Thermomix Nussecken

No Ratings So Far
Thermomix Nussecken aka Flapjacks are a German classic. It means nut corner and is an afternoon tea snack in our region. They are similar to a flapjack, although much more delicate and nutty. On a special occasion my mum and I would make Nussecken together. Normally just before someone’s birthday or if we knew family was coming over. I loved experimenting with the chocolate when I was little and it is also a great way to use up leftover chocolates from Easter and Christmas that have been waiting to be used for ages. My mum has a secret passion for Nussecken and whenever there was a birthday around the corner she would use the opportunity to make them and say to me that there is no birthday without Nussecken. She was the one who would always finish the little crumbs because they were the tastiest. Thermomix Nussecken are the perfect combination of a sweet and crumbly biscuit base, followed by tangy apricot jam and crunchy but soft and wholesome nut mixture, dipped in dark chocolate on its edges. It is the perfect balance between chewy and crunch. Have you ever made these German little treats? Leave me a comment.

    Can I sub the apricot jam for a different flavour (like strawberry?), or does that totally change/ruin it?!

      Of course you can 🙂 whichever flavour you like. It’s just tradition to make it with apricot jam 🙂
