These are so yummy. I swapped the Turkish delight for crunchie bars. Will make again.

This recipe overall creates a really nice 'treat'. However, I found that (200g Dark & 100 Milk chocolate with 3 Tbsp golden syrup) that it is wayyyyy too sweet. I think the chocolate combination works fine but in future I'll probably cut down on the amount of golden syrup used. But still - it's an amazing recipe, and it's so easy to do! Melt it, Mix it, Cool it. Done.

Great recipe. I used 200g milk chocolate, 100g 70% chocolate, replaced the rich tea with digestive biscuits, replaced the marshmallows with popcorn and used crunchies. It was delicious and so quick to make!

love this recipe!!!! I've given it to my children's teachers as xmas gifts & I shaped it into a cat (doubled the recipe & used round tins) for my son's 1st birthday, everyone comments on how yummy it is. I use lidl bellarom 45% chocolate & I find mars bars work best

Oh yes! Great recipe and can be adapted to whatever you fancy adding. Today I changed the golden syrup for maple syrup and added some chopped walnuts. As long as you keep the proportions roughly the same it works every time.

I have made this recipe so many times I've lost count! Always a huge hit with family and work colleagues. I give it as gifts for Christmas wrapped in cellophane and always use 70% good quality dark chocolate, digestive biscuits and crunchie bars, absolutely delicious!

I have no idea where I went wrong but these just didn't bind for me - it's as though it was mainly biscuits and hardly any chocolate to stick it together. I followed the recipe exactly. If anyone has some tips let me know! Maybe I should use less biscuits next time. It still tasted really nice though - just fell apart.

Such a good recipe! Delicious and easy. I find malteasers work best out of all the other options and Cadbury's milk chocolate tastes a lot better than dark chocolate when making these.

These always go down SO well with anyone I make them for. They're so quick to make aswell! Instead of all the ingredients listed above, I use: just under 100g morello cherries (quartered), and just under 100g marshmallows (cut into small pieces). The cherries add that chewy and sweet element and the marshmallow melts, creating a lovely marbled effect and they taste so moreish! It's just a shame that the ingredients don't stretch to a larger portion as I don't think you could produce this too cheaply- buying the right chocolate DOES matter. I tried it once with supermarket's own 30p per bar plain chocolate and it just didn't work.

Is says line the tray with tin foil. Is this correct? Wouldn’t it stuck to the tin foil? Thank you

Hi, Lining the tin will be fine, the foil should peel off easily. You can use baking parchment or a reusable liner if you prefer. Lulu

What's best to use, digestive biscuits or rich tea?
