How to make Panpepato Italian Christmas Treat

  1. Boil some water and soak the almonds for 15 minutes in the hot water.
  2. Sift flour, cocoa powder, ground spices in a bowl and mix.
  3. After the almonds are soaked for 15 minutes the skin will come off easily.
  4. Peel the almonds and add them in a bowl along with walnuts and chopped figs.
  5. Add this to the flour mixture and mix well.
  6. Preheat oven to 170 deg C for ten minutes.
  7. Grease a large square pan.
  8. Now heat up honey,chopped dark chocolate and sugar in a pan in medium heat.
  9. Once it starts to bubble lightly, simmer for two minutes without stirring. Switch off.
  10. Pour this over the flour and nut mix and combine well.
  11. If needed add a teaspoon extra honey to combine.
  12. Pour this in the greased pan and smooth the top with a spoon or ladle.
  13. Bake this mix for 25 to 30 minutes.
  14. It should be baked until just set. Mine was done in 25 minutes.
  15. Cool down and invert and slice to enjoy!

My Tip:

The original recipe used hazelnuts, I used walnuts instead. The original recipe used 2cups of dried figs. For me 1.5 cups was sufficient. Never keep the flame high in the chocolate melting step. This can be stored after cooling down in an airtight container for four weeks. You can add some mixed peel if you want.
