Crunchy Beetroot Peanut Cuties

WP_20151001_009

You know what, I’m addicted to making desserts with beetroot at the moment. The combination of smooth beetroot and the crunchiness from biscuit is heavenly. Poppy seeds are playing a big part in this crunchiness!

I made the biscuit in a frying pan. You could use the oven but using a frying pan also works for this amount. You just need to keep stirring the mixture so it doesn’t burn, until all the moisture goes.

Please make sure to defrost the cuties until they are not too hard to bite into. This way you can enjoy the best taste and the texture.

I used 2 x chocolate moulds and 6 x mini cupcake moulds. But you can use any moulds, cake tins or dish.
