I know. I’ve been overdoing the sweets recently. But you know something? There’s no such thing as too much dessert.
But why the sweet tooth? You know, I haven’t always been the raving sweet tooth – I am extremely partial to my cheese, bread and spices. Yet, somehow in experimenting and indulging in the kitchen, baking and sweet treats is my most favourite thing to do. And it’s best done when I’m in a good mood and surrounded by hungry mouths. Last Sunday we had a full house, packed with loud laughter, bickering and stories – it was one of those lovely leisure mornings that remain ingrained to the memory for long – lot’s of children, tons of food and activity… my family as a rule tend to be loud and boisterous, and honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way.
This recipe inspiration comes from my darling friend, whom I go to whenever I need suggestions, venting, and share my dreams with. Every now and then I’ll tell her, challenge me, give me something to make. She first gave me beignets, to which I laughed out loud to, naturally. And then she settled down to this.
(but the beignet challenge is still happening behind the scenes…)
So here is my version of snickers bar-caramel bars-and whatever else that comes to your mind.
First is a chocolate pie shortcrust, half-baked, then topped with caramel and salted roasted peanuts and baked for a little while longer and then set in the fridge.
Nothing too fancy or crazy, but definitely naughty, addictive and sinful.
On the health note… it has peanuts. You’re welcome.
