“And get another box of Jelly Slugs, dear, they’ve nearly cleaned us out–” said a woman’s voice.
-Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, J.K. Rowling
There’s little known about Jelly Slugs, other than that they’re sold at Honeydukes and seem to be quite popular. So I let imagination take over with this one. I knew I didn’t want a regular jello flavour of lemon or mango or lime. As I was researching slugs, I found out that there are banana slugs found in North America. From there I thought of banoffee pie, made of bananas, cream and toffee, an English dessert, created in 1971 in East Sussex.
Fortunately, in the supermarket, they sell a jar of banoffee dessert sauce, so I decided to give it a go.
- 1 box of 'make your own/flavourless' jello
- 7-8 tbsp powdered gelatine
- ¼ cup water
- 300g jar of banoffee dessert sauce
- In a saucepan, over low-medium heat, stir together the jello, powdered gelatine and water.
- Stir until all is dissolved and the mixture has lost it's grittiness.
- Add in the banoffee sauce.
- Stirring, let it heat up, but don't let it boil or bubble, just until the sauce is smooth and flows off the spoon when lifted.
- Using a smaller spoon, scoop into the slug mold.
- Place the old into the freezer for 5-10 minutes, depending on how warm the mixture is, until it is firm and pops out of the mold easily.
- Repeat. If the mixture starts to firm up in the pot, just reheat slightly until it's smooth again.
