Date and Ginger Slice
1 cup dates, chopped
125 gm (4 ounces) butter (not margarine)
1/2 cup brown sugar
5 cubes of preserved ginger, chopped
3 cups cornflakes
125 gm (4 ounces) dark chocolate
Put dates, butter, sugar and ginger in a saucepan. Heat gently until butter is melted. Remove from heat, add cornflakes and mix well. Press into a shallow greased tin measuring roughly 20 cm x 30 cm (7″ x 11″). Set aside to cool.
Melt chocolate and quickly drizzle over cooled slice.
Notes: Don’t use margarine in this recipe. It needs the butter in order to remain more rigid.
