Wicked chocolate biscuit cake

I mentioned the chance of cake and it seemed rude not to have something nice for them indoors but I didn't feel like baking (I'm not ill, just feeling like a change!) so I did wicked chocolate biscuit cake instead. It's devilishly bad for you but dead easy to make!

I normally add a couple of bags of maltesers and a bag of marshmallows but we had a bag of extra-mini-mini-eggs kicking about the pantry so I put them in instead.

If you fancy having a go at these then here's what you need to do:

Get a big bar of chocolate,
Half a block of butter
50g sugar
Large packet of digestives
One tin of condensed milk

Grease a baking tin (either an 8" round or a 6"x12" approx tin) and put to one side.
Throw the digestives into a big bowl and bash them about so you have a mixture of different sized bits. Add your extras now - mini eggs/maltesers/smarties/marshmallows/glace cherries... and mix together.

Put the chocolate, sugar, butter and condensed milk in a saucepan and melt together slowly over a low heat.

Leave this to cool for a few minutes.

Pour over your dry ingrediants and mix together. It will probably look as though there isn't enough chocolate goo to cover it all, but there is - trust me!
Once it's all mixed up, put into your tin, spread out evenly and pop it in the fridge for a couple of hours.

After that time (if you can leave it that long) take it out of the fridge. Cut it into little squares about an inch square or into little bars. Get a little bowl of icing sugar and as you take the bars/blocks out of the tin roll them in the icing sugar. Or cut into wedges and just dust the top!

This stuff (given the chance) will last in the fridge for a couple of weeks. Its great for school fetes! You can wrap in food safe cellophane bags (try ebay or lakeland) and tie with a bit of ribbon. Kids might enjoy making tags for them!
