Ingredients

  • 200 unsalted butter
  • 200g light brown sugar
  • 150g dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 100g milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 160g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 20g cocoa
  • 1 x 205g pack shortbread bites, broken into large chunks
For the icing:
  • 200g milk chocolate, finely chopped
  • 150ml double cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 75g ready-made caramel sauce, plus 2 tbsp to drizzle
  • 5 Twix fingers, sliced

Step by step

Get ahead
Keeps for 3 days in an airtight container, or can be frozen.
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Grease and line a 30 x 20cm traybake tin with baking paper and set aside.
  2. Put the butter and sugar into a large saucepan and stir over a low/medium heat, until the mixture is smooth and melted. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for about 5 minutes before stirring in the chocolate to melt in the residual heat (be careful, as if the mixture is too hot, the chocolate will seize and). Stir until just combined. Once it has cooled to lukewarm, beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  3. Sift in the flour, baking powder, cocoa and a pinch of salt and beat together until just combined. Finally, fold through the shortbread chunks until evenly dispersed, then smooth the mixture into the prepared tin. Bake for about 25 minutes, until risen and firm, still slightly fudgy in the centre (a skewer will come out with a few crumbs). Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Once the cake is in the oven, get on with the icing. Put the chocolate in a mixing bowl. Heat the cream until beginning to simmer, then pour it over the chocolate. Leave to stand for a minute, then whisk the mixture until smooth and glossy. Stir in the vanilla. Put in the fridge for 1½ hours until firm, or speed things up by putting it in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  5. Beat the chocolate mixture with an electric whisk until thick and spreadable. Whisk in the 75g caramel, then spread the icing evenly over the top of the traybake. Drizzle with the extra caramel, sprinkle with the Twix slices and cut into 20 rectangles to serve.
