The weather has been so nice of late, I have been catching up on washing and getting boat jobs done, before we leave to go off cruising.
Having done a load of washing this morning, it was time to make some Chocolate Tiffin. It has been an age since I made any, but who can refuse Chocolate?
200g milk chocolate (I use Cadbury Milk Chocolate)
100g unsalted butter
2 tbsp golden syrup
125g digestive biscuits
135g bag of Maltesers
For the topping
200g milk chocolate
25g unsalted butter
1 tsp golden syrup.
1.Line a 20cm square baking tin with baking parchment. Place the 200g of chocolate, butter and syrup in a heat-proof bowl and melt over a pan of barely simmering water or in the microwave. Once almost melted, remove from the heat and gently stir until any tiny bits chocolate have melted. Allow to cool a little.
2.Place the biscuits and 35g of the Maltesers in a freezer bag, seal and crush with a rolling pin. You want mainly crumbs but a few small chunks of biscuit is fine.
3.Top the crushed mixture and whole Maltesers (save 1 or 2 for yourself) to the melted chocolate and stir until everything is coated. Press into the prepared tin and make the topping.
4.For the topping, melt the chocolate, butter and syrup as before and spread over the biscuit base.
5.Cover the tin with cling film or foil and refrigerate for 1-2 hours before cutting into squares.
Yes I licked out the bowl, it would have been naughty not too.
This is going to last us a while, because both of us are keeping our weight down.
