A firm favourite – these no-bake and easy to make chocolate biscuit squares (that rhymed..) make great party guests, and love to hang out with tea and coffee.


This recipe will take 15 minutes to assemble and looks sparkly with the addition of edible shimmer and silver bling. Ready, set, go….

  • 500g butter
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1kg icing sugar
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 Tbs. Vanilla essence
  • 1 packet Marie biscuits & 1 packet of Tennis biscuits (crushed)
  • Shimmer and silver “Bling” Balls for decoration

Melt the butter (on the stove or in a microwave), mix in the cocoa and icing sugar in a very large bowl (don’t worry about sieving – the mixture becomes thick enough to mix out all lumps). Stir in the eggs and mix until smooth and glossy.

Add the crushed biscuits and mix into the glorious chocolate gloop until well covered. At this stage add other optional extras – glacĂ© cherries/ rice crispie cereal/ mini marshmallows/ nuts.

Spoon out onto a pan and flatten the mixture with a spatula. (This mixture can be spooned into any container to set – asses how high you would like your squares to be and adjust by pouring into a wider lipped container). Decorate with sprinkles at will.

Refrigerate for 2-4 hours or till set, cut into squares and keep in an airtight container.
