First off I just want to thank everyone at Tuesdays with Dorie for their warm welcome last week. I had so much fun with last weeks entry.
This week’s recipe is Snickery Squares was chosen by
After my two mishaps this weekend I was ready to make these. I got started. I grated my butter and made the dough by hand as I did not want to pull out my food processor; it was quite simple just like making a pie dough. And then it happened, things stared to go wrong.. I had to redo two components of this recipe today
The coating for the nuts: I looked and the sugar was just starting to dissolve. I went to my pc to pull up my blog. Came back. BURNT. So I had to start over. When I made the 2nd batch I didn’t think that there was enough coating for the peanuts, so I made a little extra. Otherwise everything else went smooth.
The dulce de leche: I usually make my own by boiling a can of condensed milk. But this time I decided to buy some. When I got home I found that I had inadvertently picked up a can of? Condensed milk. Since I didn’t have time to boil it, I decided to try another method and cook it in a saucepan. I thought this would take a while, so I went back to my pc. Came back into the kitchen to check on it. Edges were BURNT. So off to the store again to buy some.
Today I learned/reinforced two simple rules. No surfing the net, while you things boiling on the stove!!!
These are really rich but sooooo good. So rich, I almost couldn’t finish my little 2×2 square.
The next time I make these I will probably tweak the following two things;
The Dulce De Leche – I think I will add some melted caramel into this mixture to give the gooeyness im used to.
The Chocolate – I might use a ½ semisweet ½ bittersweet chocolate combo, and make my chocolate layer a little thinner
Never the less they were enjoyed by all!
