Oh that is so so sweet, but delicious. It didn't last long. I may have used a bit too much syrup or crushed the digestives too much as it went a bit solid also my daughter ate most of the maltesers before they went in. But definately will make again for special treats. Adding other things into sounds good too.

This was fun to make with my 3yr old son. I used ginger biscuits, loads of mixed-nuts and orange flavoured dark chocolate (70%), and even then it was too sweet for me. Even my generally sweet-toothed husband and son admitted that the sweetness made their "teeth ache" :-) But otherwise a good recipe to try with kids and it comes out really well.

These are really really good, but only one slice at a time because it's really sickening!

These were good! This is something else I made for my charity cake sale at work and they were the first to go. Had lot's of compliments. They were incredibly easy too. I will make them again but try different types of chocolate to see what works. It can work out expensive but I found using supermarkets own brand stuff extremely cheap and tasted just as good.

Fabulous. I have a sweet tooth and they were a little sweet for me, so i might try using dark or a mix of dark/milk chcoclate next time.

I too struggled melting the whire chocolate and there didn't seem enough - so i spread it leaving some gaps. It look messy but once it was divided into slices they looked as if it was supposed to be like that.

Really very good! I used those digestive biscuits with caramel inside and milk chocolate on the top and cut each biscuit into 16 pieces which added a nice bit of caramel flavour. I cut the finished tray into bite sized pieces and found that they really were best served straight from the fridge. Delicious!

I reduced the amount of butter and increased the chocolate. I added mixed dried berries I had in cupboard. Absolutely lovely but by the time I bought all the ingredients it worked out very expensive. Not for every day.

They are VERY sweet but seem to be popular in my office. I divided them into 24 bars and worked out they are 183 calories with 11g of fat each.

Easy to make, the only issue was with melting the white chocolate but I managed to rescue that.

These are amazing, but we can't make them to often - they're too good!

My teenage daughter and her boyfriend loved doing this recipe. It all went exactly according to plan. They used some cornflakes in substitute for some of the digestives. We all thought the syrup made it especially tasty. Lovely!

I have tried something similar with maltesers and mini marshmallows...crunchy and chewy!

Mikeandandy - this is golden syrup. I've also made this using drinking chocolate in the base instead of chocolate. No idea how much - just kind of chucked until it seemed like the right consistency.

Now crunchie bars.... that sounds good! Will have to try that. But think I'll top it with milk chocolate - can't quite get my head round the idea of crunchie bars with white chocolate.

Is this a Nigella recipe? I have made this before from her web site

I noticed that there was not a fat content listed for the completed recipe. I would imagine it would be off the scale!
