    Hi All,

    Was hoping someone could tell me the exact amount of water (in mililitres) they use to make crisps from a soup sachet?

    I only ask cos I have just wasted 2 packs of Chocolate shakes by making the worst muffins in the world. all in the bin and have now decided to never attempt them again!

    I am a huge crisps fan and would love to make them (properly) :eek:

    If i keep messing up my CDC is gonna think Im having 6 sachets a day lol.

    hope anyone can help and if so, thanks in advance :)

    Sorry, couldn't tell you because I just keep adding a little water until it looks right. Just keep adding a little at a time and if it is too stiff, jst add a little more.
    Sorry I'm not much help.:eek:

    thanks fiojam.

    I am a bit thick it seems cos i havent a clue what looks "right" when it comes to the texture.

    honestly....you should have seen the state of the muffins....lol

    I would say a bit like tomato puree kind of thickness. Although I'm not sure if others would agree. Not so stiff that a spoon will stand up in it but thick enough to make peaks.

    I make mine a bit runnier so it doesn't make peaks. Think warm babyfood!!

    Never tried making a muffin but the crisps are really good if you can get them right. I make up half a packet of veg soup at a time. But you can make a whole packet and keep some in an airtight container. HTH

    I could never make them properly at all though I tried loads!!! Dont use grease proof paper either, it has to be baking parchment!
