Here is a fun, quick recipe that is easy for kids to make. You can keep it plain or add in all sorts of goodies. It’s a fabulous sort of recipe that every mother should have up her sleeve… and it doesn’t require baking! Warming, but no baking! Here is what you are aiming for:
Also it’s one of those recipes where less is more. The more you make the more you eat – really don’t make a whole lot. It may well be the death of you. Easy to remember, just 4 ingredients – all 100g. Except the syrup and 1 tablespoon of that will do.
Let’s Meet The Players:
- 100 g butter
- 100 g good quality chocolate
- 100 g marie biscuits (you may call them tea biscuits on the far side of the world)
- 1 tablespoon syrup.
These are fine to have plain. If you want to add in then I just keep adding 100g of everything! Not too much to mention…
I used glace cherries and mini-marshmallows but you can add dried fruit, nuts and raisins – all to very good effect!
Let’s play the game:
Step 1: Start with the biscuits… Pop them in a tea towel and bash them like crazy until you have biscuit crumbs.
Step 2: Organize your add-ins, chop them up a bit smaller and so on…
Step 3: Pop your chocolate, butter and syrup together into a pot.
Step 4: Gently warm the ingredients in the pot. The aim is to slowly melt them to together not to boil or even slightly bubble them.
Step 5: Take your pot off the hotplate and add in your bashed up biscuits. Mix them in and coat them thoroughly.
Step 6: If you are adding in extras then now is the time.
We added in chopped-cherries:
And baby marshmallows:
Step 7: Generously grease a baking pan… I used a bread pan. And pour your mixture into it. Spread it out and leave it in the fridge for a couple of hours to set.
Hopefully when you get back to check on it it won’t half be gone – AHEM! Cut it into chunks and only if you are very generous hearted offer it to anyone else!
