Snickers & Salted Peanut slice
Looking for ideas for easy Christmas gifts or sweet treats for the party season? This couldn't really be called cooking, more like melting, stirring and combining. But the results are delicious and at only 175cals (733kj) why not have two pieces.
3 x 50g Snickers bars, chopped roughly
2 x 53g Mars bars, chopped roughly
50g butter, chopped
1 tablespoon golden syrup
3 cups (105g ) rice bubbles
1/2 cup (70g) salted roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
100g dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
100g white chocolate, coarsely chopped
Line a 19cm x 29cm slice pan with baking paper allowing the sides to overhang.
In a medium saucepan combine the Snickers and Mars bars, butter and golden syrup over medium to low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until the bars melt and the mixture is smooth.
Combine in a large bowl, rice bubbles and peanuts, pour over the melted Snickers mixture and stir until just combined.
Spoon mixture into lined slice pan and press down lightly to smooth the surface.
Set aside for 1 hour to set and cool.
Place dark chocolate and white chocolate in separate bowls over saucepan of simmering water. Stir for 3 minutes or until the chocolate melts.
Pour chocolate alternately over the slice and using a palette or butter knife gently spread to create a marble effect.
Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Cut into desired size.
No need to resist.
