How to Clean Out Your Candle Jar... 

First, we've got to prep! Make sure it's nice and clean (especially if food or drink are going in there). See our blog for a simple guide on how to do this by clicking here.

Now your candle jar is all nice and clean it's time to get creative.

We started by thinking of loads of different ways in which your candle jar could be used around the house. You've now got a perfectly, clean spare glass jar going! You can't possibly throw this away. There are so so so SO many ways in which you can re-purpose this glass jar, not only are you gaining something out of it but you are helping the environment massively. Here at Fosse we want to make your life easier but also help out the planet anyway we can. It's a win-win situation right?

Puddings...

We all love a dessert right? Well, lucky for me and Amy we got to spend our an afternoon making some delicious treats to inspire you. Our glass jars are the perfect size! Maybe you're hosting a dinner party? Or maybe you just fancy making some puddings on a Thursday evening. It really doesn't matter what the occasion is because there's always time for dessert... 

Whether it's Oreo cheesecake, Chocolate Brownie Eton Mess, Jam Roly-Poly or Reese's Pieces Cheesecake, you can choose from loads of recipes online that will fit wonderfully in your up-cycled candle jar...

 For the cheesecakes we started by crumbling up digestive biscuits (you can really use any biscuit that is to your taste). Then, we whipped cream cheese, double cream, icing sugar and crushed Oreo (or Reese's Pieces depending on which treat you're using) all together to create a delicious creamy filling. We layered this onto of the biscuit and added decorative Oreo's/Reese's Pieces on top. Once your happy with the final result, pop in the fridge to set for at least 4 hours. Perfect for a dinner party dessert!

 For our Eton Mess creation, we added a little chocolaty treat. We whipped double cream until it was a thick consistency, added meringue and crumbled up some chocolate brownie and mixed it all together, a classic with a twist! Of course, you can add strawberries instead if you prefer. This is great for those summer BBQ's!

 For our Jam Roly-Poly. We started with a layer of jam, then added some fairy cakes and kept layering until the deliciousness was created. We then added a some cream on the top and some fresh strawberries for decor. A golden oldie! Great to go with afternoon tea.

 These are, of course only recommendations and a brief description of what we used for your inspiration
