You’ll Need:

  • Chocolate bar
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  • 125g unsalted baking butter

I purchased all of my ingredients for less than £4 at Aldi. I like a quick fix as I’m always busy so I bought the ready caramalised condensed milk at only 89p. This is a Special product in Aldi and is only available periodically so I stock up when I can. As far as ready made caramel goes it is one of the best I’ve tried and you can’t go wrong for 89p! Plus you don’t have to faff around with a steaming hot, boiled tin and dread opening it because it’s not as caramalised as you like. The chocolate bar was from Aldi too and they are only 30p each. A lot of bakers use this chocolate and it is highly recommended.

Method:

  1. Combine the flour and sugar in a bowl and mix
  2. Add the butter ( I prefer to melt mine first) You’re after a nice dough like consistency
  3. Flatten the mix in a butter lined baking tray (mine is roughly 35x20cm) prick with a fork
  4. Bake at 180 degrees for 15-20mis or until golden brown and allow to cool
  5. Spread the caramel evenly over the base (without eating too much)
  6. Melt the chocolate and scatter it randomly over the whole tray and add sprinkles, kids love this part especially because of the mess and they can lick the remaining chocolate.
  7. Allow chocolate to set in fridge
  8. Enjoy!
