Recipe: Daim Bars


These are crazy good... and as with most confectionary pretty few ingredients so fairly easy to make. Even if it's left up to Jamie and Barry!


  • 100 g butter
  • 275 g caster sugar
  • 50 g golden syrup
  • 100 g ground almonds
  • 300 g milk chocolate
Start caramel

Step 1

Start Caramel

Weigh the butter, sugar and syrup into a saucepan and heat on the hob, without stirring with a spoon (just occasionally swill the mixture). Heat to 150ºC.

Add the almonds

Step 2

Add The Almonds

Dump in the ground almonds when the caramel reaches 150ºC, then stir and heat back to 150ºC again.

Pour into mould to cool

Step 3

Pour Into Mould To Cool

Transfer the mixture into a silicon mould, spread flat to about 1cm thick and allow to cool slightly to harden up. Not completely cold though or it will be tricky to cut.


Step 4


Turn the slab of almond brittle out onto a board and cut into your bar-shaped pieces whilst it's still a little warm and won't crack.

Coat in chocolate

Step 5

Coat In Chocolate

Melt the milk chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, then use to coat the cooled dime bars. (Best done by arranging the bars on a wire rack over a tray then dribbling the chocolate over to get a smooth finish.)

Cover the bottom

Step 6

Cover The Bottom

Cool to set, then turn over and chocolate coat the bottoms. Cool again before serving.
