Ingredients

    Golden syrup is a clear, sparkling, golden-amber coloured, sweet

Method

  1. Line a 20 x 30cm tin with baking parchment. Mix the biscuits with most of the ginger, then set aside. Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally, until smooth and glossy. Pour this over the biscuit and ginger mixture and mix together well.

  2. Tip the mixture into the prepared tin and sprinkle over the reserved ginger, then flatten the top lightly – it doesn’t need to be completely smooth. Chill for at least 2 hrs, or overnight, before cutting into small squares.

I ve made these a few times now. The darker the chocolate the better! I use high cocoa content chocolate and it makes all the difference. Otherwise they 're much too sweet. I suppose it depends on your taste.I don't like milk chocolate and make these as the ginger goes so well with dark chocolate and it's so hard to find dark chocolate goods that aren't very pricey.

Just delicious. I don't think you need the best chocolate - I used Lidl's basic and it was wonderful with the ginger nuts and crystallised ginger.

I made this for Xmas presents, a bit sweet, make sure you use the best chocolate, can't get away with the cheap stuff for this one.

These are absolutely delicious! I made them exactly as the recipe directed, and took them to a party where they were gobbled up. Shall definitely make these again as they're so easy to make.

As easy and fun to make as a chocolate crispy cake, but much more grown-up! Lovely smooth chocolate/butter/syrup mixture is a great contrast to the crunchy biscuit and chewy ginger (which also gives a nice bit of heat). Will definitely make again, would make a nice gift too.

Made these without the stem ginger as thought they were gingery enough with all the ginger nuts! Used marshmallows instead with white choc chunks and they went down a treat! Do take along time to set though, so make day before is great! Very yummy! Will try in cake cases next time like you do chocolate crispy cakes! These are great for kids and adults alike!

I substituted the Plain chocolate for Dark (70%) choc as I love dark choc. It was totally worth doing. These are very easy to make and taste lush. Have frozen some for Christmas hampers but I couldn't resist a couple of squares this morning!!
