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

Method

  1. Butter and line a 20cm square tin with non-stick baking parchment. In a large bowl, combine the biscuits and nuts, halving any larger nuts. Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth and glossy, then pour this over the biscuit and nut mixture.

  2. Tip the mixture into the tin, then flatten lightly – it doesn’t need to be completely smooth. Chill for at least 2 hrs or overnight before cutting into squares.

I tried these first to see what they were like, and like Four Candles above I used half milk and half dark chocolate. I used digestive biscuits, glace cherries, a few nuts and some fruit, and my family loved them. I shall definately be making them again.

It does sound nice but like a few other commenters I would like to know how far in advance I should make these as there is no mention of how long they keep for. It also doesn't say whether they are suitable for freezing. Elephantum, you mentioned you put some in the freezer? How did they fare?

Last year I made this on Christmas Eve instead of the usual Christmas cake, but I shaped it into a Yule Log. I just took the mixture out of the fridge after about 15-30 minutes and carefully used the baking parchment to help meroll the mixture into a log shape and hey presto, a festive, alternative and yummy yule log! I also substituted some of the nuts/fruit for marshmallows!

Looks great and tastes wonderful. They didn't last very long at all with a few chocolate lovers in the house. great idea for christmas gifts to family members who already have everything else.

I made these and they were delicious. I changed the golden syrup for honey and used half milk chocolate and half Nutela to make up the chocolate required. They were absolutely gorgeous! I have put half into the freezer, in small batches, so that I can pull them out as a regular treat! I will definitely make them again, thanks Good Food!

quite a few have said its very sweet, has anyone tried making them without the golden syrup? wouldn't the chocolate be enough to bind everything?

I used less syrup than the recipe said (just under 100g, rather than 140g), and a mixture of dark and milk chocolate, and it wasn't too sweet. I think it could work with even only half the amount of syrup in the recipe. Perhaps maple syrup would work instead, as it's not so sweet.

Whole family loved these... used 2 thirds milk choc and 1 third dark. Used shortcake and oaty biscuits, sultanas, cherries, mixed nuts and sunflower seeds. Admittedly eating 2 pieces straight off may result in nausea... but they are good!

Made a few times now, yummy with marshmallows added... I use mini marshmallows, glace cherries, raisins and a few broken up pecans as my nuts/dried fruit bit of the recipe.
