Nutty biscuit bars for Pesach


1/2 cup (125 ml) water

1 cup (200g) castor sugar

1 tbsps rum (optional - I used triple sec as I did no have rum)

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 packet almonds (100g)

1 packet hazelnuts (100g)

1 packet red wine biscuits (Pesadich) (300g) - see pic below - or any other biscuit (when not Pesach)

300g dark chocolate - melted


Line a 22cm pan with parchment paper

Heat water and sugar and until sugar dissolves and then boil for 2 minutes

Add butter and melt

Stir in rum if using and vanilla essence

Grind nuts in a food processor

Add biscuits and blitz until fine (or curse in a bowl)

Combine biscuits and nuts with syrup

Separate mixture into two bowls

Add 3/4 pf chocolate to one bowl and mix until chocolate evenly spread

Press the chocolate mix into the bottom of the pan

Then press the nut mix on top of that

Pour the remaining chocolate over the biscuit mix and allow to set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Cut into squares with a hot knife and enjoy.
