Method

  1. Grease and line an 18cm square brownie tin with baking paper.

  2. Place 200g digestive biscuits in a freezer bag and bash with a rolling pin or just the side of your fist until they're broken into a mixture of everything between dust and 50p-sized lumps. Set aside.

  3. In a large saucepan melt 135g butter or margarine, 200g dark chocolate and 2-3 tbsp golden syrup over a gentle heat stirring constantly until there are no or almost no more lumps of chocolate visible, then remove from the heat. Leave to cool.

  4. Take the biscuits, 100g mini marshmallows and up to 100g of additional ingredients (dried fruit, nuts, popcorn, honeycomb), if you like, and stir into the chocolate mixture until everything is completely covered.

  5. Tip the mixture into the lined baking tin, and spread it out to the corners. Chill for at least 2 hrs then dust with icing sugar and cut into 12 fingers.

Aftee two attempts, I still haven't got this recipe to work. After 5 hours in the fridge, it was still a very sticky mixture and therefore difficult to cut, and I only added 2 tbsp of golden syrup. A layer of solidified fat also accumulated on top, which makes me think the amount given is too much. The taste is fair, but the appearance is off-putting. I'll try Nigella's recipe next, as the ingredient quantities are different.

I'm not sure what your doing wrong. I have just found this recipe, made a batch and they worked first time. Try the 50%milk/dark chocolate and see if that helps. Remember to turn off the heat.

Easy peasy and delicious! I added currants (didn't have raisins!) and a couple of meringue nests....very moorish :-)

Try making without the marshmallow then when spread on tray press marshmallows, fudge or tablet(in small cubes) and maltesers on top. For Easter add mini eggs.

Great recipe, easy to make and delicious, brought it to a charity bake sale in work, and they were sold in minutes!

By way of accident and lack of planning I made a few changes. 100g dark chocolate, 100g milk chocolate with hazelnuts. I used butterscotch sauce instead of golden syrup but 2spoons instead of three. Threw in a few cherries and some maltesers too. Was short for time and put it in the freezer for an hour. Delicious

good. I put a pinch of parika in for some spice and pecan nuts for extra texture

I replaced 50g of digestives with 50g of Amaratti biscuits, simply because I am addicted to them, and it worked really well. Don't think I'll be sharing much of this, they'll have to fight me for it!
