Ingredients, all basics/value except *
300g of Dark chocolate
2 packets of rich tea biscuits
1 tin of condensed milk*
200g of unsalted butter
250g of dried mixed fruit
To start, you need to start melting the chocolate as this takes the longest: get a small Pyrex bowl, break up the dark chocolate, put the chocolate in the bowl, and place on the saucepan with boiling water.
Break up both packets of rich tea biscuits in a large bowl, but don’t crush into a ‘crumble’; large pieces are necessary for the ‘rocky’ look.
Begin melting the butter in a large sauce pan on a low flame and once that’s melted add the entire tin of condensed milk. Stir until the butter and condensed milk are consistent- you shouldn’t be able to distinguish between the two fluids at all.
Take the mixture of condensed milk and butter off the heat, add the crushed biscuit and stir until the biscuit looks entirely coated. Stir in the mixed fruit, and add about a half (or two thirds) of the melted chocolate and stir once again.
Place the mixture in a medium dish, spread out evenly. Now pour the remaining chocolate on the surface of mixture for a nice chocolate top.
Place the dish in the fridge and wait 5-6 hours for everything to set. Once set, cut into small (or large) pieces and enjoy.
1. Add some orange zest to the melted chocolate while still on the heat for a homemade orange chocolate taste.
2. Try digestive biscuits instead of rich tea for a softer inner.
3. Add whatever takes your biscuit!
