Chocolate or cocoa/hot choc powder seems to be the big difference between recipes.

BBC good food suggests

250g/8oz digestive biscuits
150g/5oz milk chocolate
150g/5oz dark chocolate
100g/3½oz unsalted butter
150g/5oz golden syrup
100g/3½oz dried apricots, chopped
75g/2½oz raisins
60g/2oz pecans, chopped (optional)

But our very own mumsnet recipe has less choc but the addition of drinking choc and sugar...

225g digestive biscuits (crushed)
110g butter
4 tsp drinking chocolate
2 tbsp golden syrup
2 tsp soft brown sugar
110g dark cooking chocolate

Can anybody tell me what their fool proof method is before I start? Thanks smile

BBC recipe. Drinking chocolate is vile, if I used the mumsnet recipe I'd use proper cocoa instead.

I've made it with chocolate. Preliminary tasting is proving popular.

Now it just needs to set <drums fingers>

<presses top, leaves finger marks, resumes drumming>

Torturous blardy recipe grin
