I don't know where to start to describe how delicious these sweet and crunchy nut bars are.
It may seem odd to add salted peanuts to chocolate bars, but let me tell you the combination is YUM and these bars are addictive.
Feel free though to change the chocolate to your liking, if you want to use milk or dark chocolate only. I'm sure Nigella wouldn't mind. I personally like the mixture of both chocolates. And yes, there's chocolate, butter, golden syrup, and more chocolate; but hey, this is a treat. I would recommend not eating the whole tray for one. It's nice to share sometimes, but the decision is yours.
Sweet and salty crunchy nut bars
Recipe by Nigella Lawson
Serves... 16 generous slices or 32 medium one... whatever you fancy
200 gr dark chocolate
100 gr milk chocolate
125 gr butter
3 tablespoons golden syrup
250 gr salted peanuts
4 x 40 gr Crunchie bars
1 foil tray, approximately 30 x 20 x 5 cm
In a saucepan, break up the chocolates into pieces and add the butter and golden syrup. Melt gently under low heat.
Tip the peanuts into a bowl and crush the Crunchie bars, letting the rubble falls into the nuts.
Take the melted chocolate mixture off the heat and stir in the peanuts and crushed Crunchie bars, then tip straight to the foil tray. Smooth the top of the mixture and put it in the fridge for about four hours before cutting into slices as desired.
