  • 100g butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
  • 100g Asda Digestive Biscuits
  • 100g ginger nut biscuits
  • 400g Asda White Chocolate, broken into squares
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 600ml pot Asda Double Cream
  • 454g pack Asda Strawberries
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Butter the sides of a 24cm loose-based cake tin and line the base with baking paper. Crush the biscuit and mix with the butter.

  • Put in the tin and spread evenly, pressing down firmly with back of a large metal spoon. Bake for 10 minutes. Leave to cool.

  • Put the chocolate in a large heatproof bowl with the golden syrup, orange juice and about a quarter of the cream. Stand the bowl over a large pan of simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl doesn’t touch the water.

  • Leave for 2 minutes, then turn off the heat. Stir until the chocolate has melted and combined with the other liquids. If necessary turn the heat back on until simmering again – take care not to overheat the chocolate or it will form a lump and be unusable. Leave until cool but still liquid.

  • In a separate bowl, whip the rest of the cream until it just starts to hold its shape. Fold into the chocolate and pour onto the biscuit base.

  • Chill for at least 3 hours. Wash and halve the strawberries and pile some in the centre of the torte. Serve the rest separately.
