how to make this no bake chocolate orange traybake
(scroll to the bottom of the post to find printable recipe card)
First of all, melt milk or dark chocolate, butter and golden syrup together in a large saucepan.
when all of the chocolate has completely melted, stir in broken digestive biscuits, a box of Orange Matchmakers and a chopped up Terry’s chocolate orange (keep a few Matchmakers and chocolate orange segments back for decorating the top)
Press into a 22x22cm square tin and place in the fridge. Melt some milk chocolate and pour over the top of the traybake, tilting the pan edges so you get a nice even covering.
Decorate with the remaining matchmakers and chocolate orange. Place in the fridge for 2 hours or until firm.
When I first created this recipe I used orange Aero, but it seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth!
However, if you can manage to get hold of some feel free to use that instead of the matchmakers if you like.
