4oz Butter or margarine
1 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Drinking chocolate
1 tbsp Golden syrup
2 tbsp Raisins
8oz Rich Tea or other plain biscuits
5oz Bournville or good quality milk chocolate

15 - 24 pieces

1. Melt the butter and sugar with the syrup in a large pan.

2. Add the raisins and drinking chocolate and bring to the boil.

3. Allow to bubble gently for 2-3 minutes to thicken a little.

4. Meanwhile crush the biscuits with a rolling pin (or you can grind them in a food processor to give crumbs, depending on whether you want a smooth or chunky effect). Don't leave the biscuit pieces too large or the finished slab will tend to break up when cut.

5. Mix the crumbs well into the melted mixture, coating thoroughly.

6. Press into a lined 7" x 11" shallow Swiss Roll tin and level out, pushing the mixture down well.

7. Melt the chocolate carefully (you can do this easily in a microwave) and spread over the top.

8. Leave to set in a cool place then cut into 15 or 24 pieces with a sharp knife.
