This is a great, easy, forgiving recipe to make with children. It‘s a nice one to start getting them interested in the joy that baking can bring.

Grease a cake tin, anything shallow is good but not too big, about 10 inches square is good but don‘t worry too much if it‘s bigger or smaller

Melt the butter, sugar, syrup and cocoa in a large pan, stir well tio make sure it‘s all mixed in.

Add the crushed biscutes and mix well till they are all coated.

Press into your greased tin and press down well.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water and pour over the pressed mixture, shake the tin side to side to get it to even out.

Leave to cool before you cut into small pieces.

I always insist the children stay to help me wash up but they like doing this as tey get to lick the bowl! Use any broken biscutes that have rattled to the bottom of the jar, it‘s a great way to avoid waste. If you don‘t have any then just buy cheap ones, noone will know the difference.
