No Bake Choco Nutty Bars | How to make Choco Nutty bars without oven

Whats not to like about Chocolate and nuts ? Well if the two come together in a quick to make and No-bake Chocolate nuggets, they disappear like magic.. even my Lil angel was licking her fingers and asked for seconds, just like her elder sis :-)) 

Fuss Free. Chocolate. Nuts - Its that simple. Do try it out as this makes its way to BM # 46 under Nuts and Legumes theme and Valli's event - Kids Delight Lunch Box with Nuts and Legumes .


Prep time : 15 mins | Cook time : 15 mins
Freeze time : min 1 hour
Makes : approx 250 gms of Choco Nut bars (about 20 medium pieces)

Ingredients:
  • Marie biscuits - or any sugarfree or low sugar biscuits - 10 Nos (cookies is not suitable)
  • Cooking Chocolate - I used Morde - 100 gms
  • Walnuts - 50 gms
  • Almonds - 100 gms
  • Pistachio and Cashew - 50 gms (total)
  • Butter - 50 gms
  • Milk - 1/3 cup (I used less than this)
  • Powdered Sugar - 1/3 cup
  • Vanilla Essence - 1/2 TBSP



Method:
  1. Dry Roast all the nuts individually for 3-4 mins each. Cool and powder separately. I let it be a lil chunky so they have a bite. Powder the biscuits too separately (I put them in a ziploc and used the rolling pin to crush them)
  2. Grate Chocolate finely. (I made pieces of the frozen chocolate and blitzed it in the spice grinder in spurts till I got a fine powder). 
  3. On a double boiler, melt the chocolate , milk and butter together for 4-5 mins till you get a glossy ganache kind of mixture. Tip in the sugar and vanilla essence and take it off the flame.
  4. Now, add the ground nuts one by one and mix slowly till you get a thickish mass. Spread on a greased and lined plate. 
  5. Set aside till room temperature. Mark the pieces out with a greased knife.
  6. Set in the refirigerator for 45 mins - 1 hour (this wait is killing, but totally worth it - dont rush this stage).
  7. Once the pieces begin to peel away, cut out pieces and serve immediately.
  8. Keeps under refrigeration for upto 1 week - 10 days.
