A sure-fire winner with everyone (especially me on My Birthday… yes, it’s my birthday today!)!
- 1/2 pat butter (butter/margarine mixture)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 dessert-spoon drinking chocolate powder
Meltall the above ingredients down in a large saucepan, on the lowest heat possible. SUGGESTION: Towards the end of melting time, try adding Maltesers!
- about 3/4 large packet of digestive biscuits
Bash them up, and stir in until liquid is no longer sticking to the sides.
Butter a medium sized baking/roasting tray (any shape), and throw the mixture in. Flatten with the back of a spoon.
- A 200g bar of FAIR TRADE milk chocolate (or more if you wish).
Allow the chocolate to set (it can be placed in the freezer if you wish it to take less time!)
The cake is then ready to eat: Beware, it’s very rich!
This recipe is great for any occasion, it is quick to thrown together, and is not too expensive! You can experiment with other than digestives. I’ve tried Rich Tea biscuits, and my mother likes muesli. We have also tried the added ingredient of Maltesers – that works pretty well. Tell me your ideas.
e=mc2: Elation = Munching x Chocolate 2 !!!!!
