I made these for a work Christmas fuddle. My oven had broken and I needed something which didn't require cooking! When I made these, I thought that they had gone wrong - there didn't seem to be enough chocolate covering and they didn't look tasty. Anyway, I took them to work and they were one of the first things to vanish (and I made 2 batches!!) - everybody loved them! I made a turkish delight version with 2/3 dark choc and 1/3 milk choc (my fav) and a crunchie version with 2/3 milk choc and 1/3 dark. I only used 1 tbsp syrup in each batch.

You really need to use a mixture of milk and dark this recipe. I used 100g dark (72.5%) and 240g milk. I used 3 tablespoons of condensed milk instead of the syrup and only half the butter. For the filling I used shortbread, pistachios and marshmallows. I also set the mixture in a yorkshire pudding tray to make the individual portions. I'm asked to make these all the time and they never last a full day! Yum!

Absolutely brilliant, but felt like I was putting on weight just looking at it! I added 2 thirds dark chocolate and 1 third milk so it wasn't quite so bitter. I also put it some walnuts to give it a bit more crunch.

I used digestive biscuits, a mixture of plain and milk chocolate and added some glace cherries. A huge hit. Not cheap, particularly when making double quantities but quick, easy and delicious. Will certainly make again

Great for a bonfire night treat, made it with marshmallows and malteasers. I use tesco value dark choc, just as good and a third of the price.

Great with maltesers and marshmallows.

A big hit with family and friends. I halved the amount of syrup, used maltesers instead of turkish delight and added maraschino cherries. Yum...only trouble is it disappears off the plate so quickly!

Made a huge triple batch,using a couple of the variations suggested by previous testers, for a bunch of friends - no sooner had I turned my back and they had demolished the lot. So I can't say for sure how nice they were...
