Gluten free tray no-bake
This is my Nanny Margaret’s tray no-bake recipe which i’ve adapted to gluten free because it’s so good and really easy.
I remember the recipe used to be written on the smallest and oldest looking piece of paper in the loveliest of handwriting. I can’t really create the same effect on this blog page but the taste makes up for it so try it out and let me know what you think!
You will need:
- 4oz of margarine (stork or any other ordinary marg)
- 2 heaped tablespoons of golden syrup
- 1 heaped tablespoon of sugar (normal you don’t need caster)
- 1 heaped tablespoon of raisins
- 2 heaped tablespoons of drinking chocolate (you could just get a sachet of ordinary hot chocolate but check its gluten free)
- 400g of gluten free digestives. Alternatively, I have found that Aldi’s gluten free oat biscuits work very well
- One large packet of cooking chocolate (check the coeliac directory to make sure it’s gluten free)
- Melt the margarine and the sugar in a pan, then when it has melted add the drinking chocolate, raisins and syrup. Don’t have the heat too high or it will burn.
- Remove from the heat and add the digestives crushed. Mix together (You best make sure you test it at this point to check it tastes scrumptious!)
- Pat into a baking tray.
- Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water and then pour over the biscuit mixture.
- Sample the remaining chocolate in the bowl (this was compulsory as a child!)
- Refrigerate and cut into squares once it has set a little. Don’t leave it until it goes completely cold or it will break when you cut it with a knife.
