It has been a while since my last post. Here is a little update for you. I have been working hard on my career and trying to grow a business. As many of you will know, this takes a lot of time and patience. I have been spending my days out marketing instead of tucked away in my kitchen making delicious treats to share with you. However, I managed to secure some time today and here we have a new treat.
This recipe was from:
As you can see, I changed the chocolate. Otherwise it is the same! I’m hoping now that I have managed this recipe for the first time, I will be able to create some interesting new ones.
150g Granita biscuits
75g butter, melted
100g macadamia nuts
375g can sweetened condensed milk
2 Tb golden syrup
50g white chocolate melts
50g milk chocolate melts
First you will need to get the base ready. Crumb the biscuits. I used a food processor for this however you can also used a zip lock bag and a rolling pin if you have some anger issues that need sorting.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Combine the biscuit crumbs with the 75g butter and push flat in a tray. Put this in the fridge for an hour.
Next, roast the macadamia nuts in the oven for about 7-10 minutes (or longer if you prefer). Once roasted, chop the nuts into smaller pieces.
Combine the golden syrup, sweetened condensed milk and 30g butter in a saucepan on the stove. Continue stirring until the mixture turns a caramel colour. This will take about 10 minutes.
Pour the caramel mixture onto the base so it is spread evenly. Then scatter the nuts over the top. Place in the fridge to cool while you melt the chocolate.
As you can see I have used both white and milk chocolate (because it looks prettier and tastes better). Melt the chocolate either in the microwave on a low setting or in a bowl over a saucepan with water on the stove. I used a teaspoon to drizzle the chocolate over the slice.
Place back in the fridge to cool.
