Sweet and Salty Nut Crunch - Homemade Christmas Gifts.

I recently  made some Sweet and Salty nut crunch which I adapted from a Nigella Lawson Recipe (here). This always goes down really well in my house with very little to spare. This is also great for slicing up and putting in a jar or treat bags and giving away as Christmas gifts which is what I plan to do nearer the time. This is also really easy to make, that's if you can manage to do it without eating it all!

Sweet and Salty Nut Crunch Recipe
300g Chocolate (I used milk chocolate)
125g Butter
3 tbsp Golden Syrup
250g Salted Peanuts
4 x Crunchie Bars
30g Digestive Biscuits


Heat together the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a pan until all ingredients have melted evenly. I actually did mine in the microwave and kept an eye on it ensuring I stirred every 20 seconds.

Meanwhile, mix your dry ingredients together (the peanuts, biscuits, and crunchies - broken up)

Place into a baking dish or similar. I used a silicone quiche pan!

Place in the fridge for a few hours until set, cut into pieces and serve however you wish. This will probably last about a week or so in the fridge - certainly not in my house though!

I love serving the crunch bars in jars. I bought mine from Wilkinsons which is where I bought the 'Made for you' gift tags which I think are the perfect touch. The ribbons came from Poundland.
