I am reaching the point with my chocoholic repertoire where I need further inspiration…( I am a bit of a creature of habit) however, the response to my recipes has been so enormous I feel obliged to keep sharing… chatting to my mother on the phone last night she reminded me of a childhood favourite of mine…not very sophisticated but totally delicious and incredibly quick and easy to make… so here is Great Aunt Nancy’s Chocolate Biscuit Cake…I am looking forward to trying this again this weekend



500 grms Digestive Biscuits (Rich Tea work well also)

225 grms Butter

5 tblsp of Golden Syrup

50 grms Cocoa powder

Assorted raisins and dried fruit to your taste… I love some chopped walnuts too

150 grms Cooking Chocolate – I like 70% but you can go sweeter if you prefer…



Put digestives in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin – I like to leave some chunks

Melt the butter, syrup and cocoa

Stir in the crushed biscuits and dried fruit and nuts

Press the mixture into a baking tray and leave to chill

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over hot water

Spread the molten chocolate over the biscuit cake

Chill and chop into 5cm squares
