No Bake Crunchie Tray Bake

No Bake Crunchie Tray Bake

Nearly two years ago I shared a recipe for Malteser Tray Bake and I can’t tell you how popular it’s been – I’ve had lots of people message me to say how much they love this recipe. It’s so easy to put together, you don’t need to be able to bake to do it, and it’s a sure fire winner with everyone. Today I’m sharing with you my recipe for Crunchie Tray Bake – it’s equally indulgent! I tested it on my friend Lynsey (who, if you remember, introduced me to the Malteser Tray Bake) and her eyes were like saucers…I think it was a success!

To make your own, you’ll need:

  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 100g butter
  • 4 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 225g plain digestive biscuits
  • 3 Crunchie bars

You’ll also need:

  • Medium saucepan
  • Sealable bag
  • Rolling pin
  • 23cm square cake tin
  • Cling film
  • Measuring scales
  • Spoon
  • Spatula

The technical bit:

  1. Break up your digestive biscuits to a crumb in a bowl (you can do this by hand…but it is more fun to put them into a sealed bag and bash them (gently) with a rolling pin. Put them to one side for now
  2. Without opening the Crunchies, hit them 3-4 times with the rolling pin to break them into smaller pieces
  3. Line your cake tin with cling film (you don’t have to, put it makes it so much easier to lift out your tray bake if you do…Lynsey didn’t so I’ve got her to thank for this tip!)
  4. Put the butter, chocolate and golden syrup into a saucepan and gently heat on the hob (lowest heat), stirring continuously until they have melted
  5. Add your digestives and stir well
  6. Add your broken Crunchies, stir in (gently so you don’t crush them any more) quickly before the chocolate melts too much
  7. Transfer to the cake tin, gently pressing down and into the corners to fill any gaps – I found using a silicone spatula very helpful for this
  8. Put in the fridge until it has fully set. I generally make mine the night before so I leave them in the fridge overnight – if you’re making them to eat on the same day (and why wouldn’t you?!) I would leave it in the fridge for 3 hours +
  9. Remove your tray bake from the fridge and cut into small squares

Why not parcel some of the tray bake pieces into a presentation bag and give them as a little gift to someone? It will make their day!
