Broken Biscuit cake




This was my favourite homemade treat that my mum used to make when I was a child and on a rainy half term holiday last week me and my son made them together for the first time. He loved breaking up the biscuits and chocolate and he especially enjoyed licking the spoons, I think it is now his favourite too!
It's not technically a cake because it's left to set in the fridge rather than baked in the oven but that's what we've always called it so that's the name I'm sticking to! It has just a few simple ingredients and it's incredibly quick and easy to make, I guarantee you'll love it!

Ingredients

4oz/120g butter
8oz/230g biscuits, broken into small pieces (chocolate or plain digestives are good to use)
1 tbspn golden syrup
1 tbspn cocoa
1 bar of chocolate (Any will do but I used 114g bar of Galaxy)

Method

- Melt the butter in a pan then add the syrup, keep stirring on a low heat until the syrup is dissolved
- Stir the cocoa into the butter/syrup mixture and mix thoroughly
- Add the broken biscuits to the mixture and mix well until all the biscuits are completely coated in the chocolatey mixture
- Pour the mixture into a loaf tin and press down well to form a flat base in the tin
- Heat the chocolate in the microwave in 30 second bursts (stirring after each) until it's all melted
- Pour the melted chocolate onto the mixture in the tin, making sure all the biscuit base is covered
- Put in the fridge to set for about an hour
- When the mixture has set and whilst still in the tin, cut into small individual pieces and serve

Tips

- This recipe has a thin layer of chocolate on the top, you can add more to make it a real chocolatey treat!
- Make sure all the biscuits are completely coated in the buttery mixture and that the biscuit mixture is pressed well down in the tin. This will make sure the mixture sticks together when cut up at the end.
