whole 'no bake' recipes where all you need is a microwave and it's still super easy to do, I mean extremely easy and quick that I could just whip it up in a few minutes.
I didn't put any weights or amounts below because I can't remember what I used but you can do whatever you want with it whether it's changing the colours or the toppings, anything will work!
- Mini Marshmallows
- Edible Silver Balls
- White Chocolate
- pink and blue food colouring
- Microwave the chocolate in a bowl until melted, be careful not to burn the chocolate so do it in short 30 second intervals!
- Put some of the melted chocolate into two separate bowls then mix them with the food colourings.
- Pour the plain white chocolate onto some greaseproof paper on a baking tray.
- Add the coloured chocolate in drops them mix in a marble effect with a knife, fork or toothpick.
- Throw on all the toppings in any way, then pop into the fridge until set.
- When set break the chocolate bark with your hands and enjoy!
If you give this recipe a go make sure to let me know how it goes!
Are you a fan of Unicorns?
