Apricot Date And Chocolate Ginger Slice

March6

This is divine. It’s quite rich so the slices should probably not be too big!

  • 3/4 cup chopped dates
  • 3/4 cup chopped apricots
  • 4 1/2  oz/125 gm butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 60 gm crystallised ginger (sliced thinly)
  • 3 cups cornflakes
  • 150 gm dark chocolate

Method:

Put chopped fruit, butter, sugar and ginger into a pot and heat slowly so the butter melts and the fruit softens. Add the cornflakes and mix well. Put into a 28 cm/11 in  x 18 cm/7 in  tin and press down. Refrigerate for an hour. Take the dark chocolate and heat in a double boiler. When melted spread over the slice and put back in the fridge until the chocolate hardens. Slice and store in the fridge in a air-tight container.
