Recipe video above. Not a single bowl is required to make these bars! Everything is put together right in the cake pan. Hot contender for the world's best emergency baked goodie!Tastes: caramel-y, chewy, chocolatey and peanuty. Like a caramel slice but with peanuts - and much faster to make!

    How to


    Preheat oven to 180C/350F (160C fan-forced)


    Line pan - Lightly spray a 20cm/8" square pan with oil then press in a sheet of paper (no need to be meticulous here).


    Melt butter - Place the butter in the pan then melt in the oven for 5 minutes.


    Biscuit base - Swirl pan to spread butter then sprinkle over crushed biscuits. Spread then gently press down (again, I am not meticulous about evenness here).


    Layer - Scatter over the coconut, followed by about 2/3 of the peanuts and choc chips (reserve some for the top). Pour over condensed milk, spread for even coverage. Top with remaining nuts and chocolate chips.


    Bake for 30 minutes or until the edge of the surface is golden brown.


    Fully cool before cutting (3 hours on counter, or 1 hr counter + 1 hr fridge). Remove using paper overhang then cut and eat!
