Chocolate Fridge Cake

Saturday, 22 March 2008

Okay, I know, it's another sweet dish but at the moment, with all the stress of university, it's all that's keeping me sane.

This one was pretty simple to be honest. Anyone who hasn't had a chocolate fridge cake is relaly missing out. This no-bake treat is one of the easiest things to make and packs a really yummy chocolate hit and has lots of goodies inside to keep it interesting.

I'll get straight on with the recipe...

250g Digestive biscuits
200g Dark chocolate
100g Butter
100g Golden Syrup

A handful each of;
Marshmallows, chopped
Glacé cherries, chopped

We also had a secret ingredient of a little bit of finely chopped up lime flesh. You can basically add anything you like to the base of biscuits, chocolate, butter and syrup. Experiment with whatever you have and whatever you like!


Grease and line a 1lb loaf tin with cling film and set aside (make sure the cling film hangs over the edges a little).

Melt the chocolate, butter and syrup in a double boiler (a glass bowl over a saucepan with a little simmering water in it will do fine) stiring gently.
Crush the biscuits up. I use a rolling pin and a big bowl or sandwich bag. I wouldn't however, use a food processor as you need to maintain a little bit of crunch.

Add all your yummy additions to the biscuits and pour the chocolate mixture over.

Stir gently, but thoroughly to ensure everything is coated with the chocolate.

Pour the mixture into the tin and pack down firmly, wrap the over hanging clingfilm over the top and leave in the fridge to set. Give it a couple of hours at least.

Turn the cake out onto a plate and slice.

That's really all there is to it but it's delicious.
