It’s Christmas time… so a slight (OK HUGE) deviation from my normal form of content! But let’s be realistic, what you do and eat for a few days over Christmas is not going to de-rail your normal improved lifestyle the rest of the year. It’s what you do MOST of the time that matters.

This little gem was discovered via a friend on Facebook and is the perfect solution to those “surplus to requirements” Mince Pies…

Ingredients

  • 200g dark chocolate

  • 200g milk chocolate

  • 150g butter

  • 3 tbsp golden syrup

  • 3 mince pies

  • 200g shortbread

  • 100g Malteasers

  • 100g glace cherries

  • 50g mini marshmallows

  • Optional: icing sugar

Directions

  • Fill a saucepan half full with boiling water and place on the hob.
  • Add the chocolate and butter to a large bowl that fits snugly into the saucepan and place it on top.
  • Heat very gently, stirring the mixture until it the ingredients have melted.
  • Remove from the heat and mix in the golden syrup.
  • Add the mince pies and shortbread, broken into large bite sized pieces, along with the Malteasers, cherries and mini marshmallows. Mix well.
  • Line a baking dish with greaseproof paper. I used a 25cm sq dish.
  • Transfer the mixture into the dish and press down with the back of a spoon.
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours and then cut into 16 pieces.
  • This is optional but if you like you can dust a little icing sugar on top.
