This week’s #SundaySupper is all about crunchy goodness. When I first saw the title I had so many ideas! I could use a Crunchie bar and smush it into just about anything, but then I didn’t know if people would know what a Crunchie was. For those that don’t, it’s a bar of crunchy honeycomb coated in Cadbury’s chocolate and it’s teeth pulling out amazing.
Then I thought I could use Crunchy Nut Conrflakes, a cereal by Kelloggs that I adore! I’ve been wanting to use it in a recipe for ages, but again I wasn’t sure if this was a cereal just limited to the UK. If it is, you guys are definitely missing out!
In the end I decided on crunchy, gooey cookies, because who doesn’t like a cookie? If you don’t like cookies, we probably can’t be friends. Or maybe we could be, and I could force feed you cookies until you were normal again.
I love the idea of salty and sweet together, I always have done. I liked it before it was cool. I’m just that hipsters guys. Or not. When I was in Italy, they sold Milka chocolate with Ritz crackers in, something which I am dying to try out myself!
These cookies were the perfect combination for me, I used salted and roasted cashews for an extra flavour boost, but you could use plain if you don’t like them too salted.
I was quite proud of myself this week, as I said in my last post, I recently moved house. The oven is different (like nuclear powered!), the kitchen is tiny and I couldn’t figure out where to photograph anything because I lost my trusty garden table. But I do have a conservatory, and a kitchen side, and I did my best photographing. I’m proud with the results, mainly because they took me next to no time, and didn’t require much editing.
- 125g butter, softened
- 100g light brown soft sugar
- 100g caster sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 225g plain flour
- 4-5 salted caramels cut into chunks (or salted caramel chunks if you can get them)
- 75g roasted and salted cashews, roughly broken
- Preheat the oven to 180°C
- Cream butter and sugars together.
- Mix in the egg and vanilla until combined
- Sift in the flour and mix well.
- Sprinkle in the caramels and cashews and roughly mix.
- Roll into small golf ball sized balls and place on a lined baking tray. Press down slightly on each one with the palm of your hand. Make so you give them plenty of space because they spread a lot!
- Bake for 7-9 minutes, depending on how gooey you want them.
