  • 4 tablespoons golden syrup or maple syrup
  • 175 g butter or dairy free spread
  • 150 g dark chocolate* broken into pieces
  • 225 g digestive biscuits* broken into pieces
  • 100 g rich tea biscuits* broken into pieces
  • 100 g walnuts broken into pieces
  • 90 g sultanas
  • 90 g candied orange peel
  • 100-200 g dark chocolate* melted, optional, for topping


  • Lightly grease a 30 x 23cm tin.
  • Melt the syrup, butter and chocolate together (I do this in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of hot water). 
  • Remove from the heat, allow to cool slightly then add the crushed biscuits, walnuts and dried fruit and mix well. You want the chocolate mixture to be coating everything else.
  • Place in the roasting tin and press down firmly to level the surface and help it set. You could use a spatula to do this or place a sheet of baking paper on the top and press down with the palms of your hands.
  • If using drizzle melted chocolate over the top. 
  • Allow to cool and then chill in the fridge overnight until set.
  • Cut into squares to serve and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
