Great with a cuppa Chocolate Slice

I love making this as a treat to have with a cuppa, especially if I have friends around.  It makes a great addition to a hamper of homemade treats should you want to make one as a gift for someone special.  You can buy a cheap packet of biscuits or use some that you have made that are past their best or been bashed about in the biscuit tin.  Ginger biscuits give an interesting flavour too, for a change.

225g dark chocolate
115g butter
1 tin (397g) sweetened condensed milk
1 packet (250g) plain sweet biscuits, crushed into small pieces
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
1/2 cup raisins or sultanas
200g white chocolate

Put the dark chocolate, butter and condensed milk into a large saucepan and gently heat until everything has melted and combined.  Add the crushed biscuits, dried apricots and raisins then mix well.  Pour into a 20 cm x 30 cm slice tin lined with non-stick baking paper.

Chill in the fridge until firm. Once the slice has set, gently melt the white chcolate and spread it all over the top of the slice. Chill in the fridge once again and mark into squares when the white chocolate is firm but not hard.  Slice in to squares and then store in an airtight container in the fridge.
