Method

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes plus 3 hours chilling time

Base

Place the crushed digestive biscuits in a bowl and add the melted margarine. Mix well.

Using the back of a spoon press the mixture into the base and up the sides of a lightly greased 24cm (8 inch) sandwich tin.

Once the base and sides are covered in an even thickness of biscuit mixture, place the tin in the fridge and chill until set

Filling

Mix together the SPLENDA® Granulated, cornflour and salt in a mixing bowl.

Add 1-2 tablespoons of the milk and mix until smooth.

Pour the remaining milk into a saucepan and add the chocolate.

Heat gently stirring until the chocolate is melted.

Add a little of the warmed milk and chocolate to the SPLENDA® Granulated and cornflour paste and stir well to blend, then pour back into the pan with the remaining milk and chocolate.

Continue to cook over a gentle heat until the mixture boils and thickens, stirring all the time.

Remove from the heat and stir in the margarine and vanilla extract.

Cover the surface of the hot chocolate mixture with cling film so that the film touches the surface to prevent a skin forming.

Leave to cool for 15 minutes.

Remove the cling film and pour the mixture onto the biscuit base.

Chill for 3 hours before serving.
