You will need: a 30 × 23cm traybake tin.


Grease and line a 30 × 23cm traybake tin with non-stick baking paper.

Place the milk chocolate in a large heatproof bowl and add the butter and syrup. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water and heat gently, stirring, until melted.

Place the Bournville chocolate into a small heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water until melted.

Add the biscuits to the milk chocolate mixture and fold together until well coated. Spoon into the prepared tin. Sprinkle over the Crunchie bars and press down firmly. Drizzle with the melted dark chocolate in a zig zag pattern. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours until firm.
