Put the butter, drinking chocolate and syrup in a pan over a low heat and stir until the butter melts.
Break biscuits up by hand into a bowl and mix in the sultanas. Pour in the hot melted butter mixture and stir well.
Spoon into the tin, spread evenly and press it down level with the back of the spoon.
Break the chocolate into chunks into a bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir occasionally to help it melt. Spread it over the biscuit mixture in the tin, then sprinkle the nuts and cherries on top. Chill in the fridge to set and cut into bars when you want to serve it.
If you don't have baking parchment you could use cling film or foil instead, to line your tin.
