Stunning, but easy to make

For the base:

Shortbread biscuits, crushed

250g

Melted butter

55g

For the caramel:

Butter

150g

Dark brown soft sugar

150g

Stem ginger, finely chopped

40g

For the topping:

Dark chocolate

200g

Mini gold sugar stars

10g

You will also need:

20cm (8in) brownie tin, lined with baking parchment

Step 1 of 4

Combine the crushed biscuits and the melted butter, press into the tin. Chill for 20 mins.

Step 2 of 4

Heat the sugar and remaining butter in a non-stick pan gently, stirring, until melted. Add the condensed milk and ginger and bring to a rapid boil, stirring continuously. Cook for a minute or so or until the filling has thickened. Remove from the heat, and carefully pour the gingery caramel over the set biscuit base (check that not all the ginger is in one spot!). Cool, then chill until set.

Step 3 of 4

Melt the chocolate and then pour over the caramel.

Step 4 of 4

Chill until set. Remove from the tin and cut into squares - dip your knife in hot water (then dry on kitchen towel) to make it easier to cut through the chocolate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning, but easy to make These look so amazing but are relatively easy to make. You just need to be patient with all the chilling. Also, white chocolate is not mentioned in the ingredients but is on the method. I used gold and pearl ball decorations instead of stars and still look striking. Taste incredible. A nice bite of ginger but not overpowering. Be careful if size of tray you use. My caramel layer came out quite thick and was hard to cut the chocolate without it cracking but I think it makes them look kind of nice.
