Fuel Your Black Friday Spending Spree… Chocolate Nutty Triangle Bites

Everyone needs a sweet treat for the biggest xmas shopping spending spree! These delicious nutty chocolaty bites are a real treat for anyone busy shopping all day.     


Nutty Topping

  • 100g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 100g Unsalted Butter
  • 150g Hazelnuts
  • 60g Ground Almonds or Ground Hazelnuts
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 3 Tbsp Apricot Jam or Marmalade

Shortbread Base

  • 185g Unsalted Butter
  • 250g Plain Flour
  • 85g Golden Caster Sugar
  • ¼ Tsp Salt

Topping To finish

  • 150g Dark Chocolate



  • Preheat over to 180 c or gas 4 and line a cake baking tin with greaseproof paper.


  • Chop hazelnuts into small pieces. Place the butter, sugar and water for the nutty topping in a saucepan to melt together and stir in the chopped hazelnuts and the ground almonds. Mix well together and set aside to cool.


  • Combine the flour, sugar and salt then rub in the butter with your fingertips so it becomes a dough. Press the dough into a greaseproof paper lined baking tin and use a fork to lightly prick the surface.


  • Spread the apricot jam / marmalade over the dough then spoon over the cooled nut topping mixture and spread to cover. Bake in the preheated oven for around 25 minutes until golden brown.


  • Allow to stand and cool. Cut into six equal squares then cut each square on the diagonal to form 12 triangles.


  • Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water (or in the microwave if you prefer). Dip or spoon the melted chocolate over each corner point of the triangles. Allow to stand and set.


  • Enjoy!
