It has been quite awhile since I baked for MrD's workmates.
Used to be an almost weekly affair and they have grown accustomed to getting some handmade treats from my kitchen.
Although I'm well-known among his colleagues, I've yet to meet any of them bar one.

Since I'm up to my neck with cookies - left from the eid celebration - what would be better than to make a recipe using those less popular cookies.

 To begin with, I'm using my really short shortbread cookies as the base, all 8oz of them.
To the crumbly cookies add 4 oz melted butter, 2 tablespoons sugar (less if your cookies are already quite sweet),  2 tablespoons golden syrup, 4 teaspoons cocoa powder, raisins (optional)

Pour mixture into a swiss roll size tin and press down.
Melt about 8oz cooking chocolate and pour over the mixture in the tin.
Pop the tin into the fridge and leave for about 1 hour to set. 

 I'm sure those guys will enjoy this!
