It’s been such a busy busy few weeks that I have failed to post a blog entry for quite some time. Here’s a quick recipe to keep us going…
This weekend (as well as celebrating the Queen’s 90th at a local street party, and a good friend’s 50th birthday and a fab BBQ) I hosted a small party to celebrate one of my best school friend’s birthdays.
It was all very last minute and impromptu- with several old school mates and their kids coming over for Friday night fizz and fun – and in terms of food the plan was just to get a takeaway, however I did think I should provide some birthday desert – enter the ten-minute tiffin.
It’s a delicious, rich chocolate treat that really does take only 10 minutes to prepare and makes a great alternative to my Birthday Brownies.
110 g butter
2 tablespoons caster sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
4 teaspoons cocoa powder
225g Rich Tea biscuits
100g milk chocolate
125g dark chocolate
- Melt the butter, golden syrup, caster sugar and cocoa powder in a saucepan over a low heat – stirring gently throughout.
- While you are doing this smash up the Rich Tea biscuits.
- Once the mixture is melted and properly combined add the smashed biscuits and stir in properly.
- Melt the chocolate together in a bain-marie (Pyrex bowl over boiling water).
- But the biscuit mixture into a lined baking tray (around the size of a loaf tin) and press down.
- Pour the melted chocolate over the top.
- Place in fridge for around an hour.
- Cut into squares and serve.
