2 CHOCOLATE TOPPED MUESLI BARS


What holds these two very delicious loosely bound muesli bars together is a nice layer of good quality melted chocolate. These bars are less of a sustenance and more of a treat. If the ever decreasing quality of commercial muesli bars is proof of anything, it is that nothing can substitute quality ingredients.


1. Chocolate Topped Nutella Muesli Bars

Bar:
2 cups good quality muesli
1/2 cup chopped almonds, toasted
1/8 cup butter
4 Tbsp Nutella
1/4 cup real maple syrup
sprinkle of salt

Topping:
1/2 cup pure, good quality dark chocolate, shaved
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup heavy cream

  • Line an 8×8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Place the muesli and the toasted almonds in a large bowl.
  • In a smaller bowl melt the butter in the microwave.
  • Add the Nutella, maple syrup and the salt and stir to combine.
  • Add the Nutella mixture to the big bowl and stir to combine.
  • Transfer to the prepared pan and press into an even, compact layer.
  • Melt the chocolate and the butter and add the heavy cream.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Spread the chocolate topping over the muesli bar and chill thoroughly before slicing.
  • Keep the bars between strips of parchment paper for 1 week in the fridge, or up to 2 months in the freezer.

It began with posting a few recipes on line for my family. "zsuzsa is in the kitchen" has more than 1000 Hungarian and International recipes. What started out as a private project turned into a well visited blog. The number of visitors long passed the two million mark. I organized my recipes into an on-line cookbook. On top of the page click on the cookbook to access the recipes. I am not profiting from my blog, so my visitors will not be harassed with advertising or flashy gadgets. Feel free to cut and paste my recipes for your own use. Publication is permitted as long as it is in your own words and with your own photographs. However, I would ask you for an acknowledgement and link-back to my blog. This is to my old on-line friends and visitors: policing the comment section for spam and answering questions has become a chore. Good wishes to you all, happy cooking and keep on feeding your people with good food.
