Grandma K's Chocolate Crunch Slice

This brings back lots of childhood memories! It was one of our favourite sweet treats when we were growing up.

My grandmother and mother made this often, perhaps because it was so quick and easy to make. It took me about 15 minutes from start to finish.


  • 115 g (4 oz) Margarine or Butter

  • 55 g (2 oz) Sugar

  • 2 level tsp Syrup

  • 1 tsp Cocoa Powder

  • 200 g (7 oz) Milk Arrowroot Biscuits / Rich Tea Biscuits

  • 225 g (8 oz) Plain or Milk Chocolate


  1. Prepare a small tray by lining with parchment paper (I used 20 cm x 20 cm)

  2. Put the butter, sugar, syrup and cocoa powder in a pan. Allow the butter to melt over low heat and stir all ingredients until combined and smooth.

  3. Crush the biscuits in a food processor (or by placing in a freezer bag and crushing with a rolling pin) until they resemble smooth, fine crumbs.

  4. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the biscuit crumbs until combined.

  5. Press the mixture in to the prepared tray using the back of a spoon until evenly spread and tightly packed.

  6. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water.

  7. Pour the melted chocolate over the top of the biscuit mixture, spread evenly and allow to cool.

  8. Cut in to slices and enjoy!
