If, like me, you love cooking and baking but aren’t exactly a whizz in the kitchen, then you will love the recipe that I am going to share today as it is a super easy (and tasty) chocolate crunch recipe!

Now I put in the title that this recipe is vegan, but don’t let that put you off! You can easily substitute any of the ingredients to fit your personal tastes but I want to show you how I make them. When you think of chocolate crunch I reckon your first thought is the traditional recipe that used to come with school dinners, but my recipe is slightly different to that (but personally I think it is better!)

Now for the batch in the picture I doubled the quantities but you can stick to the standard quantities if you wish.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp cocoa
  • 200g digestive biscuits (not all types are vegan but I used the Aldi ones which are!)
  • 50g butter (I use dairy free Pure sunflower spread)
  • 50g golden syrup
  • Your choice of chocolate to top (I used Aldi dark chocolate chips!)

Method

  1. Crush biscuits into crumbs using a rolling pin.
  2. Melt butter, cocoa and syrup in a saucepan but do not boil.
  3. Stir the biscuit crumbs into the melted mixture.
  4. Press biscuit mixture into a tin.
  5. Melt chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water and pour over the crunch and allow to set.
  6. Pop in the fridge to chill and once cool cut into pieces.

So there you have it - a simple recipe but tasty nonetheless! I would recommend using slightly more syrup than you think as my sometimes my biscuit mixture isn’t sticky enough, which can lead to very crumbly pieces that slightly fall apart! I hope this recipe has inspired you to try making something from scratch, let us know if you try the recipe yourself.
