Nom, Nom, Nom

I don’t know about you but chocolate plays a key role in my life. Too often I’ll be craving a chocolatey fix, only to find there’s no chocolate in the cupboard. It’s situations like these that this recipe is truly a lifesaver.

This recipe can basically be adjusted to include whatever you happen to have in your cupboards at home; both yummy and practical!

To begin you will need:

  •  400g butter 
  • 200ml golden syrup 
  • 100g cocoa powder
  • 800g biscuits(broken into small pieces)
  • 200g dried fruit(I used raisins)
It doesn’t matter what type of tray you use, as long as the mixture fits into it. If not, use two trays. Simples!

To start off with you need to collect your butter, golden syrup and cocoa powder. Now I would suggest using this recipe even if you do happen to have a bar of chocolate. Using the cocoa powder will give you that chocolatey hit that is oh so needed and if that’s not satisfying enough( and i don't blame you!) you can always eat the bar of chocolate afterwards!

Now, if you want to be professional, place your syrup, butter and cocoa powder into a large saucepan over a medium hea,t until it is melted and smooth, stirring occasionally. Or. If your lazy like me, put the ingredients into a bowl and melt in the microwave til you get something that appears somewhat similar to below.( I put mine in the microwave for 1 minute, stirring after 30 seconds)

Then, as if it could be any easier, mix the biscuits and fruit into the chocolate mixture.

Once mixed through, pour into a greased tray and refrigerate for as long as you can wait. Oh, and enjoy!:)
