A no bake slice and a massive chocolate hit all in one scrumptious little square.
225g/2 sticks butter
3 tbsp golden syrup
50g/½ cup cocoa powder, sieved
½ cup raisins
300g digestive biscuits/ graham crackers, crushed (uneven size pieces make for a more interesting tiffin slice)
400g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
Melt the butter in a pan along with the golden syrup and cocoa powder, until amalgamated. Take of the heat and stir in the the crushed biscuits until well combined.
Pour the mixture into a cake or brownie tin, which has been greased or lined. Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over simmering water. Make sure the base of the bowl doesn't touch the water. Once the chocolate has melted, pour it over the biscuit mix and smooth over.
Leave the mixture in the fridge to set, before cutting into squares with a sharp knife.
These go down a treat with children and adults alike. They are so easy, they would make a good choice for Hallowe'en. The dark chocolate can be substitued with milk chocolate, if you prefer, but I love them with dark chocolate.
