3. Next, break the digestive biscuits into 1cm pieces making sure not to crush them completely and place in the mixing bowl.

4. Chop the glacé cherries into quarters and add to the cake and biscuit mixture along with the mini marshmallows.

5. Place the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a large heatproof bowl and melt slowly over a pan of boiling water ensuring the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
