  • 200 grams dark chocolate
  • 4 cups cornflakes
  • 1/2 cup unsalted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup glace cherries (60 grams)
  • 3/4 cup sultanas (110 grams)
  • 2/3 cup condensed milk


  • Pre-heat oven to moderate.
  • Grease a slice tin (approx 28 x 18cm) and line with baking paper, allowing the baking paper to overhang each side (to assist with removal once it's ready to slice).
  • Melt dark chocolate (by chopping, placing in a heatproof bowl and microwaving for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each time).
  • Pour chocolate into the slice tin and place into fridge to set.
  • Place remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  • Pour mixture onto chocolate layer in slice tin. Use the back of a metal spoon to even out the mixture and press into the chocolate layer. Wet hands and use your hands to push the mixture quite firmly into the tin.
  • Bake in a moderate oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  • Lift the slice from the tray using the baking paper edges and cut into 24 squares using a sharp knife.
