Hello everybody! Let me clarify something, this cake is not healthy. Like at all. However, as someone who often misses the taste of snickers this cake is a #blessing. I made this for Jens’ birthday and both he, I, and his parents loved it. It is rather low effort to make, because it does not require baking, and the end result is amazing. I was lucky enough to find all organic ingredients and a lot of plastic-free stuff as well, so the cake ended up being a rather low waste, something that I often find difficult when baking.
- 100 grams of sugar
- 200 grams of dark syrup
- 200 grams of peanut butter
- 200 grams of crushed cornflakes or granola
- 50 grams of chopped peanuts
- 200 grams of dark chocolate
- A pinch of salt
Measure all the ingredients. Pour syrup, peanut butter, and sugar in a pot on low/medium heat and stir until well combined. Don’t let it reach boiling temperatures, just heat it enough to melt the sugar slightly.
Crush your preferred breakfast cereal with a rolling pin. I used organic cornflakes, but rice crispies or granola will work just as well. To avoid plastic bags place the cereal between two kitchen towels and smash it with the pin. When crushes, add it and the peanut butter/sugar mixture to a bowl and combine them. Add crushed peanuts as well.
When mixed together find a tray and line it with parchment, leave paper unused on either side so the cake can be completely covered when it goes in the fridge. Press the batter down with a spoon or your hands as much as you can. The cake should measure 2-3 centimeters in height. Put it in the freezer to cool for 10-15 minutes.
While the cake I cooling down, melt the chocolate in a double boiler, or in a microwave. If you use a double boiler take a pot of water and place it in on medium heat. Find a glass or metal bowl and place it on top so that it just touches the water. Place the chocolate in the bowl and let it melt. Add the pinch of salt.
When the chocolate has melted completely, take the cake out of the freezer and apply a thick spread of chocolate on the surface of the cake.
Let it cool in the fridge until almost solid. At this point take it out and cut it into squares. Put it back in the fridge and let it solidify completely. Serve cooled.
