The other day I made some salty balls.

Salty Balls. Yes. I made Salty Balls. Say it with me. Salty Balls.
Actually, what I wanted to make was Macadamia Brittle. 
What I ended up with was a tray of salted caramel that didn’t go hard. I couldn’t put it to waste so I decided to blitz it and see what happened. 
Oh happy joy. Joy! We ended up with salted caramel macadamia balls which are DIVINE.

You want:
  • Half cup Rice Malt Syrup (from Coles or the Health food shop)
  • Half cup butter
  • 2 teaspoons of sea salt
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups of raw macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut (optional)
  1. Put all ingredients in a small saucepan on the stove top. 
  2. Stir until the butter melts. 
  3. What you want now is for the mixture to start to bubble and foam. Let it foam up/boil for about 10 seconds, be careful that it doesn’t spill over.
  4. Take if off the heat and pour into a baking paper lined brownie pan and chill overnight.
  5. Scrape the mixture into a food processor. Blitz it slightly so you still have a few crunchy pieces of macadamia left. Don’t over process it. Roll into balls and coat them in desiccated coconut and pop them back in the fridge.
  6. Show off and serve them to all your mates.
This is the part where you thank me.

  1. Made these today with coconut oil instead of butter. Didn't get the caramel thing happening but they are still yummo! They even got the thumbs up from my fussy daughter!
