Ethan asked me to make some Titan bars. If you know Aldi you will know that is their version of the Mars Bar. For some reason my kids just think i can do anything! lol So i set about to find a recipe, thinking that surely someone has made these before. I couldn't find ANY easy recipe. Most called for nougat and to make nougat you need a candy thermometer, apparently. Well that's just all too hard for me. So i started thinking of what was sort of like nougat in texture and taste but didn't require me
So i came up with this recipe. I've tried it twice with great success. If something doesn't work for you, let me know! Also let me know if it DOES work for you. My kids love them and they get gobbled up in no time. I thought my sister was going to drool all over my kitchen bench when i asked her to try them. ;)
1 packet of marshmallows (375g)
1 packet of milk chocolate melts
1 packet columbines caramels
1/2 tin condensed milk
1.5 packets of chocolate melts for dipping
2 tablespoons copha
So here we are....mmmmm...goodness.....
Step 1. Melt 1 packet of milk chocolate melts over low heat.
Step 2. Melt your marshmallows in a microwave bowl. 60-90 seconds on high should do the trick. depending on your microwave. Stir to combine. (don't worry that they are pink...they won't be pink in the end)
Step 3. Place melted chocolate and marshmallows in a mixmaster with a whisk. Whip until it is combined and it is hard to mix. If your chocolate and 'mallows are quite hot this may take some time. You can cool them slightly before you mix them together if you like. But don't leave it too long or it will be hard and you won't get them mixed together right.
Step 6. In a saucepan melt over low heat your caramels and condensed milk.
