These foodie treats are easy to make – the perfect solution for quick yet special presents for family and friends, especially over the Christmas season.
- 300 g ginger nut biscuits, roughly crushed
- 140 g crystallised stem ginger, finely chopped
- 300 g plain chocolate
- 100 g butter, diced
- 100 g golden syrup
- Line a 20 × 30cm tin with baking parchment. Mix the biscuits with most of the ginger, then set aside. Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally, until smooth and glossy. Pour this over the biscuit and ginger mixture and mix together well.
- Tip the mixture into the prepared tin and sprinkle over the reserved ginger, then flatten the top lightly – it doesn’t need to be completely smooth. Chill for at least 2 hrs, or overnight, before cutting into small squares.
These squares will last in the fridge in an airtight container for a week, or freeze for up to a month. Keep them chilled until you pack them up to give away, so that they don’t melt while you’re transporting them.
