    i used milk arrowroots, as that was what I had in the cupboard. I also didn't have enough dark choc so used milk choc in the base and also added some sultanas. I wanted the topping to be quite soft so it wouldn't crack when I cut it so I added extra butter. I think I used 150g choc and almost 100g marg. I found that it served many more than 8. It was so deliciously rich that I cut it into bite sized pieces. I have since had two requests to bring it to other functions. - 14 Oct 2011
