Lazy Girl Kitchen Sink Chocolate Slice
I'll tell you a shameful secret. I'm not a nice person when I'm tired... or hungry. I'm not talking sour and grumpy I mean demonic. You know when you are at a wedding or family occasion and some child throws a titanic tantrum, screeching like a banshee and drumming their heels on the floor..? The mother hushes and shushes red-faced while onlookers knowingly comment that the child is 'over-tired'. Well I'm the child in this scenario and last Sunday when we went for a misguidedly long mountainous walk, my mushroom hating boyfriend was that embarrassed Mother. At one stage I sat down on a rock and refused to move. When he tried to justify the steep incline by commenting on the lovely view of the lake and valley I told him that he had to be sado-masochistic to be enjoying himself and that he was going to have to cart me around in a golf buggy for the rest of my life. He is so good natured he just laughed at me. That may have infuriated me more...
Anyway the next day on Easter Monday the girls were coming down and I wanted to make something but my legs were killing me. Therefore the 'lazy girl kitchen sink chocolate slice' was born. It is sort of Rocky Road with what you fancy thrown in for sport.
Adapted from 'Scrumptious' by Diverse Abilities Plus
1 can of condensed milk
300g plain chocolate
1 tbsp golden syrup
125g mini marshmallows
100g digestive biscuits
1. Bash up maltesers and biscuits in a bag with a rolling pin. You want nice big chunks so go easy!
2. Melt condensed milk, chocolate, butter and golden syrup together in a pan over a GENTLE heat. Keep stirring regularly- there is nothing worse than the smell of burnt chocolate (apart from the smell of burnt hair but that is a whole other blog post)! Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes or your marshmallows will melt.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir gently until all is combined.
4. Pop in the fridge for about two hours.
