after all that, well, I just couldn't help myself!

After all that talk of fudgy goodness on previous posts,
well, I just couldn't help myself!

I felt the need for something fudgy and sweet, and chocolatey,
so I made this :))

Everyone has a recipe for this, but here it is for those who haven't seen it before.
....And be careful girls, it goes straight to your hips!!

And of course you can all blame Linda and her stitchery project for this sudden craving!!

From the back of the Cadbury Cocoa packet:
175gm butter
2/3 cup caster sugar
4 tblspn cocoa
2 tblspn coconut
1 egg lightly beaten
1/2 cup of shelled pistachios (I didn't have any so used a whole cup of dried fruit)
250gm pkt of plain biscuits (I used about 1 and a half packets)

In a saucepan, over a medium heat, melt together, butter, sugar and cocoa for 3 mins. Stir to make sure sugar dissolves.

Remove from heat and add coconut, egg, dried fruit and biscuits that have been broken up. Mix together and then press into a tin lined with baking paper. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour.

Then ice with chocolate icing.
