As soon as baked, it holds collectively and turns into gloriously chewy, caramely bar!
Place butter straight right into a lined pan and soften it within the oven whereas it’s pre-heating.
Swirl to unfold the melted butter throughout the bottom.
Sprinkle crushed biscuits throughout the bottom, then unfold utilizing a spoon/spatula/palms and evenly press down. I’m not meticulous right here about even spreading, that is, in any case, an emergency recipe!!
Sprinkle coconut throughout the bottom.
Prime with about 2/3 of the nuts and choc chips
Pour over condensed milk.
Prime with remaining nuts and choc chips.
Bake half-hour till mild golden on the perimeters, then cool earlier than slicing!
Substances in No-bowl chocolate nut bars
Ordinarily I put the elements earlier than the recipe steps, however I really feel like for this recipe it ought to be different manner spherical! So, right here’s what you want. It’s fabulously versatile – any plain biscuits, swap the peanuts and chocolate chips with different issues like dried fruit and different nuts.
Condensed milk – This sweetened milk is sort of a thick syrup and that is the important thing ingredient that holds the bar collectively. Commonplace cans right here in Australia re 395g (14oz) and are offered within the long-life dairy part in grocery retailer aisles.
Peanuts & chocolate chips – Be at liberty to substitute these with different add-ins of selection. Particularly hand if in case you have a peanut or nut allergy within the household. Attempt pepitas and dried fruit!
Coconut – Desiccated coconut blends into the crushed biscuits to create the bottom. When you don’t like or don’t have coconut, be at liberty so as to add further biscuits as an alternative, or leftover wheat germ / wheat bran (in the event you made final weeks’ Breakfast Muffins!).
Butter – For buttery goodness and in addition to carry the bottom collectively.
Plain biscuits/cookies – Something that may be crushed will work advantageous right here. I’ve used all kinds through the years – Marie, Arrowroot (featured in at present’s recipe), Graham crackers, scotch fingers. I as soon as even made this with chocolate Oreo cookies by scraping the filling off!! (It was an emergency and it was darn scrumptious!)
It’s not a hack
That is a kind of recipes that’s not a “hack”, however moderately an incidental aspect profit is that it may be made with out dirtying a single bowl. I might make these even when I had to make use of a bowl to make them!
So hold this one tucked away for a kind of days while you’re in a rush and also you’ve promised to make a candy deal with for your loved ones or mates!! – Nagi x
