In our house we like to enjoy an evening tea (or glass of milk for the little ones), a couple of hours after dinner, along with a small bite of something sweet like biscuits. These white chocolate macadamia slices were made exactly with our evening tea in mind.
The lovely biscuit base has a delightfully nutty texture, and topped with milky white chocolate these slices makes a rich buttery treat.
I like white chocolate and macadamia nuts as a pairing, but what's great about this recipe is that depending on your taste and occasion you could switch this to milk chocolate or dark chocolate, and whatever nuts you prefer. Really, you could make a whole variety of different pairings - dark chocolate and pistachio, milk chocolate and walnuts... the variations are numerous.
Add sugar sprinkles like I did and you end up with a pretty looking chocolate biscuit essentially!
Even better, they require no baking, and would make an easy party treat to serve.
White Chocolate Macadamia Slice
Makes 12 slices
125g plain biscuits
50g (half cup) butter
60ml (1/4 cup) sweetened condensed milk
50g (1/3 cup) macadamias, chopped
For the topping:
100g white chocolate, chopped coarsely
Sugar balls for decorating
Grease a small rectangular or square pan, or glass dish (about 9x9 in') and line with parchment paper. Process the biscuits until very fine, and then mix in the macadamias. In a small saucepan combine the butter and condensed milk, and stir over low heat until smooth. Take off the heat and add the biscuit mixture to the butter. Press firmly into pan or dish. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes until set. Meanwhile melt the white chocolate in the microwave, or in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Spread over the biscuit layer, and sprinkle sugar balls over. Refrigerate until firm before cutting into squares.
