Chocolate Recipe

After having a great time with our baking, Class 6 have tasted our chocolate biscuit cake and come up with our own improved recipe!

Ingredients
25g butter, 100g plain chocolate, 2 tablespoons of Golden Syrup, 125g digestive biscuits.

Equipment
Glass bowl, rolling pin, food bag, wooden spoon, microwave, baking tray, grease proof paper.

Recipe
1. Put the biscuits in a large food bag.
2. Use a rolling pin to crush the biscuits until they are like breadcrumbs.
3. Break the chocolate up into a glass bowl.
4. Add the butter and syrup to the mixture. Mix together with a wooden spoon.
5. Put the bowl in the microwave for 20 seconds. Stir the mixture and repeat the process until melted.
6. Add the broken up biscuits and then stir.
7. Line the baking tray with grease proof paper.
8. Pour the mixture into the tray and flatten it with a spoon.
9. Leave the mixture in the fridge overnight to set.

Time for Chocolate!

Today Class 6 have been baking chocolate biscuit bars; combining plain chocolate, digestive biscuits, butter and golden syrup to make a delicious treat. The kids really enjoyed getting their hands dirty and making the mixture but are looking forward to tasting them even more tomorrow!

We were also pleased to welcome a special visitor to Class 6 this afternoon, when Blog the Dog sniffed out the chocolate and popped up for a sample! Blog is our foundation unit’s talented blogging dog, who spends most weekends visiting the children’s homes and blogging about his adventures.

Lilan, Jessica and Alysha looked after Blog very well and even let him join in the baking – although he did get sticky paws from the syrup!
