Sylvain and Jeanne bake Miracle Bars

Two weeks ago I went to a beekeeping meeting (yes, I keep bees, must write about that some time) where some particularly lovely cakes were served. Called 'Miracle Bars' they are a delicious medley of biscuit, coconut, chocolate, nuts and caramel - yes, the five main food groups. The host kindly shared the recipe with me and a couple of days ago I had a crack at them.

Ingredients below, then method demonstrated by Sylvain and Jeanne. They are ludicrously easy to make, a little rabbit and goose were easily up to the job...


100g butter, melted
125g Digestive biscuit crumbs
175g Chocolate chips
75g dessicated coconut
125g chopped mixed nuts
400g can condensed milk

Bake in a 9" tin at 180C / 160C fan / 350F / Mk 4 for 30 mins


Sylvain assembles the ingredients

And Jeanne brings the coconut

Digestive biscuit crumbs go into a tin

Melted butter then chocolate chips on the top

Then coconut and mixed nuts - we used hazelnuts and walnuts

Jeanne goose can't keep her beak out!

Pour a tin of condensed milk over the top
(Sylvain has passed out in the background, too many chocolate drops)

Nibble a biscuit while the Miracle Bars bake...

And voila...

...delicious nutty sweet cake bars!
