A very simple recipe that's easily adapted to whatever you have in the cupboard. I am driven crazy on a regular basis, being pestered to make these...so be warned!
- 9 1⁄2 ounces dark chocolate
- 6 ounces butter
- 4 tablespoons golden syrup
- 2 tablespoons dark rum (optional)
- 6 ounces biscuits (I use rich tea or digestive)
- 1 ounce toasted rice cereal
- 1 3⁄4 ounces chopped walnuts or 1 3⁄4 ounces pecans
- 3 1⁄2 ounces chopped glace cherries
- 1 ounce white chocolate (optional)
- Melt the dark chocolate, butter, syrup and rum in a large saucepan.
- Break up the biscuit and mix it into the chocolate mixture along with the rice cereal, nuts and cherries.
- Line a 7" square tin with parchment paper. Push the mixture into the tin and then chill for 2 hours.
- When set, drizzle with melted white chocolate--optional.
- Cut into squares and watch them disappear before your very eyes!
So wonderful! I used mostly 70% chocolate but didn't have quite enough so added some 49% to make up the difference. I did use the rum but skipped the white chocolate. Used pecans and instead of glace cherries I used sweetened dried cherries. I could have gotten a hold of digestives but instead I used some shortbread cookies I had on hand that someone had given me. Love these so so much! Thanks for sharing!
Was happy to make these, among other things because I still have a nice stash of golden syrup! I did leave out the rum & we didn't miss it one bit! Just one more nice way to serve up what a chocoholic craves ~ Thanks for sharing the recipe [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
These are different from store-bought refrigerator squares that I have had but these are very good! We didn't have rum so used bourbon which worked beautifully. My only change would be to increase the syrup or add a little sugar, although I imagine using really good quality dark chocolate would produce a less bitter taste. Thanks for a lovely recipe!
