This is an old-school bakery classic, and with good reason! The three layers work so well together – crunchy biscuit, creamy filling and chocolate on top, what more could you want?

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line a 20x30cm pan.Combine all ingredients for crust, and mix well. Pour into prepared pan evenly and tap on bench top to release bubbles of air. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until firm. Allow to cool.
