Serves: 12 

  • 110g butter
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan; remove from heat and stir in the sugar and digestive biscuit crumbs. Spread the mixture into the bottom of a 20x30cm baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven until slightly firm, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir the coconut and condensed milk together in a bowl; spread over the baked base and return to oven for 12 minutes more. Set aside to cool at least 10 minutes.
  4. Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over just-barely simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Stir the almonds into the melted chocolate; spread evenly over the cooled coconut layer. Allow to cool until the chocolate sets.
