  • 8oz digestive biscuits
  • 4oz margarine (in the original) - butter I'd say in the butter-is-better version
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons drinking chocolate
  • 4oz sultanas
  • 1 egg (if you dare - and at your own risk)
  • a few drops of vanilla essence
  • 12 squares cooking chocolate to top


  1. Melt the marg/butter, sugar & chocolate in pan

  2. Crumble biscuits in baking bowl
  3. Add melted mixture and a well beaten egg (or alternatively, honey and/or golden syrup - enough just to bind) 
  4. Add sultanas & vanilla essence 
  5. Press into flat baking tin

  6. Melt cooking chocolate over a pan of boiling water (or however you like to melt chocolate)
  7. Spread evenly over the pressed stuff
  8. Leave to set and cut into squares
  9. Try not to eat too many squares at the same time
(If using the egg, check dietary requirements / allergies / sensitivities of target consumers and get everyone to sign disclaimers!)
