My obsession with Tunnock’s Caramel Wafers started years ago when I first went to the University of St Andrews. I spent the best 5 years of my life there, especially when I discovered there was a student society dedicated to Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer. I quickly discovered the joy of Tunnock’s Tea Cakes and the other delicious products made at the Tunnock’s factory. Over the years I have been inspired by Tunnock’s and thought it was time I made some Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer pained rocks the easy way.

First we ate the Tunnock’s Tea Cakes, carefully removing each foil wrapper and smoothing out the wrinkles with our fingers.

Then we sorted through our rocks to find the roundest ones which looked like tea cakes. Then we carefully wrapped each rock in the foil Tunnock’s wrapper. I hope you didn’t think I was going to paint that pattern on each rock! The rocks were the perfect size to be covered completely by the foil wrapper and I folded any loose pieces of foil underneath, smoothing them down with my fingers.

I finished off each covered rock in a layer of Wilko Gloss Yacht Varnish. This made them super shiny and made sure that any overlapping pieces of foil were covered and sealed.
