FIKA FRIDAY Baking Time

Right!! I have not worked out how to do the IGTV on Instagram (or perhaps I have not even looked at how). But here is a recipe from today’s bake. I have an old beaten up cookbook I brought with me from Sweden, it is falling apart but I did treat myself a few years ago when we sold Arne Jacobsen Design Letters designs. It is still in its plastic so maybe now is the time to try ALL the recipes and keep the best and add some new favourites.

What we made today, well I would not say they are Swedish at all, but the girls picked them and they are well tasty so here we go!

Homemade Snickers
Homemade snickers

Today’s bake was Homemade Snickers!

Always choose good quality ingredients.

Here we used good palm free crunchy peanut butter.

Chocolate, well we are a mixed family, 2 like dark and one like white and one does not care.

When I bake I still use dl and l. But a simple guide is to think 1 dl is 100 ml.

Ingredients

  • 7-8 dl cereal, you can use rice crisp or cornflakes or whatever you have at home
  • 1 dl caster sugar
  • 2 dl golden syrup
  • 1 jar peanut butter (225g)
  • 1 tsk vanilla sugar or alternatively 1 tsk vanilla extract
  • 1 dl coconut
  • 250 g chocolate of your choice

Mix sugar, peanut butter and golden syrup in a pan, heat up but avoid bringing to boil

Mix cereal, coconut and vanilla sugar in another bowl, if you like, smash the cereal so it does not have too big pieces but not too small either. Lagom is a good Swedish word to use here.

Add the warm mix with the cold and mix together. Use a tray, approx 20×30 cm size but if you like thicker bites then get a smaller tray. Flatten the mix in the tray.

Melt the chocolate using the the water bath method and spread on the top.

Let it cool down in the fridge before cutting in to squares (or whatever shape you like) and then ENJOY!!!

Keep in a sealed container in the fridge if any left!

Right not a Swedish recipe but a very very tasty one! I definitely do not need any dinner tonight!
