Peanut Crunch – salty|sweet|good

IMG_0736This is the base of a slice I make all the time.  On this blog in 2012. It is on a yellowing and crumpled piece of newspaper. It has always been kept on the recipe book holder on the bench because I need it a lot and I can always find it there when I need it. The original recipe has a caramelish topping but I was experimenting and needed something really fast to take to a friend’s place and this is what I came up with.

Double everything and it makes a bigger slice.  Hint: you want a bigger slice.

  • 150 grams butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 desertspoon golden syrup
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup rice bubbles

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup over low heat. Chop peanuts in 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.

Just in case you want to ice this with the most delicious icing in the world – again double it.

  • 100g butter
  • 150g icing sugar
  • 1tblsp golden syrup
  • 2tsp vanilla

Melt butter and golden syrup, stir in vanilla and icing sugar, pour icing over base while hot.
