I piled up a selection of my baking books, praying that the macaron book would not be the one picked, anyway I needn’t have worried because the random number picker chose #1 which is The Best of Cadbury Chocolate Cooking.
Opening the book it fell open at a page 77 with a choice of four delicious recipes. I chose to make ‘Bournville and Amaretti Slice’ but as I didn’t use Bournville chocolate but a generic brand which is why I have called it
Chocolate and Amaretti Slice
50g caster sugar
This is totally indulgent, rich and needs to be served in very small slices. If I made it again, I think I would simply mix the biscuits into the chocolate, because it does tend to crumble a bit when you cut it. The liqueur comes through strongly so it’s a grown up slice, but you could use orange juice and if you don’t like almond flavours at all, then other crunchy biscuits like gingersnaps would probably work just as well.
