So, it is no secret that Sparkle Belly Corner Recipes often feature chocolate, peanuts, and salt/sweet combinations because it’s sooo deeeelish! So, of course, when you constantly dream of these combinations – something yummy is going to be created.
And with this recipe, the Sparkle Ellie fans were asked to name them. It was so difficult… in fact too difficult. So we combined two of the most popular names as voted by the fans. Congratulations Charlene Weiss and Jodie Bedeker for coming up with Caram’Ellies and Oh My Sparkle Nutz (respectively). Your names had a brief love affair and Sparkle Nutz Caram’Ellies was born. You both can choose any of the Sparkle Belly Corner Recipes for me to make for you (inbox me for the details and for the t’s and c’s).
Without further ado – let’s bring this sparkly recipe to you…
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 CUP OF GOLDEN SYRUP
1 CUP OF MUSCOVADO/BROWN SUGAR
1 ½ AND ½ CUPS OF PEANUT BUTTER, SEPARATE
1 TSP VANILLA ESSENCE
¼ TSP SALT
½ BOX OF BETTA SNACK CARAMEL CHOC BISCUITS
½ BOX OF EET-SUM-MORS
½ CUP AND ½ CUP OF SALTED PEANUTS, CRUSHED*
200G SLABS CARAMEL CHOCOLATE
150G SLAB DARK CHOCOLATE
150G SLAB MILK CHOCOLATE
EDIBLE GLITTER, CRUSHED NUTS, VANILLA ICE-CREAM (OPTIONAL)
HOW TO MAKE THIS YUMMINESS:
#1 Spray a 13X9 inch (33×23 cm) tray with non-stick spray.
#2 You can line this with baking paper or a silicone mat and spray this with non-stick spray; it just makes life less stressful. PS. I cut my silicone mat to fit my tray #yolo.
#3 Line the tray with broken up pieces of chocolate biscuits (Betta Snacks) and shortbread (Eet-Sum-Mors). You can chuck some crushed peanuts in the mix too.
#4 In a medium saucepan, combine the golden syrup and sugar and heat on a medium-high temperature.
#5 Once this is boiling, remove from the heat.
#6 Add 1 ½ cups of peanut butter, salt, vanilla essence and stir. You can pop it back on the heat to melt the peanut butter; just don’t burn the mix.
#7 Pour this mix over the broken-up biscuits and peanuts. Then spread evenly (not flattened). Set aside in the fridge for now. Make sure it is level or it will set topsy-turvy.
#8 Now, break the pieces of caramel chocolate up and melt in the microwave.
#9 Melt for one minute and then melt at ten-second intervals; taking out and stirring it. Do this until it is completely melted.
#10 Remove the tray from the fridge and pour over the caramel chocolate.
#11 Spread this gently – covering the toffee mix.
#12 Pour the salted peanuts over the caramel mix. Pop this back in the fridge while dealing with the next step.
#13 Break up the dark chocolate and milk chocolate slab and add ½ cup of peanut butter. Melt in increments (as mentioned above). Then remove the tray from the fridge.
#14 Pour the last bit of the chocolate mix over the caramel. Carefully! Or you won’t have layers. But if it does mix it’s okay; it mixes in your tummy in any case.
#15 Allow to cool at room temperature and then pop in the fridge to set. If you pop the mix straight in the fridge the chocolate may go funny (as in peculiar not haha funny).**
#16 Cut in squares and decorate.
* Sparkle Note 1: I only crushed some of the peanuts; I kept some of them whole for added texture.
** Sparkle Note 2: I wrapped the tray with a clean dishcloth just to make sure the moisture in the fridge didn’t mess with the yumminess.

Thank you for the name! I am glad you like the recipe – please remember to choose a recipe from Sparkle Ellie for me to make for you.
Have a lovely day!
I haven’t seen caramel chocolate for a long time now! Which one are you using here?
I actually never use “baking” chocolate as I hate the taste. But you are right you can’t get caramel chocolate in the normal chocolate section. I got it at my local Spar’s baking section (where all the mixes, sprinkles, food colouring stuffies are) and it’s called “Melt Easy – Caramel Chocolate”. I know you can buy large quantities at Baker’s Bin and various online shops.
Hope you come right!
