Hello again party people! I promised a new bar recipe for today and I am happy to deliver. I must admit that I have criminally neglected peanut butter over the last months. With all those alternatives it’s hard to treat them all equally. BUT luckily my gateway drug has made a reappearance and definitely won’t disappear again anytime soon.
I have mentioned some of those matches made in heaven on Monday and one I definitely forgot was Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Throw in some crunch and I am all yours.
- 150 g peanut butter
- a pinch of salt
- 200 g unsweetened cornflakes
- 120 g honey
- 2 tbsp PB2
- 60 g cocoa powder
- 250 g cocoa butter
- Melt the cocoa butter in a water bath
- Give the honey, peanut butter in a large bowl and stir with a fork until combined
- Now add the salt, PB2 and cocoa powder and stir again
- When the cocoa butter is fully melted add to the bowl and stir until everything is well combined
- Now add the cornflakes and knead carefully with your hands until the chocolate mass has covered all the cornflakes. That's essential in order to prevent the bars from crumbling apart
- Line a big baking tray with some baking parchment and give the mass into the form
- With your hands spread the dough and press slightly to the ground
- Chill for 30 min in the freezer or at least 60 min in the fridge
- Remove it from the baking tray and cut into the desired size. I get about 16 squares out of this recipe
- The chocolate mass is pretty runny and will set on the bottom of the tin. I personally like to rather chocolaty base and the less chocolaty top layer of cornflakes. If you like your bars more balanced allow the mass to cool a little before you add the cornflakes.
- When you cut the squares, give the whole block on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife and cut the pieces with a single fast movement.
- Store in the fridge and use up within one week
- If you have some crumbles left you can use them to top your yoghurt bowls or smoothies. Delicious!
- A nice little crunchy treat combining some lovely components. And as it's conflakes I have no worried to dig in as a breakfast as well. Not too strange today but definitely good!
