Full credit for this recipe goes to my grandma, who used to make this on special occasions for us whilst growing up and has been an all-time favourite of mine ever since. A soft but crispy base is lathered in a moreish coat of chocolate to add a bite and make this treat even more indulgent – perfect!
I usually use a thin rectangular tin 20x30cm to make these as they are best to have a thin slice . You can use any size really it will just mean a thicker batch (but that’s nothing to complain about..). I make these quite a lot as they are so easy and don’t make much mess at all!
So, to my friends who always ask me for the recipe, and to the rest who haven’t but should try it, here ya go…
- 115g Unsalted Butter
- 1 heaped tbsp Drinking Chocolate/Cocoa Powder
- 1tbsp Granulated Sugar
- 1tbsp Golden Syrup
- 225g Digestive Biscuits
- 225g Dark/Milk Chocolate, melted
- Put the butter, drinking chocolate/cocoa powder, sugar and syrup in a pan and place on the hob on a medium/low heat. Let this all slowly melt together, stirring often.
- While this is melting, place the digestive biscuits into a sandwich bag and crush them to create crumbs, leaving a few smaller chunks.
- Once the mixture is melted add the crushed biscuits and stir everything together evenly.
- Melt the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over boiling water, making sure you stir to prevent burning!
- While this is melting, cover the base of your tin with foil (this prevents sticking and washing up). Add the biscuit mixture and flatten as much as you can into the tin making sure everything is nice and compact. Once completed, pour over the melted chocolate evenly and set aside in the fridge to set!
- This may take a good hour or so, and once set simply chop into pieces and ENJOY!
These are a prime example that simple things can bring the most happiness!
