Heavenly Melting Moments In The Airfryer

Heavenly Melting Moments In The Airfryer

Welcome to our heavenly melting moments in the airfryer.

If you haven’t tried melting moments before then you should because they are like heaven on a plate. Actually that is not strictly true as they are so delicious they never actually make it onto a plate in our house.

As soon as Dominic had finished making them and the airfryer had dinged we were all tucking into them in the kitchen and they were gone within seconds.

First of all, if you have not heard of melting moments they should otherwise be known as the British cookie of choice. Back in the 80’s I always remember my Grandma making these. She would put a lot more coconut in them so I used to get her to do less coconut just for me. She used to make so many that she would use her washing up bowl as her mixing bowl and we were soon drowning in cookies. So it was no surprise that a decade later she had diabetes!!!

Now it is the turn of Dominic to bring this classic to the modern airfryer and to see if they could taste just as good as the ones Grandma used to make. And oh yes they are just as nice.

What I love about melting moments is that you change them to suit your own needs. We hate cherries so never place one on top and instead include white chocolate within the mixture. Another option is to add raisins to your mixture.
