These crunchy, chocolaty squares are the yummiest, messiest things ever! Super easy to make, with no expensive ingredients (I always use marg – who can afford butter?!). These will be a hit with the whole family. Make sure your kids are not wearing their Sunday best, as things are bound to get messy!
This is a family favourite recipe that has been handed down. One of those handwritten treasures you always hang on to, and that comes out with every family get-together. I have tweaked it slightly to add a coffee flavour, and also swapped out some of the icing sugar for regular sugar to add extra crunch. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!
Recipe: Marie Biscuit Chocolate Squares
Makes: approx 30 squares
You will need:
- 450gr icing sugar
- 50gr regular sugar
- 4 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
- 250gr Margarine or Butter (I use Stork margarine)
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 1/2 pack Marie Biscuits – crushed into small pieces (chunky, not powder)
- handful of chocolate chips
- 15ml strong coffee
- Melt the Margarine on the stove top on a low heat. Do not allow it to boil.
- Add icing sugar, regular sugar and cocoa to the melted marg and mix well.
- Beat the eggs in a bowl and add to the icing mix on the stove. Be sure to mix the egg in quickly to prevent it from cooking.
- Add in vanilla essence, coffee and crushed biscuits. Mix well and remove from heat.
- Add in chocolate chips, saving a few to sprinkle on the top.
- Pour chocolate mix into well greased glass dish and flatten with the back on a spoon. Take remaining chocolate chips and sprinkle them on top.
- Place dish in fridge and leave to cool completely. Once the mix has set, cut into squares and move to freezer for storage.
Top tip: Always leave the squares in the fridge or freezer, or the chocolate will melt.
Stays good for up to a week.
