The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.
Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty’s Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.
Read the first three chapters for free on most devices.
Coat a large shallow tray or platter with butter or cooking spray. Using a large saucepan bring the condensed milk, cocoa powder and butter to a boil making sure you stir constantly using a rubber spatula.
Reduce the heat to a medium low setting and cook for a further 15 to 20 minutes, stirring all the time until the mixture thickens and forms the consistency of thick icing.
Pour the mixture into the prepared tray and let it cool completely and becomes firm. If you need this is occur quicker then pop it in the fridge.
Grease your hands with the extra butter and shape the pieces into balls of about one inch diameter.
Then roll each into the 100 and 1000s and place them onto a tray with waxed paper and refrigerate for at least one hour prior to serving.
