peanut slice

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.

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.
