When the weather is so hot, the last thing I feel like doing is making it even hotter by turning the oven on. All I really want to do is sip iced coffee and eat watermelon wedges and salad. I’m sure I’m not alone in this!
That’s when easy, no bake recipes like this come in very handy. All you need to do is crush up some biscuits, melt chocolate and butter together, stir it together then pop it in the fridge to set. I often make this a few days before I actually need it – it sits quite happily in the fridge for several days. However if my hungry teens end up finding it, then it’s game over!
You all loved my no bake mint Aero traybake recipe so much, I thought I would try a chocolate orange version. And dear readers, it was a HUGE success!
I used a bar of orange Aero and some Terry’s chocolate orange minis. I wanted to include some orange Aero bubbles, but I have a feeling they’ve been discontinued because I haven’t seen them in a while. Gutted! If you’ve spotted them in the shops lately, do let me know!
No bake chocolate orange traybake
300g milk chocolate, or a mixture of dark and milk chocolate
2 tbsp golden syrup
300g rich tea or digestive biscuits
1 100g bar orange Aero, roughly chopped
1 125g bag Terry’s chocolate orange minis (keep a few to decorate the top)
For the topping:
100g milk or dark chocolate
A few mini chocolate orange pieces for decoration
Grease and line a 22cm square tin.
Place the biscuits in a large bowl and crush them with the end of a rolling pin until you have a mixture of crumbs and pieces of biscuit.
Place the chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a large pan and melt over a low heat. When the mixture has melted and is smooth, remove from the heat and pour in the crushed biscuits, orange Aero chunks and mini chocolate orange pieces. Stir together then quickly tip into the lined tin, smoothing it out with a spatula as best as you can.
Melt the 100g chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Pour the melted chocolate over the top of the traybake and smooth out with a spatula. Top with the mini chocolate orange pieces and place in the fridge to set before cutting into bars.
Pin me for later…
