These chocolate squares are delicious, and SO simple to make. Trust me – I don’t do complicated (at least not where the oven is concerned).
Photos in this post were taken with my iPhone, by the way, and the first one was taken in the evening, so they don’t actually have that yellowy tinge off them.
100g (3.5oz) caster sugar
200g (7oz) softened butter
300g (11ox) self-raising flour
1 tin dulce de lech/caramel or boiled condensed milk
Chopped, salted peanuts
200g (7oz) milk chocolate
1 Swiss roll tin lined with greaseproof paper
- Preheat the oven to 180º (350º F), Gas mark 4.
- Blend the sugar, butter and flour in a food mixer until it resembles breadcrumbs
- Put the ‘breadcrumb’ mixture into the tin and press down to level out. Bake for approx 20 mins or until golden in colour.
- Remove tin from oven and allow to cool.
- Spread with dulce de leche
- Press the peanuts into the dulce de leche
- Melt the chocolate and pour over the prepared base.
- Allow to cool then place in the fridge to set.
- Cut into small squares.
I used Cadbury’s dairy milk chocolate for the topping and wasn’t completely happy with the finished look, but they tasted lovely and that’s the main thing. If anyone has any recommendations for the chocolate bit let me know. Meanwhile I’ll keep testing and sampling. Nom!
