How to make hedgehog

Written by 2 minutes, 25 seconds Read

 

A couple of weekends ago MTV and I headed up to the snow for the weekend with a group of friends. Yes, readers in the UK and Europe it does actually get cold in Australia and we even have snow in some mountains including at Mount Hotham which is where we went. I think the steep price of eating out at ski resorts is a world wide phenomenon and so I decided to make up a batch of hedgehog for snacking on. You’ve got to keep your energy up for skiing somehow and a chocolate treat is often the easiest way.
Chocolate hedgehog – ready to be taken to the snow
Hedgehog was one of my favourite things to eat when I was a kid, and it’s really simple to make as you don’t have to bake it. If you have kids it would be an easy thing to make for them. If you don’t have kids then you just get more of it to eat yourself. This would also be a hit for when you have to bring something into work for a birthday or any “bring a plate” dilemma.

 

200g plain biscuits like Marie biscuits, broken into very small pieces
2 tbsp dessicated coconut
2 tbsp cocoa sugar
125g caster sugar

100g finely chopped pecan nuts
100g chocolate, chopped
25g butter
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 egg, lightly beaten

Chocolate topping
200g dark chocolate, chopped
50g butter, chopped

Mixing the chocolate into the dry ingredients – these biscuit pieces are a bit too big you want them smaller than this

1. Lightly grease a shallow cake tin. Line the base and sides with baking paper.

2. Use a rolling pin to bash the biscuits into tiny pieces then combine them with the coconut, sugar, nuts and cocoa.

3. In a saucepan mix the chocolate, butter and syrup together over a low heat for 4-5 minutes until the mixture is melted and well combined. Cool it slightly then add the egg and pour the chocolate mixture into the dry ingredients.

4. Press the hedgehog mixture firmly into the tin with the back of a spoon. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes until firm.

5. For the chocolate topping melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Spread over chilled slice. Chill for at least 45 minutes until set (overnight is better).

6. Using a hot knife, cut slab into squares. Store chilled in an airtight container.
