    Whitby Tart's Note:

    This is a very very rich chocolate bar, Unfortunately once you have tasted this slice you can not leave it alone, It was given to me about 15 years ago by a friend. The reason for the name if the slice is because a mother in laws tongue is usually bitter sweet.

      WOW! This was really easy & great tasting. I must admit I did not use dark chocolate, I used Milk Chocolate. The family LOVED it, maybe a little too much! I will definately make these again. Thank you.

      For once I was able to purchase the two ingredients that have usually been hard to find before ~ golden syrup & digestive biscuits ~ although I realize I could have come up with suitable substitutes! And, when finished with the recipe, WHAT A WONDERFUL CHOCOHOLIC FIX! Definitely will be keeping this recipe on hand from now on! Thanks so much!

      Oh my goodness! These bars are incredibly dangerous - - because I want to eat them all!! LOL I found golden syrup and digestive biscuits in the British imports section of our grocery so was able to follow this recipe to the letter (except that I also used a little extra chocolate on the top - about 9.5 oz total). I used Ghirardelli 60% dark chocolate and a mixture of Lindt & Dove milk chocolate for the top. Thank you soooo much for the recipe Whitby Tart!
