Ingredients

Aluminium Foil

1 tablespoon of Butter or cooking spray

1 stick of unsalted Butter

2 cups of cracker crumbs( any of the available crackers would do), set aside 1/2 a cup to layer

Use a 8 or 9 inch square baking pan, line the dish with the Aluminium foil and butter it.

Microwave the butter for 20 seconds to melt it.

Pulse the graham crackers until they are crumbly, make sure not to pulse until they become too fine.

Transfer the cracker crumbs into a bowl and pour in the oil and sugar, mix well.

Spread the crumbs evenly on the baking dish and press the mixture firmly into the pan.

Bake for 8 minutes over 170C. once done, let it cool for a few minutes.

Add a thin layer of crumbs over the Chocolate.

Sprinkle the Cashew nuts over the previous layer.

Gently pour in the Condensed milk evenly and let it settle into the layers.

Don’t mix in the ingredients together at any point of the process but let the layers be as they are.

Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes over 170C.

Once baked, remove from oven and leave it to completely cool. place it in the refrigerator for 1 hour for this purpose.

Recipe Notes

1/To readers from Sri Lanka, the ingredients I use are local and can be found in any supermarkets. The bottom layer is made of local biscuits, they are the square one’s you’ll find at stores.(apologies, can’t name the brands).

2/ To keep it budget-friendly and ease of finding ingredients, instead of chocolate chips, I’m using cooking chocolate slabs roughly crushed, I’ve kept the chocolate pieces slightly large, this is my personal preference. I like biting into pieces of chocolate, I like textures but you may not, if so replace them with chocolate chips.

3/The two most important steps in the following recipe are,

1/to bake the crust for 8 minutes then leaving it to cool.

2/Before cutting them into bars, you need to refrigerate the bars for at least 1-2 hours.

4/Instead of Cashew nuts, you can add your choice of nuts or maybe a mix of it?

4/ Some of you might find the bars too sweet, keeping this in mind I would suggest cutting the bars into smaller squares.
