Like a lot of people, I love food that combines sweet and salty flavours. Sweet and salty popcorn, salted caramel, anything of that nature. In my Salty Dog biscuits , for instance, the little sprinkling of salt on the top is a great foil to the citrus flavours of the biscuit.
For my latest bake or non-bake , I decided to combine some salty snacks with a classic marshmallow crispy rice treat. I was worried that the texture of the treat would become homogenously crispy but no- the puffed rice has a little chew to it, the pretzels are crisp and the peanuts are chunky. The saltiness is located within the pretzels and peanuts, so that you get bursts of saltiness instead of an overall salty flavour. I cut the treats into small chunks as I expected them to be sickly sweet, but they turned out milder than I expected.
If you like your treats sweeter then use sweetened puffed rice, or perhaps drizzle these with some melted chocolate.
Texturally, these treats are unique and moreish. As you can see, this recipe filled up two small pans; halve the recipe if needed.
I like to think of this bake as an exercise in simplicity. I saw a picture of a full-sized jam and coconut sponge on instagram recently and it took me back to my school days. Tender golden sponge, a thin layer of jam, and dessicated coconut on top. Rest assured, these recipes are pretty different. The papaya and coconut biscuits which I posted yesterday are firm and slightly crumbly, with tropical flavours.
These are closer to an American cookie, softer and cakier, with crunchy nuts and caramelised chocolate chunks. I actually used a bar which already had almonds and hazelnuts in it, which made the prep for these cookies very easy. I found this in my local supermarket, but you could always replace the chocolate and nuts with your own preferences. I tempered the sweetness of the chocolate and added a depth of flavour with a little coffee extract. This paired really well with the chocolate and the nuts.
You may be able to find this in the supermarket, online, or in baking shops. In this recipe I tried a few tricks from the blog Meaningful Eats. Online I saw countless stories from sufferers who were thoroughly miserable.
