Chocolate Fudge bars with Jordans Country Crisp - yum!

The lovely people at Jordans sent me some chocolate Country Crisp and although it isn't as good as my childhood favourite, Count Chocula (which was covered in sugar!) This chocolate cereal is yummy and I can bet much healthier than the Count and his marshmallows!

Here's a recipe for some chocolate fudgy bars!

Makes 18

Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 35 mins

150g dark chocolate
120g unsalted butter
 2 large eggs
150g soft dark brown sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
50g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
 240g fresh or frozen pitted cherries, defrosted if frozen (unless you like cherries, I would leave these out - icky!)
100g Jordans Chocolate Country Crisp

1.   Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4/180C/160C fan. Line a 20cm/8” square baking tin with non-stick baking parchment.
2.   Melt the chocolate and butter together in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir occasionally. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
3.   In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar, using an electric hand whisk, until light and doubled in volume. Stir in the vanilla extract and melted chocolate mixture.
4.   Fold in the cherries, and Jordans Chocolate Country Crisp. Pour into prepared tin and smooth the surface with a spoon. Bake for about 35 minutes, until the cake is set and no longer wobbles when the tin is shaken slightly (it will still be quite sticky, but will firm up once cooled). Leave to cool completely in the tin, before cutting into bars.

Enjoy! And hint, hint, ladies who don't know what to bring to the potluck - here's an idea!
