Sift flour into bowl and add cubed butter. Using your fingertips, rub butter and flour together until the mix resembles breadcrumbs. Add sugar and lightly stir to combine.



step 3


Press mixture into prepared tin, using the back of a spoon to achieve a smooth, even layer. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside to cool in the tin.



step 6


In the meantime, empty caramel into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Lightly whisk caramel until smooth.



step 6


Once the base has cooled, pour caramel over and spread evenly. Sprinkle the chopped peanuts over the caramel and lightly press.



step 6


Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pot of gently simmering water and melt, stirring occasionally. Allow chocolate to cool slightly then pour over the peanut studded caramel.



step 6


Leave slice aside to cool and set (avoid placing slice in the refrigerator as the chocolate will bloom) for at least 3 hours before slicing into squares.
