Toblerone Brownies - AlphaBakes
I wanted to bake a batch of brownies for CT to take back to his place for the weekend, so was pleased when inspiration suddenly struck, and I remembered Toblerone. Little did I realise that it's very hard to get hold of Toblerone outside of Christmas or Father's Day - where are the plain and white varieties that are around then?
usual low saturated fat brownie recipe to accentuate the almond and honey flavours of Toblerone - I replaced 50g of the white caster sugar with honey, 30g of the flour with ground almonds and used a few drops of almond extract instead of vanilla. I added a chopped 100g bar of milk Toblerone instead of any other chocolate or nuts, and sprinkled on a few flaked almonds before baking.
This was an interesting variation, but I had wanted to use dark and white Toblerone for a better visual effect, and I wasn't too sure that I liked the use of honey in the batter - the flavour wasn't quite right for my tastes although no-one else mentioned it.
