Welcome to How To Cook That I am Ann Reardon
Today we are making a giant twix bar and at the end we'll be giving it away to an amazing
young lady so make sure you hang around to meet her as well.
But firstly to make it we need two rectangle boxes out of some thick cardboard and then
we want to make a rounded base so we are going to insert an extra piece of cardboard into
each one. Then staple them into place and line it with
some non-stick baking paper. Now I have made a bit of a mistake here I've just lined it
to the length of it but I suggest you make it longer to cover the sides all in one piece
instead of in a seperate piece because my caramel leaked around the back of that curve
there. To make the biscuit you will need some flour
water, butter, egg yolks, sugar, skim milk powder and salt. All of the recipe quantities
are on the website howtocookthat.net Place your butter and sugar into the bowl
of an electric mixer and beat it on low speed until it is smooth.
Then add the salt and the egg yolks and continue to mix that on low until it is
well combined. Then add in your skim milk powder and the
water and mix it again.
Once it's all evenly incorporated swap over from your scraper mixer to your dough hook
and then add the flour. If you don't have a dough hook you can mix the flour in by hand
that's totally fine. Place the mixture between two sheets of baking
paper and spread out until it is big enough to make at least four biscuits. And to get
it thick enough we are going to need to use two biscuits a double layer. We can't just
bake it double the thickness because then it doesn't go crisp it just goes cakey. So
we are going to bake it thinner and put tow of them in. Bake it in the oven for around
20 minutes then take it out and immediately cut it into lengths that will fit into your
box. Spread them out and put them back in the oven
just turn the oven off and leave them in there to dry out.
To make the caramel place the sugar, milk, cream and the glucose syrup into a pan. Now
you can use light corn syrup here instead of the glucose syrup if you can't get glucose
syrup where you are. And then stir it over the heat for several
minutes until the sugar dissolves and the mixture starts to boil.
Add a candy thermometer to the side of the pan and let it bubble away until it reaches
240 degrees F or 115C. Now for those of you without a thermometer
who are trying to guess when it's ready at 224F if you take a spoonful out and put it
on a cold surface it looks like this it is a thick smooth liquid.
At 235 it's looking like this it's starting to get thicker and it will make strings if
you lift up the spoon. At 240 which is what we want it is thicker
again and it's starting to set on the counter top.
As soon as it reaches 240 take it off the heat and pour it into your mold. Now this
is where I was saying I lost some of my caramel going around the edges of the curve. So if
you've just got that one piece of baking paper that should solve that problem.
While the caramel is still hot add in one biscuit.
Then some extra caramel and a second biscuit on top of that.
Let that cool down completely and then pour either tempered chocolate or you could use
fake or compound chocolate over the top. If you have no idea what I am talking about with
types of chocolate there is a video explaining that on the channel. Just click on howtocookthat
under this to go to the channela nd look in the chocoalte playlist.
Tap the mold on the bench to let the chocoalte run down the gaps and the edges and then let
that set completely.
Rip open the your mold and take out the body of your twix.
Then balance it on two cups. Then take a ladle and smother it from one end to the other in
more tempered chocolate. Use a spoon to drizzle a pattern of extra
chocolate across the top just like the bars have.
Then repeat that for the second bar and then you need to allow them to set.
To wrap them place the twix upside down on your paper and then place a piece of card
that you've covered in baking paper on the top.
And then use glue to secure the paper into place and then flip it over.
At the ends push the sides in and then flatten the paper down. Open it up and add glue then
refold it along the lines you've already made.
Cut off the extra paper using zigzag shaped scissors.
And then use the back of a knife to push indents into the paper along the join and then print
out a logo and then stick that on.
Now who should we give this giant twix to? In Fiji there are a large number of children
who are born every year who are profoundly deaf. And without treatment the future for
those children is very bleak. I have here with me today an amazing young
woman who is profoundly deaf herself but with the aid of lots of therapy lots of hard work
and with a hearing aid now as well she can speak normally and she can hear fairly well
with the hearing aid as well. And she is helping those children.
So Virginia why are you so passionate about working with deaf kids?
Um its funny I wasn't, I actually wasn't when I was younger it wasn't something that I was
passionate about at all. Mum just started working in Fiji and I was at university at
the time and studying Forensic psychology and I thought I'd go for a holiday.
So I went over to Fiji and I met a man who was 30 and he had the same hearing loss as
I do. When you lay our audiograms over each other it was an identical loss. Umm And this
guy was actually not able to speak. Umm had never had hearing aids in his life was signing
to me and my signing wasn't great at the time so it was a very sort of jarred conversation.
And he was asking me these questions, so you're at university and your friends are they deaf?
Or are you half deaf, are you deaf are you half deaf? And was going no, no it's the same
its the same. And then um he's asking me do you go and shop for yourself and all these
things and it was a really embarrassing conversation for me to have. And I remember looking at
some of the little kids that were there and just thinking that's kind of the trajectory
of what happens without what I have access to here in Australia. And so I think at that
time I just couldn't shake it and I came back to Australia form Fiji and changed my degree
and enrolled in speech pathology and sort of from there I have been up to my eyeballs
in it.
So you enrolled in speech pathology how did that work, how did the university react to
that someone with profound hearing loss doing speech pathology?
Yeah look it was a challenge initially um I was approached and asked did I think I was
going ot be able to get through the degree. So much of what you do as a speech pathologist
involves the ability to listen and discriminate small sounds. Um and I understood the concern
and I thought come back to me in a year and if you don't like how I'm doing then I'll
leave and I ended up doing quite well and graduating with really good marks.
And what exactly do you and the Carabez Alliance do when you go to Fiji? OK so we go over with
a team of people that is always changing. We have surgeons we have audiologists, speech
pathologists, we recently started taking occupational therapists um teachers of the deaf auditory
verbal therapists. We all go over and we are working with local organizations to up-skill
those organizations, up-skill their local staff. And with them we are working in early
intervention settings and providing hearing aids. So the diagnosis of hearing loss, what
type of hearing loss how severe, all of those things. Umm we provide hearing aids free of
charge which phonak have very generously donated to the Carbez alliance. Um and they are amazing
hearing aids, state of the art hearing aids so yeah we provide those to the families for
free and then we do the rehabilitation process with them.
That's awesome. Yeah, it's fun, I enjoy it.
It's so good. Well to say thank you for everything you're doing we've got a little donation to
help you on your next trip to Fiji Oh thank you
And we also have a giant Twix [laughter] which is not going to help anyone hear.
That is amazing, it's so heavy, that is amazing. 2 kilos of Twix
Wow, yeah wow oh that's incredible. Look at that [laughter]
See if you can get a bite. mmmm [laughter]
that is awesome, that's amazing. Tastes like a twix, like it tastes like a twix with all
the good bits I really like the caramel. That's amazing wow thank you.
