    No that is something I might make. It sounds yummy and full of calories. That’s my favorite kind of food.

    Before I start you have to tell me what caster sugar is and what a Swiss roll tin is? After all, I’m only 83 and not expected to know everything.

    Darlene, caster sugar is sold as “superfine” sugar in the United States, and a swiss roll tin is a shallow rectangular baking tin.

    Let me know when it is ready and I will be round for coffee.

    Sugar is an acquired taste; don’t eat it & you will dislike it. I cut out our daily ice cream for a month & after that it was YUK!

    Then you can fill up on fruits & vegetables.

    Welcome bikehikebabe! Alas I am hooked on a little sweetness. Sugar in my coffee and a little dark chocolate are two of my vices!

    Dark chocolate is NOT a vice. But I eat too much of it. Too much of a good thing is… I forget the rest.

    I have a variant of this GM, using crushed graham crackers.
    Now alas no more as I can’t have cookies or biscuits or all the other lovelies I used to eat too much of. (Like choc kimberleys, they should be illegal)

    @Bikehikebabe – Too much of a good thing is… F-U-N!

    @WWW – I agree that chocolate Kimbrerleys should be illegal, that is because I don’t actually like them. 🙁

    I saw this recipe and got a notion to make them. Being a 20 yr old male, I don’t bake much (ever). I really enjoyed making and eating these. Although I used digestive biscuits, It was simply delicious!
    Thank you.
