Peanut Crunch

One of my all time favourites, this is just delicious.  The photo isn’t the best.  What this makes is a peanut full slice which just barely clings together with the mixture.  It will be slightly different each time you make it.  Not really sure why.  The icing is really a crowning glory.  It’s fudgey and caramelish and just goes so well with the base.  Everyone I make this for loves it, and seriously, it takes 10 minutes to throw together, if that.

 

150g butter, ½ cup sugar, 1 desertspoon golden syrup, 1 cup peanuts, 1 cup flour, ½ tsp baking powder, 1 cup rice bubbles

 

Preheat oven to 180 degreesC.  Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup over a low heat.  Chop peanuts in a food processor.  Mix flour, baking powder and rice bubbles together.  Mix everything together and place in slice tin which has been lined with baking paper.  Bake until golden, approximately 15 min.

 

Make the icing while it is cooking with  100g butter, 150g icing sugar, 1 tblsp golden syrup.  Melt butter and golden syrup, stir in vanilla and icing sugar and pour over the base while it is still hot.  Cut when cool into long thin pieces.
