jungle bernie

once again, i thought he roamed off somewhere. but turned out he was busy eating through the unmowed area of grass in the backyard! and he's been hopping and munching his way through that he's created a sort of footpath! he's so cute T__T

look!! for people who can't travel all the way to orlando, maybe this will satisfy your harry potter cravings:

time to make: 1 hour
serves: 4
the recipe creator described the original taste as "a whipped shortbread cookie", and tried to recreate that.

- 1 cup light or dark brown sugar
- 2 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp butter (28.35g)
- 1/2 tsp cider vinegar
- 1 cup heavy cream (divided into 1/2 cups)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice (to taste)
- four 12-ounce bottles cream soda (12-ounce is about 350ml)


1. Combine brown sugar & water in a small saucepan. Over medium heat, bring to a gentle boil, stirring often, until mixture reads 240F (115C) on a candy thermometer.
2. Stir in butter, cider vinegar, and 1/2 cup of the heavy cream. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
3. Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the vanilla extract and pumpkin pie spice (to taste). Place in refrigerator until cool.
4. In a medium bowl, combine 2 tbsp of the brown sugar mixture and the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Beat with an electric mixer until thickened.

To serve: Divide the brown sugar mixture between 4 tall glasses (about 1/4 cup for each glass). Add 1/4 cup of cream soda to each glass, and stir to combine. Fill each glass nearly to the top with additional cream soda, then spoon the whipped topping over each.

if anyone makes this, please tell how it tastes XD!
