Base

  • 300g white flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar

  • 1 egg

Filling

  • 300g milk chocolate. Either Galaxy of Dairy Milk
  • 2 eggs

  1. Mix the flour and sugar together in a mixing bowl then add the egg and butter, mixing until mixed together.
  2. Put the dough inside a freezer bag or clingfilm then leave to settle in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Take the dough and roll it out so it fits inside a large quiche or tart tin.
