Peanut Butter Slice

IMG_1773 IMG_1775Ah the ever lasting joys of no-bake baking! That combined with the excessively minimal ‘pantry staples’ ingredient list, makes for one deliciously easy treat that even a five year old could whip together. Well a five year old that had an adult near to help them with the microwave (in case you remembered the food processor, the biscuits would be crushed the way my mum used to get my brother and I to do it – with a rolling pin and a bag).

I actually had intended to post last week however the no-bake treat set to wow with it’s simplicity was promptly eaten before any photos could be taken. A bit of a bummer but it was pretty delicious and the next time I make it, it will be surrounded with barbed wire until pictures have been taken. Otherwise I see the past repeating itself. That would not be ideal.

Originally this recipe didn’t have golden syrup but I bought peanut butter that had no added sugar so after tasting a wee bit of it I felt it needed a boost. Perhaps I am developing a sweet tooth at last (for better or worse). I have also reduced the butter by nearly 100grams as when I dumped in my 225gram total butter, it definitely was too much. It didn’t resemble cookie dough at all and ended up being a very wet mixture and having a complete lack of extra biscuits meant it went in the fridge as it was with fingers AND toes crossed.

Despite my slight hiccup, this blog I have discovered as a direct result, is AMAZING. I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of High Tea With Dragons before especially since we live in the same country. All in all, definitely a blog to rummage through if you love scrumptious baking and reading well written, interesting posts.

Peanut Butter Slice
Adapted from High Tea With Dragons

For the base

  • 250g pack of superwine biscuits, ground to a fine crumb (Sub with rice biscuits for a gluten free version)
  • 150g butter, melted
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 large tablespoons golden syrup

For the topping

  • 150g dark chocolate (50%)

Place the superwine biscuits into a food processor and grind to a very fine, almost flour-like crumb.

In a large bowl, mix together the biscuit crumb, melted butter, peanut butter and golden syrup until well combined. The mixture should be cookie dough like in consistency, add more butter if needed.

Press crumb mixture into a greased or lined tray.

Place the chocolate in a bowl and microwave until melted, stirring every 20 – 30 seconds. Once melted, mix together until smooth before pouring over biscuit base.

Place in the fridge to set for at least one hour before cutting into squares and serving.
