Chocolate Hedgehogs

I often get asked for the recipe for the little treat I put out for my ladies at the classes.  It’s super simple to make, hence the reason I always make it.

2 x 200g packets Tennis biscuits, coarsely chopped
250g butter, chopped
1 1/4 cups caster sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 egg, lightly beaten
150g dark chocolate, melted
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1. Grease a 20cm x 30cm lamington pan; line base and two long sides with baking paper, extending paper 2cm above edges of pan.
2. Crush tennis biscuits.
3. Place butter, sugar and sifted cocoa in a medium pan; stir over heat until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; whisk in egg.
4. Pour chocolate mixture over biscuit mixture; mix well. Press into prepared pan. Cover; refrigerate for 3 hours
5. Melt chocolate and oil and pour over the chilled chocolate/biscuit mix. Let it set for 20min. Turn onto chopping board and cut up. DELICIOUS!!

    Can these biscuits be frozen and eaten at a later date?

      I have never tried it, so I can’t say. But I would imagine that they’ll be fine.
