If you’re going to make something so easy that it doesn’t even really count as baking, you might as well make it perfect.
I made this batch to serve at a 40th wedding anniversary, and I think it’s my best one yet.
This time I used:
100g Dairy Milk whole nut
2 tsp golden syrup
150g chopped marshmallows (I used scissors but small ones work too)
Pack of hobnobs
Almost a box of maltesers
100g chopped wonka’s millionaire shortbread (had it in, use choc chips/other chopped choc or omit)
75g mixed dried fruit
Melt chocolate, butter and syrup in a saucepan on low til runny and smooth. Separately, crush the biscuits—I do this by whacking the full packet on the sides of a large bowl until it bursts, then jabbing at the crumbs with a rolling pin—add all the other dry ingredients, mix, and cover with the cooled chocolate. Press into a greased and lined rectangular tin. I think this made about 24 large ones, which Mum then halved again because my portion sizes are greedy.If you want to make it look a bit more special you can dust with icing sugar, but I don’t bother, I think there’s already enough sugar in these mini heart attacks.
This recipe is just a combination of everything I had in, so be creative—add different nuts, fruit, cereal maybe? Granola would probably work. Most of all, enjoy.
