BPAYis having a competition and you could win $3000 😀 I sure could use $3000 so I’ll show you my entry in a little bit!

What is BPAY?

BPAY is a payment method that banks use to allow you to pay bills quickly and easily without having to deal with many separate companies. For example I can now pay my water, electricity, rent, phone etc bill from internet banking through BPAY in about 10 minutes rather than the long boring task this used to be 15 years ago when you actually had to go to each place to pay. Therefore I can now spend more time filming nail art tutorials, yay!

About the competition!

Everyone loves things short and sweet. They put smiles on faces and give us a warm glow inside. So we at BPAY figured if we could take a long arduous task like queuing at the post office to pay a bill and make it a short and sweet process online, the world would be a better place. And so we did.

To enter, you need to write either:

1. A recipe

2. Give a film synopsis

3. Pen a love poem

4. Write a short fiction

BUT the catch is you need to do that all in 120 characters or less.I decided that I would write one of my favorite quick, easy, lazy fudge recipes. It takes about 5 minutes to make and is pretty much impossible to screw up! This is what I came up with…

Put butter, 1pack marshmallows+block choc in container. Nuke 30sec, cool in fridge, cut, STUFF FACE WITH FUDGE!

111 characters, oh yeah 9 characters to spare=champion!

So want to see the long version of it?

Marshmallow Fudge Recipe

What you need:

  • 1 packet of marshmallows
  • 1 block of chocolate
  • Some butter, around a tablespoon
  • Microwave proof container

You can use margarine or real butter, I didn’t want to waste the expensive margarine so I used cheap block butter.

So cut off a slice of butter.

And stick it into the microwave safe container.

So this is what you should have…

Pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Mine is 1100w so if yours is different please adjust the time.

Use a spoon to mix it all up, the marshmallow should be liquid and sticky. Don’t worry if the rest of the ingredients are still solid because the marshmallow will melt them nice and slowly.

Mix until it looks like this:

If it gets hard before it’s combined just put back in the microwave for another 10 seconds and remix.

You want to end up with something like this…

Marshmallow Fudge Recipe

Cool the whole thing in the fridge until it’s hard again.
