Baking Impulsively Means Eating Compulsively

Everyone, get ready to gasp – what in the world is a senior student who has her university life hanging by a thread according to her studies at high school in her senior years doing posting on the first day of a school week? Shock, horror, the world is coming to an end – why, she should be hitting those maths text book which weigh heavier than a computer and bustling around researching haemoglobin or something as such.

Oops, oh well, I think I will survive since I am that senior in question ;)

41You may remember that a couple of weeks back I had a Nutella Baking Week. Good times right? Well, I mentioned that I would be unavailable for World Nutella Day and it was true, I was supposed to be but sometimes things happen and you come home one day too early (she is taking holidays too? For shame! :P) – this was the case with me and finishing all my homework happened first (I am not a complete female version of that rebel without a cause you know) and then even after driving, having time to whip up a little Nutella snack. Well, a snack I didn’t follow the recipe at all too :) – Gotta love impulsive forgot-to-print-recipe cooking aye?

Anyway, I came up with something I haven’t actually seen before, and remember, this recipe was being made up as I went along.

22Refrigerator Candy Fudge Biscuits

What? What? What?

I like to think of it is as a fancy name for a really thick biscuit crust with slightly fudgy chewy qualities which is just made of delicious things. I simply think I could use it for the base of a cheesecake or something since it is so beautifully delicious. WHAT A HYBRID :D
Oh my gosh it is heavenly. Don’t ever knock it. Honestly.

What does it not contain: Sugar

What does it contain: Butter, Toblerone (I got the idea from here), desiccated coconut, Nutella (naturally)

How it should be eaten with: Slightly warmed with Rich coffee ice cream

Tell me it was the right thing to blog and ditch my English ;)

Without further ado then my hungry friends, here is the latest creation for World Nutella Day which has now had 1 week of entries + this post already dedicated to it :D

fref

Nutella-Toblerone Thick Fridge Biscuits
Idea created from: Gingerbread Bagels

Makes: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (226g) melted butter
  • 200g Toblerone, NOT melted
  • 1/2 cup Nutella (it is subtle taste when with Toblerone so add more if desired)
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 cups plain sweet biscuits
  • 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped roasted hazelnuts
  • Chocolate icing to drizzle (optional)

Method

  1. In a food processor, process biscuits and toblerone until finely chopped
  2. 7Pour mixture into a large bowl. Add in coconut, Nutella and melted butter – Stir till thoroughly combined
  3. Press into a lined tin or muffin liners
  4. 32Sprinkle with nuts and garnish with icing
  5. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or until set – enjoy!
  6. Store in fridge if very humid and let come to room temperature before serving

Notes

  • You can make a Nutella Peanut Butter version as well – just replace half the butter with peanut butter (do not have to melt) and mix roasted peanuts with the hazelnuts and use Reese’s peanut butter cups instead of or with Toblerone
  • There are infinite combinations of biscuits, add-ins and chocolate you can use so feel free to go a little crazy :D

13Enjoy and Ciao!

  3. Oh my! does this look gorgeous! I can already taste it!!
    No bake is very convenient and seems to be trending a lot these days. I know I won’t pass on a no-bake recipe :) Trying it and you’ve been buzzed…

    • Thanks so much :D
      And I definitely agree – why go through the heat if no bake gives just as good results?
      I hope you enjoy them as much as I did should you make them :)
      And thanks for buzzing!

      Cheers

    • You are very sweet my friend. I am not all that bright but because cooking is my passion, I am able to make it so :D
      Bless you as well and it was a pleasure to have you drop by :)

  5. As a former homeschooling parent, I am in awe of how much studying/learning you are doing through your food endeavors. Reading, writing and ‘arithmetic… it’s all there, along with science and research and who knows what else. Colleges/universities these days have so many applicants that they can’t accept them all and they look for that something special that tells them an applicant will commit and excel You, dear CCU, will have absolutely no problem getting into the school of your choice.

    This recipe is heavenly. Can’t wait to try the PB version.

    • You have honestly made my day my friend – I am honoured you would think such wonderful things for my future :)
      I am very excited now – almost giddy for university in 2 years time!
      I am also really glad you enjoyed this recipe – can’t wait for you to make it :D

      Cheers

    I swear, nutella is the solution to everything!!!!!! That looks so amazing! I also loved the way you styled it with nutella!! And yes, I agree with you that compulsive baking unfortunately leads to a lot of compulsive eating, followed by many yoga sessions for me. lol.

    hahah this post made me laugh! I can’t get enough of your Nutella recipes! I’m a little obsessed with the stuff… I keep just spooning it out of the jar, I’ve been meaning to hide it from myself :)

    • Good to know (because Nutella baking just keeps on happening ;))
      And as for hiding my Nutella jar I always manage to find it (I think it is the bloodhound nose in me :D)

      Cheers

  13. I will say yes to this no bake dessert as its looks really fantastic and easy to make.

    Btw, I break from the maths book is needed if you can balance studying and blogging together. I too take a comfort break from work and get into blogging to keep me going.

  14. This was DEFINITELY the right thing to do! OMG must make must make must make. It’s first thing Monday morning and I still want to eat like 10 of these right now! Thanks for the post. Totally going in my recipe book:)

    • Wow I am so happy that this is definitely a recipe for you :D
      Hope you enjoy them (and the fact that it is Monday makes it perfectly acceptable to want to eat 10 ;))

      Cheers

    You are too funny! I wish my senior would try his hand at baking…I’ll have to show him your blog! PS…these look amazing…and definitely worth the break from studying to share :)

    • Haha thank you :D
      I am sure your senior, if he is anything like me, will totally take baking as a chance to get out of studying – time to fit him into an aprong ;)
      Benefits both sides!

      Cheers

    • Awww thank you (but what if I make another recipe like this? Definitely another distraction coming up ;))
      I am sure you will love this recipe – wishing I could send some to you!

      Cheers

      Glad you enjoyed and it was awesome that your stopped by (oh and when you give them a try, send some over to me because they are long gone ;))

      Cheers

  16. Okay I really have to stop reading your blogs when I am hungry. This is some serious nutella. Good luck with your studies. I have found with wordpress I have all kinds of distractions to keep me away from studying…
