These Biscuit Bars Are Great To Make With Your Kids

Kids are often enthusiastic about baking, but when you think about the time, mess, and hassle it can create, you might not be feeling so keen. Meet your kids halfway and try this simple biscuit bar bake, which only requires some simple techniques and enough patience to let the bars set in the fridge. You can portion the bars up into as large or as small servings as you like, and the bars will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks, so if sugar consumption is something you’re watching in your household this recipe is also a great choice.


(Serves 12)

  • 1 1/2 cups of milk chocolate
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup of broken biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup of ground almonds


  1. Grease and line a baking tin 10 x 10 inches.
  2. Melt the chocolate and the butter together in a non-stick saucepan.
  3. Bash the biscuits up (you can place them in a sealable bag and hit them with a rolling pin to do this), then stir them into the butter and chocolate mix.
  4. Stir in the maple syrup and the ground almonds.
  5. Pour the mix into the baking tin, and then place this in the fridge. Allow the biscuit bars to set for 2 hours, then slice them into portions.
