I’m the first to admit that I’m pretty rubbish in the kitchen. I make the worst bread & butter pudding and the worst fridge cake in the world! However, there are a few things I excel at, and my CocoChocoNutty Layer Bars are one of them!
I’ve made these layer bars many many times over the years. It’s a classic that never fails to be loved by Dave, myself, family and friends – and never goes wrong! This is the first time I’ve made it with the boys though, and the first time they’ve had any – I can tell you it was a huge hit!
These layer bars are so easy and simple – you literally are just sprinkling layer on top of layer, before baking.
Moist, Chewy, Delicious Layer Bars
I’m pretty sure that after you’ve made these once, you’ll be making them time and time again. In fact – I know you will! Unless of course you don’t like nuts, or chocolate, or coconut – in which case you wouldn’t be making it to begin with hey!
Let’s crack on.
For These Layer Bars You Will Need
- 9×9 inch tin – lined with baking paper
- 115g unsalted butter
- 150g digestive biscuits (Graham Crackers) – crushed
- 85g dessicated coconut
- 180g chocolate chips
- 100g chopped nuts (any – I use mixed nuts)
- 1 tin of condensed milk (UK tins are 396g)
- Pre-heat oven to 180c/gas mark 4
- Melt the butter and pour evenly over the base of your lined tin
- Sprinkle the biscuit crumbs evenly all over
- Sprinkle the coconut evenly all over
- Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly all over
- Sprinkle the nuts evenly all over
- Drizzle the condensed milk evenly all over
- Bake in the pre-heated oven for around 30 minutes (check that a knife or skewer comes out clean-ish)
- Cool completely and cut into slices
Ta-da! CocoChocoNutty Layer Bars!
What you’ll end up with are slices of deliciously moist, chewy, coconutty, chocolatey, nuttiness! They are so more-ish!
Could it get any easier? Like I said, this is a really good recipe to do with young kids. Just put each ingredient into a bowl, put them out on the table and then all they have to do is grab a spoon and get sprinkling!
Just make sure you keep an eye that they are sprinkling evenly all over, otherwise you’ll end up with mounds that you’ll need to kind of ‘rake’ over. Also, be sure to tell them not to mix!
If it’s not already blazingly obvious, then please note that this recipe contains nuts, dairy products, wheat, gluten, and loads of calories – enjoy!
