No Bake Chocolate Squares

These are the easiest and yummiest chocolate biscuits around.  They always get a comment when we get them out the cupboard and they are our favourite family treat.  There´s no cooking involved, just a bit of melting and then setting in the fridge, a doddle even for the youngest cook.

No Bake Squares

200g Plain Biscuits (Digestives work well)
50 g Butter
2 Tbsp Honey (or syrup)

1 Tsp Cinnamon (or cocoa for double choc!)
Generous handful of dried fruits (I tend to go with just raisins, but have added a whole variety of different dried fruits and nuts)

150g Cooking chocolate

Place the biscuits in a plastic bag and crush them until they make a fine crumble mix.

Melt the butter and honey together, add the Cinnamon.
Mix the dried ingredients into the honey/butter.  Stir well.
Press down firmly into a dish.

Leave the biscuit mixture to set whilst preparing the chocolate covering.

Melt the chocolate (over simmering water or in the microwave)
Smooth over the biscuit mix and leave to cool.

Surely every Chef has the right to clean out the chocolate bowl!
