I spent an evening last week with the Cadbury’s Team at The Cookery, doing (as you may have guessed!) a cooking class to celebrate their current #CashInYourCravings campaign (more on that in a bit). I really didn’t expect to have as much fun as I did (but hey, there’d be lotsa chocolate right?) so when they asked if I’d like to offer the same experience to a reader, I didn’t even need to think it through before I replied “hell yes!”.
We were a smallish group (maybe 12 or 15) and I brought my bae QueenofJozi along as my +1 which I’m sure made it at least double the fun. We “drew” chocolates from a (fancy Le Creuset) pot to choose teams and I was on team Cadbury Lunch Bar – the coolest team, obviously 🙂 We were around 4 teams, each cooking three dishes that made up the menu for the night, under the supervision of the SecretJoziChef in a super cool space (sponsored in part by Kitchen Aid!)
My team made a roasted chicken & red pepper soup, pita bread with Tirokafteri (a feta & chilli dip) and Chocolate Box brownies (with chunks of Crunchie on top!). My contribution to the cooking was um, minimal (I was focused on IG stories – don’t judge!). One of the other teams made gnocchi which I always wanted to learn so I sat in on that (it’s actually not hard!).
My favourite, favourite dish of the day was the PS I love you ice-cream (OMG!) which was served with our Chocolate Box brownies – it tasted like ice-cream and mascarpone had a baby!:)
While I had kinda heard about the #CashInOnYourCravings competition here & there, I only got it that night & its simple:
- you buy a participating Cadbury chocolate bar (Cadbury Lunch Bar & Cadbury Lunch Bar Mini, Cadbury PS Milk Chocolate & Cadbury PS Caramilk, Cadbury Crunchie & Cadbury 5 Star)
- you dial *120*101112# & follow the prompts
- you’ll need to enter the code on the inside of your wrapper
There’s a R10k winner everyday and the competition ends 31st October – read: you have less than a week left to enter!!!
Funny story – I felt a little blonde for not “getting it” before so when I got home I dug all my old wrappers from the trash (luckily we recycle so that’s not too gross an exercise) and sat on garage floor there & then that night after the event and entered! I won airtime a couple of times but fingers crossed I win that R10k please! (#TheAndersonTwins ain’t cheap!).
