These squares are little bites of sheer indulgence. They are incredibly easy to make and utterly delicious. They are chewy, chocolatey, caramely, coconuty layers of yumminess. You can tweak them to your hearts content. If you do not have coconut on hand, feel free to add oats, rice crispies, chocolate malt balls, M&M’s, muesli. Whatever you feel like. I used coconut, chopped hazelnuts, caramel bits and a few flaked almonds.


125g / 8 tablespoons butter, melted
150g / 5oz digestive biscuits, crushed (I used petit beurre)
1 tin (400g / 14oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup chocolate chips (I used 1/3 each of dark, milk and white)
2 1/2 cups chopped nuts, coconut, caramel bits, oats, M&M’s (can use 1 or all or a combo)


Preheat the oven to 180C / 360F
Butter and flour a 20cm x 20cm / 9″ x 9″ non stick square baking dish
Mix the melted butter with the crushed biscuits
Press them down firmly into the pan
Pour half the condensed milk over the biscuit base
Add all the other ingredients, one layer at a time and press down
Top with the remaining condensed milk
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the top is golden
Cool in the pan then remove and cut into squares when completely cool
