Turn all those stray chocolates into one big guest-pleasing after dinner choc treat
Makes 25 small cake squares
200g dark chocolate
200g milk chocolate
2 tbsp golden syrup
10 digestive biscuits
30g macadamia nuts
30g dried cranberries
A couple of handfuls of Christmas chocolates
1. Line a small metal tray with cling film. In a bowl set over a pot of boiling water, so that the base sits just above the water, melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup.
2. Put the digestive biscuits into a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin to break them up a little, then put them into the chocolate, along with the academia nuts and dried cranberries.
3. When all is nicely combined, tip it onto the tray and spread it out, then push the chocolates into the surface - you want to work quickly so that the molten chocolate is still hot enough to melt them just slightly.
4. Leave to set for a couple of hours in the fridge, slice into small squares and serve.
