Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Combine oil and garlic in a small bowl, pour over bread mixture, season to taste and mix well with your hands to combine. Stand for bread to soak (30 minutes), then spread on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake, stirring occasionally, until golden and crisp (50 minutes-1 hour). Cool, coarsely crumble and set aside.
  • 02
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add onion, chilli and garlic and stir occasionally until tender (4-5 minutes). Add tomato and stir occasionally until beginning to break down (3-4 minutes), then add vongole and wine, season to taste, cover with a lid and cook, shaking pan occasionally, until vongole open. Serve hot, scattered with tomato crumbs.
