Made this the other night! Fabulous, very rich though! Made mine with Crunchie and I didnt melt the marshmallows. Fabulous for a party or a gift.

Really enjoyed making this as i am an amateur baker and it was sooo easy to make. I melted some white chocolate and drizzled it onto the cake- looked great!

Great simple recipe and so versatile. I only added one tablespoon of golden syrup instead of 3 so it wasn't too sweet overall and it was perfect! I added mini marshmallows, chopped up Snickers, Maltesers, broken up biscuit and raisins. I cut into fairly small chunks as quite rich. Can't wait to make again and maybe add Crunchie and cherries for a change :)

Dangerously Addictive!

Have tried this with various proportions of milk and dark chocolate, but cannot avoid it seizing with all milk chocolate (my daughter's favourite). Any tips please?

Love this recipe! Make it whenever my baby brothers come to stay with me, our favourite ingredients are maltesers and curly wurly in place of the turkish delight. Have also made it to take to work a few times - kids and the adults love it alike!

Divine!!! Used 70% chilli chocolate bar and orange chocolate bar from Aldi, didnt use Turkish Delight so added one crunchie and 2 milky ways instead. Very rich, very gorgeous - adults and kids alike devoured it! Had to make a second batch the following day due to demand

I made this yesterday to use up various pieces of chocolate (all milk)
That the children hadn't eaten. It was very good not to sweet. I used Crunchie Bars instead of Turkish Delight. Only eat in small pieces and not before going to bed! Yummy!

I made this with half dark chocolate and half milk - would have been too bitter otherwise. I also put in digestive biscuits, rice crispies, mini marshmallows, maltesers and milky way. It was totally delish and I have been craving it ever since!!
