A shorter post but just had to put these recipes up. Not sure whether some of these ingredients or similar will be available in the US. For instance perhaps Leslie or Nancy could tell me if maltesers are on sale over there? Maltesers are small balls of honeycombe coated with chocolate, very light to eat but most more-ish -yummm!
The first recipe came from the school where one of our twin daughters works it was then modified by the other twin daughter as I couldn’t get the original recipe to set very well. So here it is:
500 grams (approx 18 ozs) crushed Digestive or Rich Tea biscuits
150 grams (approx 5.5 ozs) hard/block margarine or butter
4 tablespoons golden syrup
300 grams (approx 10.5 ozs) chocolate – mix of dark and milk
Also can be added chopped nuts, cherries or sultanas
Melt chocolate, margarine and syrup together over a low heat until margarine has melted. Put crushed biscuits and raisins into a large bowl and pour melted mixture into the bowl. Stir well and then press into a well greased swiss roll tin and chill.
Melted chocolate can be spread over the top before chilling. Once set cut into bars and store in a plastic container in a cool place.
85 grams (3 ozs) butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
170 grams (6ozs) crushed digestive biscuits
175 grams (7 ozs) maltesers -half crushed/half left whole
Melt butter and golden syrup gently in a pan.
Put cocoa powder, crushed biscuits and crushed maltesers into a bowl and add melted syrup and butter, combine well.
Allow to cool slightly and stir in whole maltesers.
Line a cake tin with cling film and pour in mixture. Press down carefully. Chill until set and cut into small wedges.
A little goes a long way!
The chocolate tiffin makes a nice gift when put into a lined container.
The beauty of these recipes is that there is no baking and they make ideal treats to go with a mug of tea or coffee.
Happy tasting y’all
