Macadamia Nut Slice - A Recipe

This is another recipe I made for my tea party and it went down pretty well too.  I loved it and would make it again.  It was really easy to do and looked great all chopped up served on a platter.  This recipe also came from my M&S Easy Baking book.

Ingredients:
(Makes 16)

280g plain flour
175g soft light brown sugar
115g butter, plus extra for greasing
115g macadamia nuts, roughly chopped (I bought ready halved ones as that's all I could find but it was much easier)

topping:
115g butter
100g soft light brown sugar
200g milk chocolate chips (I could only get 100g so used 100g of dark chocolate as well)

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180oC/Gas mark 4.  Grease a 30x20cm baking tin.

To make the base, sift the flour into a bowl and stir in the sugar.  Rub in the butter with your fingers until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Press the mixture in to the base of the prepared tin.  Sprinkle the Macadamia nuts evenly over the top.



To make the topping, put the butter and sugar into a saucepan and slowly bring the mixture to the boil, stirring constantly.  Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly, then carefully pour the mixture over the macadamia nuts.  Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until the caramel topping is bubbling.

Remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top.  Leave for 2-3 minutes until the chocolate chips start to melt, then, using the blade of a knife, swirl the chocolate over the top.




Leave to cool in the tin, then cut into squares.  Serve...
