This recipe was originally from a hand-written page of my mum's recipe binder. It's good fun to make and very chocolatey! Each piece has about the same number of calories in as a Snickers bar (about 274 kcal with 400g chocolate or 238 kcal with 300g, last time I went through checking values).

Ingredients
  • 300g / 10oz crushed rich tea biscuits
  • 225g / 8oz margarine
  • 4tbls Golden Syrup
  • 4tbls cocoa powder
  • 2tbls sugar
  • 400g / 14oz chocolate (300g / 10oz for a thin layer)
Method
  1. Grease tins.
  2. Crush the rich tea biscuits.
  3. Melt the margarine, golden syrup, cocoa powder and sugar together in a large bowl.
  4. Add the rich tea biscuits to the mixture and turn into the tin. Press down firmly.
  5. Melt the chocolate and pour over biscuit mixture.
