Sunflower Seed Butter Crunchies
I think it's safe to say that every South African knows exactly what a crunchie is, and how delicious they are. A warm cup of tea and a crunchie takes me right back to my childhood, and what a delightful trip of nostalgia it is.
This right here is a delicious twist on that traditional sweet treat, using our Crunchy Sunflower Seed Butter , and it is the perfect treat to whip up this weekend!
For the crunchies:
175g salted butter
75g white sugar (6 tbsp)
75g brown sugar (6 tbsp)
45ml golden syrup (3 tbsp)
5ml Bicarbonate of soda (1 tsp)
100g Blooming Goods Crunchy Sunflower Seed Butter

90g desiccated coconut (1 cup)
For the chocolate drizzle:
80g milk chocolate

To make the chocolate drizzle, finely chop the chocolate then place in a heatproof
bowl. Melt in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds until melted and smooth (or
melt over a double boiler).
Stir in the sunflower seed butter. Use a spoon to drizzle over the crunchy squares,
or place in a piping bag and pipe fine zigzag patterns over the squares.
