DIRECTIONS

  • Break the milk chocolate into pieces and place in a heatproof bowl with the butter. Rest the bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir frequently until melted.
  • Meanwhile, dampen a 450g/1lb loaf tin (pan) and line the base and sides with clear film (plastic wrap). don't worry about smoothing out the creases in the film.
  • When the chocolate has melted, remove it from the heat and leave for 5 minutes until cooled.
  • Break the biscuits into very small pieces, then stir into the melted chocolate with the almonds. Add the chopped chocolate to the bowl, and fold in quickly and lightly.
  • Turn the mixture into the tin and pack down with a fork. Tap the base of the tin gently on the work surface. Chill for 2 hours until set.
  • To serve, turn the chocolate loaf on to a board and peel away the clear film. Dust lightly with the icing sugar and slice thinly.
