On New Year's Eve I went to a fantastic party at a friends house. I made these delicious Chocolate and Ginger Refrigerator Squares. She put them out on a plate and took them round and they were all gone within minutes!! You only need a small square though, they're very rich!
Chocolate and Ginger Refrigerator Squares
300g ginger nut biscuits, roughly crushed
140g crystallised stem ginger, finely chopped
300g plain chocolate
100g butter, diced
100g golden syrup
Line a 20 x 30cm tin with baking parchment. Mix the biscuits with most of the ginger, then set aside. Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally, until smooth and glossy. Pour this over the biscuit and ginger mixture and mix together well.
Tip the mixture into the prepared tin and sprinkle over the reserved ginger, then flatten the top lightly - it doesn't need to be completely smooth. Chill for at least 2 hrs, or overnight, before cutting into small squares.
