So, recently I had a cooking date with a friend where we each pick a handful of previously untried recipes and make them together. One of mine was a homemade Snickers spread. This is/was/will always be to die for!
Thus, I am adding the recipe here. Being Thermo-blessed I developed it for the Thermomix and haven’t as yet had time to convert it back. (sorry!) but with a mixer stick it shouldn’t be to hard.
And here it is:
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tbls cocoa or cacao powder
125 g dark chocolate (I recommend 70% gold – not cooking chocolate)
200g salted peanuts
2 tbls grape seed oil
You can either cheat and use a can of sweeten condensed milk or…
1000 g milk
130g white sugar
130g brown sugar
1/2 tsp bi carb
When we made the last batch we used Quirky Cookings coconut-based Dairy Free Dulce De Leche. It’s just what we had on hand with our experiments. If you are a big fan of Bounty Bars on toast skip the peanut butter add desiccated coconut and use this recipe. Just be prepared for some time dedication.
Place sugar in TM bowl. Pulvarise the sugar for 10 sec speed 8.
Add chocolate and blitz 10 sec on speed 8.
Add cocoa/cacao, butter, water and vanilla cook 6 minutes 50’c on speed 3 or until smooth. Place in a bowl to cool and rinse the TM bowl.
Place nuts into TM bowl and blend for 20 sec on speed 7 until smooth.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
Add oil and mix for 10 sec on speed 6.
Scrape down the sides and continue to mix for another 10 sec on speed 6.
Place all ingredients in the TM bowl and cook for 50 min, on varoma speed 5. Place basket on lid to prevent spitting.
Carefully layer each ingredient into a jar and place in fridge to cool and set.
It should last up to a month in the fridge.
Its a pretty versatile recipe so you can swap out nuts, add crushed nuts, try white chocolate, or eat separately.
My jar has a label on the top that says “poison”. Anything to deter me from eating it with a spoon!
