If you’re like me, you’ll hate it when a packet of Biscuits has broken ones in them. But, if you have this recipe to hand, you’ll always have a tasty treat to hand. They’ll last in a fridge for a week, or in the freezer for up to three weeks, so that you’ll still get the same quality taste and textures.
So simple and easy, it’s a great dish to make if you’ve got kids nearby to keep the occupied. If you prefer, use all Milk or Plain Chocolate, and other biscuits instead of Digestives used in this recipe.
To make 40 Squares
200g Dark Chocolate, minimum 60% cocoa solids
100g Milk Chocolate
3tbsp Golden Syrup
300g Unsalted Butter
300g Digestive Biscuits
75g Glace Cherries, quartered
100g Flaked Almonds, toasted
1. Break the Chocolate into pieces, and place into a large bowl of Golden Syrup and the Butter, then stand over a pan of simmering water – make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the Water though! Leave until the Chocolate has melted, stirring frequently.
2. Remove the bowl from the heat. Place the Biscuits into a large bowl, then break into pieces with a Rolling Pin. Add to the Chocolate, along with the Cherries, Sultanas and Almonds, then stir well until mixed evenly.
3. Line a shallow roasting tin with clingfilm, then pour the mixture in, and level at the top. Chill for at least two hours before cutting into squares, then storing until you need or want them!
