I must hand it to Cadbury’s marketing team. It has been years since we have had a family gathering where someone brought something other than a box of Cadbury favourites. For some reason, the last chocolates eaten are the Cherry Ripe. As I sat there looking at the small foil packet, I found myself wondering, “will it toast?”
Out came the toasted sandwich maker, loaf of white bread, butter and tub of ricotta cheese. I was still on a high from making White Chocolate, Raspberry & Ricotta toasties the week before. Whilst this does toast, its nowhere near as good as last week’s toastie *drools.*
Perhaps it is just a case of me not being a great fan of Cherry Ripe. I will leave it for you to decide.

Oh my nom, this is awesome. I did not expect this one to turn out so well. This is the best desert style toastie ever! The crispness of the bread really compliments the softness of the filling. I was tempted to use puff pastry instead of bread. I am glad that I did not because the pastry would have taken something away from the simplicity of this toastie.
The ratios between the raspberries, white chocolate, and ricotta are perfect. Whilst it is a desert toastie, it is not as sweet as you would expect. A slight dusting of icing sugar would make this dish look stunning, but to be honest, I do not think it needs the extra sugar.

Once upon a time, the toastie monster was known as the Caramello King. He earned this name by demolishing an entire fundraising box of Giant Caramello Koalas within one month.
Every now and then, Caramello Koalas dare to enter our household. Today, I managed to kidnap one.
Surprisingly, we also had a banana in the house. Caramello Koala and banana toasties had to be done. It was good, very good. I have seen people raving over banana and Nutella toasted sandwiches before, but I think the caramel makes it. Om nom nom.
