I know this recipe is good because I brought it into work and it quite literally vanished. Polite people who thought they would wait before having some were bitterly disappointed. Luckily I had a spare piece at home so I was able to make somebody tremendously happy...
Festive Star Bar
2 Heaped tablespoons Golden Syrup
150g Milk Chocolate
150g Plain Chocolate (or 300g of just one if that’s all you have)
200g Digestive Biscuits (roughly broken)
50g Flaked Almonds – toasted in a warm pan by you & left to cool for 10 mins
50g Salted Pistachios, skinned & roughly chopped
70g Mini Marshmallows
50g dried Cranberries
1tsp edible stars
Line a 19cms/7” square tin with baking paper or cling film.
Melt the butter, syrup and chocolate over a low heat. Stir occasionally to make sure all ingredients are well combined.
Add everything else to the chocolate and mix well
Transfer the mixture to your prepared tin. Level it out on top and press down well to avoid any air gaps then sprinkle with the stars before the chocolate dries
Allow to get hard before cutting into bars and store in a fridge.
