WORKERS at a Preston chip shop have been getting creative in the kitchen.

This time staff at Mister Easters chip shop in Longridge Road, Ribbleton, Preston have made a giant deep fried Ferrero Rocher.

It isn’t the first time the popular chippy has made something wacky.

At Christmas they sell deep fried mince pies, earlier this year they started selling normal size deep fried Ferrero Rocher.

Now they have gone to another extreme by making a huge version of the chocolate treat, complete with batter.

Husband and wife time John and Corinne Clarkson like to experiment with food and sell a range of goodies.

Corinne said: “We sourced a secret Ferrero Rocher recipe from America to allow us to make a large quantity and then form it into a large ball.

“Making the ball was not hard but other steps along the way were more challenging. The fryers had to be filled to maximum capacity to keep the ball buoyant and we had to use oversized equipment at every stage. We have the giant on display and it is creating a lot of interest.”
