My family loves the good old tea biscuit squares. It is a compulsory sweet item at functions and birthday parties.
The same family recipe using cocoa and condensed milk has been around for ages, passed down from generation to generation.
These squares have the same crunch as the original, but taste far better with the addition of melted dark chocolate and crunchy almonds….yum.
These crunch squares will be enjoyed by all and this recipe would become the new family favourite.
Nutty Crunch Squares
Yield : 24 squares
Preparation time : 20 minutes plus few hours setting time
- 125g soft butter
- 300g good quality 70% dark chocolate, broken into pieces
- 3 tablespoons golden syrup
- 200g tea biscuits, broken into little pieces
- 100g nibbed almonds
- Icing sugar to dust
Melt the butter and chocolate in a saucepan until melted through. Reserve ½ cup of the mixture for later.
Place biscuits in a plastic bag and seal, use a rolling pin to smash the biscuits into tiny pieces.
Fold the biscuits and nuts into the melted chocolate mixture in the saucepan.
Tip into a greased tray and flatten. Pour the reserved chocolate mixture on top and smooth out the top.
Refrigerate for a few hours until set. Cut into squares and dust with icing sugar.
