Recipe of the Week | Cherry & Pistachio Chocolate Squares

Cherry & Pistachio Chocolate Squares

An easy, no-bake recipe that’s perfect to make with children.

It may be naughty,
but it’s very VERY nice!

Cherry & Pistachio Chocolate Squares

  • Servings: 20 squares
  • Time: 20 mins plus chilling
  • Difficulty: medium
  • Print

Calories 211 per portion
Fat 13g (6.6g sat) per portion
Suitable for vegetarians
Suitable for freezing

Ingredients

  • Butter 125g (4½oz), diced
  • Dark chocolate 300g (11oz), broken into squares
  • Golden syrup 3 tbsp
  • Glacé cherries 100g (3½oz), halved
  • Pistachio nuts 50g (2oz), chopped
  • Sultanas 50g (2oz)
  • Digestive biscuits 200g pack, broken into pieces

Instructions

  1. Line a 20cm (8in) square tin with clingfilm.
  2. Put the butter, chocolate and golden syrup into a large microwave-proof bowl. Microwave on medium power for 1-2 minutes until the chocolate has melted, stirring after every 20 seconds and checking the chocolate does not overheat.
  3. Add the other ingredients and mix well. Spoon into the prepared tin and spread out evenly. Leave to cool.
  4. Chill for at least an hour (or until set) and then remove from the tin, peel off the cling film and cut into 20 squares.

Cook’s tips
Take care when melting the chocolate – if it is cooked for too long it will seize.
These squares will keep for a week wrapped in foil in the fridge or freeze for 3 months.
Use any dried fruits you have in the cupboard.

Goat’s Cheese Soufflés with a Walnut Salad

Goat’s Cheese Soufflés with a Walnut Salad

  • Servings: 4
  • Time: 45mins
  • Difficulty: medium
  • Print

Calories 520 per portion
Fat 42.9g (19.6g saturated)
Suitable for vegetarians

Ingredients

  • Butter 75g (3oz)
  • Parmesan-style vegetarian cheese 50g (2oz), finely grated
  • Plain flour 50g (2oz)
  • Full fat milk 300ml (½ pint)
  • Rindless goat’s cheese 100g (3½oz), broken into pieces
  • Eggs 4, separated
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Ground nutmeg a couple of generous pinches
  • Mixed salad leaves 50g (2oz), such as watercress, baby spinach and rocket
  • Walnut pieces 25g (1oz)
  • Olive oil 2 tbsp
  • Lime 1, juice only

Instructions

  1. Melt 25g (1oz) of the butter and use it to grease four 200ml (7fl oz) soufflé dishes. Then sprinkle with some of the Parmesan-style cheese. This gives the soufflés something to stick to as they rise. Set the dishes on a baking sheet.
  2. Melt the remaining butter in a large saucepan, add the flour and mix well. Remove the pan from the heat and gradually add the milk, whisking well after each addition. Then return the pan to the heat and bring the sauce to the boil, whisking all the time. Continue cooking for about 1 minute, still whisking, until you have a smooth thick sauce. Remove the pan from the heat and leave to cool for 10 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/Gas 6.
  3. Beat in the goat’s cheese and remaining Parmesan-style cheese. Then beat in the egg yolks. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  4. Whisk the egg whites with an electric hand whisk until they form stiff peaks. Fold one-third into the cheese sauce with a metal spoon, then gently fold in the rest. Spoon the mix into the prepared dishes and bake for 15–20 minutes or until golden and well risen.
  5. Drizzle the salad and walnuts with oil and lime juice and serve as soon as the soufflés come out of the oven.

Don’t miss our amazing HALF PRICE cookbook and WIN a Kitchen Craft Egg Poacher

Eggs are a staple in our house – not only do they provide the magic ingredient in cakes and bakes but they’re also a fridge staple that can be thrown in with almost anything to add valuable protein, vitamins and minerals.

Just one egg provides us with 6.2g protein as well as 56 per cent of our recommended daily allowance of vitamin B12, 32 per cent of vitamin D and 18 per cent of riboflavin. These vitamins are essential for the formation of red blood cells, regulation of metabolism, maintenance of bones and teeth and for the absorption of vitamin C. Eggs also contain vitamin A, folate, biotin, phosphorus, iodine and selenium.
