My sister absolutely adores these and they are incredibly simple to make! This recipe will make you around 24 delicious squares.
-125g soft butter
-300g dark chocolate (preferably 70% cocoa solids)
-3 tablespoons golden syrup
-1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
-200g biscuits (rich tea, digestive, amaretti, whatever you fancy!)
-100g mini marshmallows
-2 teaspoons icing sugar for dusting
-Edible glitter for dusting
-Snowflake (or other!) sprinkles
-Firstly, melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a heavy based saucepan. When the mixture is melted, add your cinnamon and stir then scoop out about 125ml of this melted mixture and put to one side.
-Put the biscuits into a large sandwich bag and then bash them with a rolling pin.
-Fold the biscuit pieces and crumbs into the melted chocolate mixture in the saucepan and then pour in your marshmallows.
-Tip the mixture into a tin which had been lined with greaseproof paper. Flatten the mixture as much as you can and then pour the remaining 125g of mixture over the mixture in the tray and smooth over the top.
-Put the mixture in the fridge for at least two hours.
-When the mixture is completely set, take it out of the tray and cut the mixture into around 24 squares.
-Sprinkle the icing sugar, edible glitter and snowflake sprinkles over the cake bars and viola! They are ready to be devoured!
They are brilliant to put into Christmas themed cellophane bags to give away as presents, or for stocking and Christmas Eve box gifts!
Happy scoffing peeps! xx
