We were off to our friends place this week and it was our turn for supper.
This recipe for Sweet and Salty Crunch Nut Bars in Nigella Kitchen has been on my mind since I first looked at the book. Just needed the right occasion!
The recipe consists of chocolate (dark and milk), butter, golden syrup, salted peanuts and Crunchie chocolate bars. You really should only have a small piece but I warn it is very hard to resist. Delicious.
This recipe for Pretzel Bites with Cheese I saw on Foodbuzz's Top 9 on Tuesday. I thought it looked wonderful and it was a really interesting recipe - you poach the little cheesy rolls in water with bicarb soda prior to baking. I am not sure why it has bicarb in the water - does it help them brown so beautifully?
They worked out perfectly, tasted exactly like pretzels with cheese. And although you have to be organised with your time they are really not hard. I did the kneading myself (not using a mixer as the recipe suggests) and I left it to rise for about 2.5 hours.
Next time I make these I am going to try with cinnamon sugar.
