Chocolate Biscuit Cake

This 'cake' doesn't require any baking and is full of chocolate goodness.

Ingredients:

  • 200g unsalted butter, cut into squares
  • 300g dark chocolate, broken into squares
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 300g rich tea biscuits
  • 75g hazelnuts, roughly chopped into chunks
  • 75g raisins

Method:

  1. Put the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a bowl and place over a saucepan with some water in it.
  2. Bring the water in the pan to a simmer and use it to slowly melt the chocolate and butter together. Don't stir the chocolate mixture until it looks like it's mostly melted.
  3. Carefully and slowly stir the chocolate mixture until it's got the same consistency.
  4. Remove from the heat and put to one side.
  5. Meanwhile, place the rich tea biscuits in a large freezer/plastic bag. Place this bag inside another bag so that it doesn't matter if it breaks.
  6. Use a rolling pin to break the biscuits up into small chunks.
  7. Combine the biscuits with the chocolate mixture and add the nuts and raisins.
  8. Mix well.
  9. While the chocolate is still molten, pour it into a roasting tin or baking tray with high sides.
  10. Press down with a spoon.
  11. Chill in the fridge for a couple of hours until it's all set.
  12. Cut into slices with a sharp knife and place into an airtight container.
  13. Once this has set there is no need to keep it in the fridge.
Makes 16 squares of biscuit cake.
