Jammy Shortcake Biscuit Bites – another no-bake tray bake which is super sweet and simple to make.

Jammy Dodgers jammy shortbread biscuit bites tray bake recipe no baking uk

I think I’m on a no-bake roll. Last week it was Mars Bar and Rice Krispies cake bites, this week I’ve been making tray bake using one of my favourite biscuits: Jammy Dodgers.

My mum passed on the original recipe to me from one of Nadiya Hussain’s baking columns in The Times Magazine. I made a couple of changes to the recipe quantities and method, fortunately without any negative repercussions!

A note on Jammy Dodgers

If you’re not familiar with Jammy Dodgers, each biscuit is made up of two circles of shortbread, wedged together with a sticky layer of strawberry jam. The original biscuit is made here in the UK by Burtons, but a lot of supermarkets make their own cheaper versions. I used Aldi’s own version of the classic biscuit, which you can see in the picture below.

Recipe | Chocolate peanut butter squares

 Easy to make. Easier to eat!

This no-bake recipe comes originally from Nigella Lawson’s baking bible, How to Be a Domestic Goddess. I made a couple of changes to the ingredients, simply to fit the recipe to what I had in the cupboard. More about that below…

Nigella makes the excellent comparison between these and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups/ Reese’s Pieces. For anyone who has no idea what those are, I would say that if you like chocolate and peanut butter then you can’t go wrong with these chocolate peanut butter squares 🙂

I haven’t had much time for baking recently, so this week I went for a no-bake option. Although I guess this is still a “tray bake”?

Recipe | Easy Maltesers rocky road (one for chocoholics!)

Rocky road is an easy and versatile recipe. In addition to chocolate, marshmallow and biscuit you can add almost any ingredients you want – I chose Maltesers!

Malteasers rocky road chocolate and marshmallows recipe

Rocky road is a great recipe. At heart it is a “no bake tray bake” (if that makes any sense!) which allows you to make your own chocolate bars with very little effort or mess.

But before I can continue, I have to ask: who knew Maltesers wasn’t spelt Malteasers? I have been spelling it (if only mentally) as “Malteasers” with the extra ‘a’ my whole life! But no, my friends, it’s Maltesers.

*quiet sigh of disillusionment*

Now I’ve said my piece about that, let’s get on with the rocky road recipe!
