  • Stir all the ingredients for the base together. You can simply use a wooden spoon and bowl but I am a woman of ease and threw it all into the magimix for a couple of high powered seconds.
  • Press the sandy mixture into the lined brownie or simialr style tin and make the surface as even as possible. Its quite satisfying seeing the gentle finger indentations in the soft rich mixture.
  • To make the topping simply put the chocolate and butter in a glass bowl and microwave for only a minute or two to melt.
  • Spread on base and put the tin in the fridge to set.
  • When the chocolate has hardened cut into mini squares, put the kettle on, sit back and relax. Bliss.
