Another successful traybake from my stash of retro recipe books, Salted Peanut Fudge Squares are a sugary, crunchy, salty treat.
The base is essentially shortbread with the addition of peanut butter. The top is a sugary, fudgey layer, filled with salted peanuts.
This is not a recipe for traditional fudge. There is no need for a thermometer or trying to reach the ‘soft ball’ stage with your sugar mix. These Fudge Squares are an easy, no-bake traybake where you mix a caramel syrup with crushed biscuits and top it all with chocolate. Yum!
Another non-traybake post this week. And it does require you to make pastry. (Or you could buy ready-made pastry, there’s no judgment here.)
These are called Marshmallow Fudge Tartlets, but it’s more of a ‘Marshmallow Jam Caramel Tartlet’. But the first option is shorter and snappier, so I’m sticking with that. The combination of crisp pastry, tart jam, sweet marshmallow and caramel is a winner.
