Ingredients

  • 300g ginger nut biscuit , roughly crushed
  • 140g crystallised stem ginger , finely chopped
  • 300g plain chocolate
  • 100g butter , diced
  • 100g golden syrup

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKE AHEAD

These squares will last in the fridge in an airtight container for a week, or freeze for up to a month. Keep them chilled until you pack them up to give away, so that they don’t melt while you’re transporting them.
