Chocolate Crackle and Peanut Caramel Slice
I've been waiting for the perfect excuse to make this. So when I threw a get together this weekend just gone these were the first thing on my list of party food.
The slice starts off with a layer of chocolate shortbread.
Smother that in a peanutty caramel mixture.
Then cover with chocolate crackle truffles. Loooots of truffles.
I sprinkled them with more peanuts, sliced them up into 4-truffle sizes, decorated them with chocolate sticks and dusted with cocoa.
But because this was party food, and was to be amongst many other desserts I decided to sacrifice prettiness for practicality. This is a very rich slice and should probably only be served as a large slice if having for dessert on its own. As a party food, they go further as single-truffle serves.
The following recipe makes about 80 truffles. This is much more than you need, so fill free to make a bit less, but it's hard to say no to extra chocolate crackle truffles. Alternatively, you can skip the truffles and spread the chocolate crackle mixture over the caramel layer to create a third later.
