Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut Chocolate Chunk Cake Bars are delicious and moist cake bars loaded with Cadbury fruit and nut chocolate chunks, flaked almonds and raisins. Enjoyed as a dessert or with a cup of coffee.
Chocolate is not cheating! After a salty meal, you need a little bit of sweet. This is living, not cheating.
I am totally in acceptance with the saying. After a nice hearty meal instead of feeling full, I crave something extra. It’s not veggies or meat I crave for, it’s something SWEET. Yes I just need something sweet after my meal. Be it some kind of chutney or cakes, puddings or few pieces of a chocolate.. I just need it!
And I know majority of you will agree with me on this… 🙂
What’s is the connection with this cake bar and Cadbury Fruit & Nut?
Well few days back, right after the lunch hubby and I as usual needed something sweet. I make chutney or some kinda dessert to satiate our after meal cravings. But that day I was outta everything except for a bar of Cadbury Fruit and Nut chocolate.
My hubby always sees to it that we never run out of fruit and nut chocolate at home. He always remembers to pick up a huge bar of this chocolate whenever we are out shopping. Well you know it’s his favourite. My big baby(hubby) is a Fruit and Nut Fanatic.. 😉
Lets continue.. Where was I?? Yes! so while enjoying this delicious bars, hubbs out of the blue asked me whether I can make any kinda dessert out of this fruit and nut bars. And the wheels in my brains started turning and churning in inspiration of some ideas. And I got the idea to use it in cookies and as a topping on Coffee Cake bars.
That is how this Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut Chocolate Chunk Cake Bars was born. I made a coffee cake batter and topped the batter with Cadbury fruit and nut chocolate chunks, flaked almonds and extra raisins. This cake bars are perfectly moist and delicious and can be eaten as a coffee cake or as a dessert. My big baby loved it to bits and so did my friends.. And it didn’t last me a day.. And I have already been requested to make it once again. So you can understand the deliciousness of this bars.. 🙂
So friends, just rush to the kitchen and whip up this Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut Chocolate Chunk Cake Bars. Perfect dessert for kids as well as adults.. 🙂
