Recipe Instructions

Line an 8 x 8-inch brownie pan with parchment paper.

Place chocolate-hazelnut spread, butter, coconut oil, coconut milk, honey, and cereal flakes in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix so that all the ingredients have combined thoroughly and the cereal flakes have broken up into smaller pieces. Press mixture evenly into lined pan.

Whisk together the ingredients for the topping in a medium-sized bowl. Pour mixture over chocolate-hazelnut cereal mixture in the pan. Place in freezer or fridge for several hours to firm up.

When ready to serve, sprinkle with Maldon salt and cut into 4 x 1/2-inch size pieces. Store in fridge.
