step by step

  • 1Line a 20cm square baking tin with baking paper and set aside. Put the butter, golden syrup and both types of chocolate into a saucepan and melt over a very gentle heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is melted and glossy. Remove from the heat and scrape into a mixing bowl.
  • 2Break up the biscuits roughly to create a rocky texture and tip into the chocolate mixture, along with 50g of the cranberries, half the Maltesers and 75g of the mini marshmallows. Stir everything together just until all of the ingredients are well coated. Tip into the prepared tin and pack down with a spoon before scattering over the remaining cranberries, Maltesers and mini marshmallows. Sprinkle over a pinch of sea salt and a scattering of heart confetti. Randomly arrange the Love Heart sweets on top.
  • 3Chill for a minimum of two hours to set.
  • 4Remove from the baking tin, spritz the top with gold glitter spray and cut into 16 squares to serve.
