Today’s recipe is my 14 year old daughter’s handiwork. She adapted the recipe from one for mud pie in a book we own; we renamed it (the recipe, not the book!). I was her attempting-to-not-interfere-too-much assistant.
WHAT YOU NEED:
200g digestive biscuits (if you are outside of the UK and can’t get digestive biscuits, then graham crackers are often touted as being a suitable substitute for digestives in recipes, however graham crackers are drier and not as crumbly, so I’m not sure they would work as well in this).
175g butter (and you really do need to use butter rather than margarine so that the base sets firm).
1 tablespoon cocoa
200g milk chocolate
100g white chocolate
WHAT YOU DO:
1) Break up the digestives, but not too finely, they need to look like rubble.
2) Melt the butter, stir in the sugar and cocoa until smooth, then pour on to the digestive rubble and mix well.
3) Press it firmly into a rectangle dish or tin lined with foil. Chill for at least 2 hours.
4) Melt the milk chocolate, pour it over the base and spread it across evenly.
5) Melt the white chocolate, spoon it over the melted milk chocolate, and then use something thin and pointy to marble it into the milk chocolate. Chill until chocolate is firm.
6) Cut into pieces. It’s pretty rich and sweet with all that butter and chocolate, so you won’t want to cut your pieces too large!
