Preheat oven to 170°C.

Mix all of the dry ingredients together. Melt the butter and add the vanilla essence. Stir in the dry ingredients.

Press into a greased and lined 25 x 25cm square tin and press down with the back of a spoon. Use a fork to prick the surface.

Bake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Mix the icing sugar, cocoa and butter together. Add enough hot water to make a spreadable icing. Pour over the crunchies while they are still warm.

Leave until almost set, then cut into bars. Sprinkle with chocolate sweets. Leave to set completely. Store in an airtight container.
