OPR: Other. People’s. Recipes.
In the past week I have followed to the letter two sugar free sweets recipes from sites and authors who have made a LOT of money by charging for their recipes and programs. Both recipes failed. I mean, they were edible, but only if desperate. They certainly weren’t things I’d consider treats. One was quite tricky, although it was suggested as easy. And I cook!
A little search on the interwebs after these failures found that a number of other people had posed questions about the tricky one in particular. The ingredients list didn’t match the method, the volumes in the ingredients list didn’t match the method. I have never claimed that my recipes were perfect, but if I was to start charging money for them, I can assure you I’d have them proof read and proof cooked by a few different parties before putting them out into the world. Okay, rant over.
Which leaves us here: despite thinking I’d have not one but two things to share with you this week, I will spare you the disappointment, and instead point you back to these little beauties.
This recipe is in fact an OPR, but it’s my friend Emma’s recipe. Tried and tested. I’m going to make a batch tonight. Then I’ll have something other than mildly-flavoured cardboard to snack on!
