How to make a ‘brothers’ bar’
It’s been a long time since I’ve shared a recipe for a brothers bar, but I’ve finally cracked the code.
I’ve made my first ever recipe for my brothers bars, and they’re so good, it’s just the icing on the cake.
The only problem?
There’s nothing like a little bit of time, so I had to get creative.
You might be wondering how to make your own.
If you’re new to this recipe, you might want to take a look at my previous post on how to create your own brothers cocktail.
For the breadcrumbsFirst, I’m going to make my own breadcrumb mix.
It’s a mix of all-purpose flour, which is the base of all breadcrumbles.
Soak your breadcrumble mix for a couple of hours in warm water to get it to a soft, crumbly consistency.
Take the bread crumbs out of the water, and roll them out into a log shape.
Add a bit of salt, and a pinch of pepper.
Place the log in a baking dish and cover it with a baking mat, then bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
When the log is done, turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Using a fork, gently mix in the melted butter.
Remove from the pan and let sit for 15 minutes.
Using a food processor, blend the bread crunch mix into a thick paste.
Put the paste into a small bowl and let it sit for at least five minutes before cutting into the dough.
Once the dough is cool enough to handle, divide it into six equal parts.
Add the breads to the dough, and knead the mixture together for about two minutes.
Then, roll the dough into a ball, about 1/4 inch thick.
Place each ball into a baking pan and bake for 30 minutes.
For the fillingIn a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, cocoa powder, honey, and vanilla.
Stir the mixture until the sugar is dissolved, then add the water and stir until the mixture has dissolved completely.
Mix in the remaining ingredients.
Roll the dough out into an even ball, and then shape into a cookie cutter.
Remove the cookies from the baking pan, and place them onto a cookie sheet.
Cover them with foil and let them bake for 45 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and slightly firm to the touch.
After 45 minutes have passed, remove the foil and allow them to cool slightly before serving.
For the chocolate If you’d like to make the chocolate yourself, you can use an electric mixer or an electric pastry bag to beat the chocolate until smooth.
Use an electric whisk or a hand mixer to beat in the chocolate, then stir until smooth, then pour into the cooled cookie dough.
Allow the cookies to cool to room temperature before adding to the bread mix.
For a sweet twist on the cookie, you can add a few drops of the caramel colour to the mix to give it a ‘candy twist’.
Place the chocolate chips on a plate and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
