Fudge-nut squares

Hi again everyone,

As it is Friday, I thought I could not possibly just make one thing…so here is my second bake, fudge-nut squares. These treats have a shortbread like bottom and are covered in a fudge and walnut topping. They are super easy to make and really delicious!

Makes approximately 20 bars

Ingredients:

Base

150g soft spread

250g plain flour

75g caster sugar

Topping

150g milk chocolate

40g soft spread

397g can of condensed milk

50g chopped walnuts or pecans

Method:

1.Preheat the oven to 160°C/Gas mark 3. Grease and line a 28 x 18cm shallow baking tin.

2.Put the soft spread and sieved flour into a bowl, using your fingers rub the soft spread into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and mix again.

3.Continue to work the mixture until it forms a smooth mixture.

4.Transfer to the prepared tin and spread out evenly using the back of a metal spoon. Prick the mixture with a fork and bake for 35-40 minutes or until lightly brown. Transfer to a wire rack.

5.To make the filling: measure the chocolate, soft spread and condensed milk into a medium sized saucepan. Heat gently until the chocolate and soft spread have melted. Turn the heat up and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring continuously until the mixture starts to thicken.
