Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Put water into a small saucepan. Sprinkle gelatin on top of water and let soften, about 5 minutes. Warm over a low heat, stirring constantly, just until gelatin melts, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together yogurt, honey and almond extract. Gradually whisk in gelatin, stirring constantly, until well combined.
Using an electric mixer, whip cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold into yogurt mixture until combined. Divide half of the mixture between 5 or 6 wine glasses. Sprinkle with half of the crushed candy bar. Top with remaining yogurt mixture and dust top with remaining crushed candy bar. Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
