This is a simple warming slice to take to the office and share with a cup of morning tea.

What you need

190g butter, chopped
1 cup soft brown sugar
½ cup golden syrup
1½ cups self raising flour
¼ cup CADBURY BOURNVILLE Cocoa
2 teaspoons ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ cup sour cream
2 tablespoons glace ginger, finely chopped

100g CADBURY White Baking Chocolate, broken into pieces
40g unsalted butter, chopped
125g PHILADELPHIA Spreadable Cream Cheese 
¾ cup pure icing sugar, sifted 

Make it

  2. POUR the butter and egg mixtures into a well in the centre of the dry ingredients then stir to combine. Stir through the glace ginger. Pour into a greased and paper lined 28cm x 18cm slice pan (ensure paper extends 5cm above the top of the pan).
