I have marshmallows and macadamias and I quite like him at the moment, so thought "Why not?" The Hazelnut Squares are all but gone, and it's nice to have something lurking in the background to satisfy those sweet tooth cravings.... of which we have many.
I can't help but think back to when my brother and I were kids, and our mum used to bake every Wednesday of our lives. My brother pointed out a few years back, that on those days we just couldn't win... if we loved what she'd baked we'd eat it all rather quickly - in which case she'd vow never to make it again because we were greedy.. ooooorrrr we didn't like what she'd baked and didn't touch it... in which case she'd vow never to make it again because we were ungrateful.
There was a kind of twisted logic in that.
I think I'm turning into my mum.
Shoot me. Shoot me now.

Prep time - 10 minutes
Chill time - 3hrs
You will need
A large bowl
A 20cm square baking tin/dish
300g dark chocolate - roughly chopped
100g milk chocolate - roughly chopped
2 tbsp runny honey
110g macadamia nuts (or hazelnuts) - chopped roughly
110g digestive biscuits - chopped roughly
110g mini marshmallows
Use the cling film to line the baking tin. It'll make it easier to remove the cake once it's chilled.
In the bowl, place the plain and milk chocolate, the honey and the butter and melt on 50% power in your microwave for about 3 minutes. Checking it every minute and stirring it to prevent crystallisation... OR melt it all over a gently simmering saucepan of water.
Once melted add the nuts, biscuits and marshmallows and mix gently to combine it all and smother it in the chocolate.
Spoon into the baking tin and level the top as best you can. Place in the fridge for three hours, or until solid.
Turn out onto a chopping board, remove cling film and cut into bars...
Go to your local hardware store and buy a padlock and chain. Chain yourself as far away from the cake as possible. Padlock it. Swallow the key.
