It’s highly likely that everyone’s supply of Easter chocolate is now exhausted – so to satisfy people's sweet cravings, a retailer has shared a recipe for what may be the ultimate lockdown treat.

B&M is showing home cooks how to make a giant Crunchie bar big enough to feed 12 people – and it only requires four ingredients.

All of the elements are extremely easy to find: 400g sugar, 400g golden syrup, six teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda, and 900g of milk chocolate.

It takes about three hours to make in total, in a silicone loaf tray.

The steps detailed on the B&M website are as follows:

- Melt the chocolate over a pan of boiling water and line the silicone loaf tray with it. Once the edges are lined chill until set.

- Add golden syrup and sugar to a pan and heat on medium for three minutes.

- Take the mixture off the heat and stir in the bicarbonate of soda. Quickly pour this into the chocolate silicone tray and chill until set.

The centre of a Cadbury's Crunchie is essentially cinder or honeycomb toffee, formed from a reaction between the soda and the sugary mixture needed to make it. The bars were launched by J. S. Fry & Sons in 1929.
