These are one of my most popular recipe’s and a definite party pleaser these are an all round favourite and it’s easy to see why!
Full of sugar, chunky chocolate and crumbly biscuits, make these my absolute favourite treat for a cheat day! (I would eat them everyday but then I would be the size of a house!) Make no mistake these are in no way healthy! (you’re going to love them anyway – you can hate me later).
Incorporating my “Perfect Dunking Biscuits” that I previously posted is a great way to use up any leftovers (unlikely in this house)
AND these are no-bake – do you have a fridge (refrigerator)? good that’s all you will need = easy peasy!
The kids will love making these too because they can get their hands in and get messy.
100g Biscuits – I used my own Tea biscuits, you could also use digestives/malted milk biscuits or oreos too!
100g Raisins (could also add tried fruit/nuts(small nuts)
50g Glace Cherries
2 TBSP Golden Syrup
You can also choose to add sweeties such as smarties!
You can swap out my dunking biscuits for oreos OR try adding in some of your favourite sweets (e.g. smarties) – since they are unhealthy anyway you might as well go all out!!
Crush the biscuits into really small pieces (you can do this with a wooden spoon, rolling pin (or as I prefer) your hands – the kids love this bit)
Mix in the cherries and raisins
In a separate bowl melt the chocolate
(you won’t be able to use the microwave for this because you need a constant heat for the next step)
*Make sure to check if your bowl can stand the heat (mine couldn’t and it melted a
Once completely melted, add the butter and golden syrup, stiring until completely mixed in.
*(check for sneaky butter lumps – they hide)*
Take the bowl off the heat and add to the dry mixture you made earlier – cover all of the mixture in the chocolate-y goodness
*Be careful it is still warm! – I defintely
did not burn myself*
Line a tin with greaseproof paper – and pack it all down, use the back of the spoon – you want it level and as tightly packed as you can get it
*I used an 8″ square tin*
Leave it in the fridge overnight (if you’re in dire need then anything over 3 hours SHOULD just about do it)
Flip it upside down onto a chopping board, remove the greaseproof paper and cut into the desired sizes
Now attempt to enjoy whilst everyone fights for them! get in their quickly!!
