royal biscuits

Okay, so according to myself, Si, my friends and all my family these are the best biscuits EVER. Even Prince William served something similar at his wedding reception. Now I have no idea if the same recipe was used, but this recipe has been passed down to me from my gran, and she named them Pralines. Now I am no expert but I'm pretty sure these aren't pralines {or if they are please enlighten me, it might just be a Scottish thing} so after racking my brains for another name, I have aptly come up with 'Royal cakes' {don't sue me though if there is another cake under this name}
So anyway, I begin...

8oz chocolate {baking or normal}
2oz castor sugar
2oz drinking chocolate
4oz margarine
2oz dried milk
2 table spoons syrup
1 table spoon vanilla essence
1 cup of raisons
1/2 ib rich tea biscuits

This recipe is easy peasy, just make sure you have everything measured out before getting started.

So here we go-

1. Break biscuits into small crumbly pieces in a bowl
2. Add the raisons and vanilla essence. Mix everything around
3. Melt the marg, sugar, syrup, with the drinking choc and dried milk, until you have a smooth mixture
4. Add to the biscuit mix
5. Roll the mix out in a tin 1/2 inch thick {cheats tip, I use a plastic bag over my hand to press the mix down}
5. melt the chocolate and then spread over the mixture
6. Leave in the fridge for 30-45 mins, or until set.
7. East those bad boys up. 

Let me know what you think :)
