It’s been years since I’ve had these wafers in my mouth or on my mind … until these ready-made wafers caught my eye in the supermarket. I spoke to my grandmother and asked her how she made these into delicious wafers. The recipe is simple but a far cry from health food … but so delicious. These images are here for my grandmother to see what happened after we spoke.
As instructed I tossed everything into the pot and cooked into into a thick paste.
As I poured on the first layer onto the wafer I realized (actually Andreea realized first) there was nowhere near enough to create 3 or 4 layers.
Indeed it was enough for only two layers.
So I cut the spread wafers in two and piled them one on top of the other and covered them with another half-wafer.
I then wrapped it all in tin-foil and put some weight on it for half a day.
Then this evening, as I was making us a herbal tea I unwrapped the package and this is what I found.
I cut them up like I remember my grandmother used to.
… and voila 🙂
- 150 grams of ground nuts & peanuts
- 3/4 cup of honey
- 200 grams of margarine (I used butter)
- 1 spoon of Cocoa
- 1 spoon of Rum baking essence.
All cooked together for 10-15 minutes and then spread on the wafers 🙂
