A no-bake chocolate cake perfect for entertaining - decorate with chocolate truffles or mini eggs

Method

1. Butter and line the base and sides of a loaf tin (19cm x 9.5cm x 5cm deep) with baking paper. Melt the butter, chocolate and syrup in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Set aside.

2. Dry-roast the nuts in a hot frying pan until toasty brown. Combine the melted chocolate mix, nuts, biscuits and figs together, and spoon into the tin, packing down very firmly at the bottom and smoothing the top. Leave in the fridge to set for 2-3 hours.

3. Turn out onto a plate and drizzle over the chocolate sauce so it dribbles down the sides. Decorate with the chocolate eggs and a sifting of cocoa. Serve with extra chocolate sauce.
