  • Mix the crushed biscuits with the melted butter and then lightly press the mixture into the tin to make an even layer. Chill for 20 minutes.
  • Place the butter and sugar into a non-stick pan and stir over a medium heat until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves.
  • To make a golden caramel, add the condensed milk, stirring continuously, until the first bubbles appear on the surface.
  • Remove from the heat as soon as it comes to the boil.
  • Spread the caramel evenly over the crumb base and then cool and chill for about half an hour.
  • Pour the melted chocolate over the caramel, smoothing to the edges.
  • When the chocolate has hardened a little, cut into squares.
