I feel that I should introduce this recipe with a health warning…it’s highly addictive! Even more dangerously, it’s very quick and easy to make. The trouble is, it tends to disappear extremely quickly! No-one can seem to resist it. I usually make this as a Malteser traybake but one day I decided to give it a try with my favourite chocolate – mint Aero and mint Aero Bubbles. To say this went down well with everyone would be an understatement. I only got one small piece! My boys loved it.
Whenever I make this, it doesn’t last five minutes. Don’t say I didn’t warn you 😉
Mint Aero Traybake
400g Milk chocolate (or a mixture of both dark and milk)
3tbsp golden syrup
280g digestive or rich tea biscuits
100g mint Aero bubbles
100g bar Mint Aero
For the topping:
150g Melted milk chocolate
100g bar Mint Aero, roughly chopped OR Mint Aero bubbles, for decoration
Grease and line a 22cm square baking tin.
Place your biscuits in a large sandwich/freezer bag and using a rolling pin or something similar, bash the heck out of them. You are aiming for a mixture of crumbs and both small and larger pieces of biscuits. It helps keep the texture interesting!
In a large pan, slowly melt together the butter, chocolate and syrup, stirring until everything is completely melted and smooth. Take off the heat and leave for a few minutes, then add the crushed biscuits, the mint aero chunks and Aero bubbles.
Stir together quickly but gently, then pour into your lines tin. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, flatten it out as level as you can. Pop it in the fridge while you get on with the topping.
In a small bowl set over a small pan of simmering water, slowly melt the milk chocolate until smooth. Pour the melted chocolate over the traybake, tilting the edges so the chocolate evenly covers the whole surface. Scatter over the chopped mint aero and aero bubbles. Pop in back in the fridge until set (this is definitely the hardest part) Cut into squares and watch it disappear……
