Ingredients

    250g/9oz good quality milk chocolate
    50g/2oz/1/4 cup unsalted butter
    115g/40z digestive biscuits (graham crackers)
    115g/4oz/1/2 cup ready-to-eat prunes

Tips

Will keep for 2-3 days in fridge


Directions

Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a heatproof bowl. Add the butter and melt in the microwave on high for 1-2 minutes. Stir to mix and set aside. (Alternatively, place the chocolate peices in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water and leave until melted, stirring frequently.)

Put the biscuits in a plastic bag and seal, then bash into small pieces with a rolling pin. Alternatively, break up the biscuits in a food processor but do not let them become too fine. Use the pulse button. Roughly chop the prunes and stir into the melted chocolate with the biscuits.

Spoon the chocolate and prune mixture into a 20cm/8in square cake tin and smooth away any lumps and bumps with the back of the spoon. Chill for 1-2 hours until set. Remove the cake from the refrigerator and, using a sharp knife, cut into 12 bars of about 1.5ch/1/2 in thickness each.
