Caramelized nuts are one of the things I tend to step away from after making it. It is THAT dangerous from me, because once I try one – I won’t be able to stop eating.
These caramel chocolate barks are super addictive, and if you like peanuts, caramel and chocolate – be careful! It’s the kind of treat you should make to someone you love, have it nicely wrapped and sent away 😉
Nutty Caramel Chocolate Barks
For caramelized peanuts and cashews:
- 200 grams (1 cup) sugar
- 45 ml. (3 tbsp.) water
- 60 grams (3 tbsp.) honey
- 5 grams (1 tsp.) Atlantic sea salt, ground
- 2 grams (1/2 tsp.) baking powder
- 180 grams roasted peanuts
- 180 grams roasted cashews
- 25 grams soft butter
For chocolate coating:
- 300 grams dark chocolate
In a large skillet put sugar, water, honey and salt and cook until caramelized. If you have a sugar thermometer is should reach 180c degrees.
When the caramel is ready add in baking powder, peanuts and cashews and stir well until nuts are coated with caramel.
Remove from heat, add the butter and stir until melted.
Pour the mixture on parchment paper and place another parchment paper on top. Using a heavy rolling pin, roll out to about 1-2 cm thick layer.
Let cool at room temperature until completely set.
Use a long knife and cut into small pieces.
Coating: temper the chocolate.
Dip the pieces of caramelized nuts in chocolate and place on a tray lined with baking paper to solidify.
Store at room temperature in a sealed box (in summer it is better to keep in a zip lock bag in the freezer).
- You can use any type of nuts who like.
- Instead of dark chocolate you can use milk or white chocolate.
- Instead of honey you can use maple syrup.
