- 60g raisins
- STEP 1Line a tin with cling film leaving enough round the edges so that you can easily take the mixture out of the tin later.

- STEP 3Chop hazelnuts in pieces of different sizes.
- STEP 4Melt chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a sauce pan
- STEP 5Stir the biscuits, hazelnuts and raisins in the chocolate mixture and blend well.

- STEP 7Turn out the cake by holding the cling film that is draping over the edges and peel of the cling film from the cake and cut the cake into squares and serve with a cup of coffee or tea!
