* 1 x 379g can condensed milk
* 100g golden syrup
* 350g dark chocolate broken into small pieces (or you can use a mix of milk and dark chocolate)

3. Add in the caster sugar and mix through until in the mixture is combined.
4. Tip the mixture into the cake tin and spread it out evenly, the press down firmly with your knuckles so that it is tightly packed in the tin.
