Method

 
PLace Stork Bake in a thick based pan and heat over gentle heat until completely melted.

Place chickpea flour in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle the milk in and rub to obtain a coarse texture.

Add the melted Stork Bake and stir-fry for up to 2 minutes - gently folding until the flour is a shade darker and the fat begins to surface.

Remove from heat and add the almonds and nutmeg. Sift in milk powder and icing sugar.

When cool enough to handle, knead until smooth and pliable. Cut into pieces when cooled.
