This is definitely not a healthy post, despite trying to loose weight. I am the kind of person that struggles to prioritise healthy eating over delicious food. On Friday is was midsummer in Sweden and Estonia. I wanted to celebrate the Swedish way with flowers, a may pole, new potatoes and hearing, but I had to settle for the Estonian celebration with a bonfire. (It was lovely not really settling at all).
We had some friends over, and lit a little fire in our newly bought fire pit. It looked amazing.
Obviously we had some marshmallows to roast on the fire. I had also made a batch of my peanut butter and chocolate bars, and my genius idea was to put a roasted, gooey marshmallow on top of my peanut butter and chocolate and then half a strawberry to finish it off. It was amazing.
To make the peanut butter bars (which are gorgeous on thier own and a staple treat in our house)
- 2 cups peanut butter I usually use smooth
- 1 cup butter (melted)
- 2 cups digistive biscuit crumbs
- 1 cup icing sugar
Smash the digistive biscuit intoe small crumbs mix in the melted butter, peanutbutter and icing sugar. Once its one smooth mixture take the pan you want to use. The size of the pan can varry but obviously the smalle the pan the thicker the peanut butter layer is. I usually use a pan that is 30 by 15 cm.
For the choclate top.
- 150 gram choclate of your choice
- a dash of milk
I usually break the choclate bar into pices in a bowl add a bit of milk, not to much, and microwave it till it melts. Taking it out occasionally to stir. I also like to add a bit of salt to the chocalte to contrast the sweetness of the dish. Once the chocalte is melted pour it over the peanut butter mixture and speard it evenly. It is usually a quite thin layer.
It is a loved treat, and in my opinon the marshmallow and strawberry made it an awesome dessert.
