I remember my aunt melting down sugar in a steel soup ladel until it was a brown colour and using it in stews. . she said it was similar to golden syrup . .

have you got treacle or apple syrup, or malt barley syrup - I often use mart barley syrup in place of golden syrup. Treacle will give a stronger flavour but it is still quite nice.

Or maple syrup if you have some

Thank you so much for replies, I will remember them, I was getting desperate so I ended up making Elsies fingers and I will cover with chocolate icing.

Or honey would do

Unless you haven't got any golden syrup - I would use it as its what keeps chocolate cake moist...
