This is a rich chocolate slice with biscuit crumbs and raisins. Golden syrup plays a big factor in the taste and it is all topped off with chocolate.
The recipe can be made in a smaller tray (20cm square) for a thicker base, and that one can then use less chocolate for the topping.
This was amazing, but what made it even better was double the amount of golden syrup and 6tsp cocoa. I used Ginger nuts instead of rich tea/digestives and threw in some fresh chopped ginger (about a thumb sized piece) I only used dark chocolate on the top. Made it at 7pm lastnight, by 7:30 it had gone. Ooops. - 05 Jul 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Altered ingredient amounts. Didn't seem to have quite enough raisins in mine so I added a couple of extra handfuls - 14 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Delicious! I was a bit confused by the 'swiss roll tin' though. I used a small roasting dish which did the job fine. Very nice indeed! - 14 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
