    200g butter
    2tbsp golden syrup
    200g dark chocolate chopped (50%60% cocoa solids)
    200g digestive biscuits crushed
    50g walnuts chopped
    50g glacŽ cherries halved
    50g desiccated coconut
    50g raisins

    Melt the butter syrup and chocolate together in a saucepan (or in a microwave on medium setting).
    Stir in the next five ingredients and combine well.
    Pour the mixture into a lightly buttered 24cm round cake tin.
    Once cold place in the refrigerator overnight or for at least 4 hours.
    To serve cut into thin wedges and serve with some pounog cream or ice cream.

    You can use toasted hazelnuts or unsalted pistachios instead of the walnuts and dried apricots pear or mango instead of the cherries. You can also make it even richer by topping with a thin layer of melted chocolate. Remember to serve in thin slices unless you belong to the Death by Chocolate brigade.

    Made this today and it is the sex, i think my scales are off because im sure i used to much butter even though the scales said it was right and it ended up a bit greesy.

    As it says you only need a small slice as it can get sickly quite quickly
