This recipe is great for using up any leftovers from Christmas or Easter such as plain chocolates, Christmas tree chocolates, biscuits such as biscotti, amaretti, or lebkuchen.
- Put all these in a bowl or pan and microwave or heat on low for a couple of minutes to melt:
- 100 g butter/hard margarine (not low-fat, as it won't set)
- 25 g soft brown sugar
- 3 tbsp cocoa
- 4 tbsp golden syrup
- Then add:
- 225 g crushed digestive biscuits
- 150 g raisins (or other dried fruit)
- Mix well.

Press into a 20cm square greased tin.
Melt 225g milk/plain chocolate, pour on top and smooth over mixture (optional).
Mark into squares and chill in fridge for an hour or so before cutting.
Use chopped dried fruits such as apricots, glace cherries, cranberries, coconut, nuts etc instead of raisins if preferred. A mixture of a couple of these is particularly nice.
