Chocolate Caramel Bites



Mmm, these were a treat! Best kept in the fridge, but enjoyable no matter what!

Base:
1/2 cup plain flour, sifted
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup ground almonds
65 g butter, melted

Filling:
380 g can Top N Fill Caramel (see note)
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter

Icing:
60 g butter
150 g dark chocolate



Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease two, 12 x 1 1/2 tablespoon (30ml) mini muffin pans.
To make base: Combine flour, sugar, almonds and butter. Press 1 teaspoon of mixture into base of each muffin hole.

To make filling: Mix caramel filling and peanut butter together. Spoon over base so it is three-quarters full. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until firm. Remove from oven. Set aside to cool.

To make icing: Melt butter and chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat and spoon over each caramel bite. Place in fridge to set. When set, use a flat-bladed knife to remove from muffin pans.

Notes and tips:
Note: Top N Fill Caramel is a pre-made, thick caramel filling. It can be found in the baking aisle of your supermarket [I'm not sure if it is in North America or not].

Hi Kath! I really should figure out how to look at your blog more often! You have such cool things on it! This recipe looks so yummy -I really wanted to try to lose some weight after Christmas but now that it's over & we still have tons of chocolates (unopened Purdy's too!) and other goodies I am not so sure I can diet yet! Maybe the excerise part will be easier! Keep up with the blogging even if we don't look often - it's a great way to see what lovely creations you are producing! Love you! Mom

Ah! Thank you so much for posting this. I've been searching online everywhere and this is the only place I've been able to find it. I can't even find this recipe on Taste.com.au

Off to check out the rest of your blog now. :)
