Ingredients

  • 550 g digestive biscuits
  • 275 g unsalted butter
  • 275 g dark chocolate (broken into pieces)
  • 275 g (2 cups) raisins ( if you don’t like raisins you can leave them or add nuts)
  • 300 g condensed milk
  • 500 g milk chocolate
  • I like to add mini smarties to decorate

 

  1. Line a rectangular tin (doesn’t really matter about size but mine is 24 x 34 cm)
  2. Place the digestives into a large bowl and smash them into small pieces with the end of a rolling pin.
  3. Melt the butter and dark chocolate in a heat proof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally. I find it easier to melt either the butter or chocolate first then add the second one.
  4. Once melted remove the bowl from the pan and stir in the raisins (or nuts) and condensed milk.
  5. Fold the broken biscuits into the mixture until all of the biscuits are covered with the chocolate mixture.
  6. Press the mixture into your tin, make sure it goes into all of the corners and try to make it as flat as possible.
  7. Place the tray into the fridge for 20-30 minutes to set.
  8. After the splodge is set, melt the milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl as before. when melted pour over the splodge and spread it evenly.
  9. Pop back into the fridge for 20-30 minutes or until set.
  10. Cut the chocolate splodge and enjoy.
