Makes 12 to 16 pieces

1 packet of round wine biscuits
80g walnuts, roughly chopped
80g dried apricots, roughly chopped
120g butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup Dutch cocoa
2 eggs

Icing
125g dark chocolate, chopped
1 Tbs rum
50g butter

1 Grease a 20 cm slice tin. Break the biscuits into small pieces or roughly crush with a rolling pin. Put into a mixing bowl with the walnuts and apricots.

2 Melt the butter with the sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Mix in the cocoa and stir until smooth. Let cool.

3 Lightly beat the eggs and stir into the mixture, combining thoroughly. Press into the prepared tin and chill.

4 To make the icing: put the chocolate, rum and butter into a bowl over simmering water and stir until melted. Pour over the slice and return to the fridge to set before slicing into squares.
