Nuts and Bolts
« on: November 30, 2023, 06:55:08 pm »
I have often seen references on here to Nuts and Bolts, but have neither tried nor made it, but this year I think I will give it a go for small gifts to neighbouring businesses who have supported us this year with great service.  What is everyone's favourite recipe?

I use Cookies recipe but add Aldi sugar coated macadamia nuts. Or even lots of macadamia nuts.

Yum. I make a batch 2 or 3 times a year.

I bought the soup mixes today - the chicken one was labelled " Cream of ..." so I hope it will be OK.  I am working on the assumption that the soup has never seen a chicken, but the "chicken" in the list of ingredients comprises chemicals mixed to taste like chicken; I am not sure what the "Cream" part is but hopefully it will work!  It is actually quite hard to find powdered soup mixes these days, they are all in tins or pre-made in plastic 'pouches'.

Thanks for the roast nuts suggestion, Chookie, roasted nuts always taste that much better so I will definitely got for them.

I will probably make these next week in plenty of time to hand them out to the various recipients.

DJ, if you go to the original Mrs Masons Nuts nuts and Bolts recipe on the forum there is a bit of discussion about the UK equivalent of Nutri Grain - I think this is the link posted by Chookie:  https://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=10974.0

I always use a packet of mixed roasted nuts too. It's much easier.

Thanks cuilidh
Too funny I found myself asking sales question in 2012!
Unfortunately Start, the Uk equivalent was discontinued in 2018, so Iím stuck unless cheerios work. Theyíre less appealing, for sure.
Thanks anyway.
I loved nutrigrain when I was in Australia in Ď82.
