Usually I buy flapjacks or other assorted cakes not all the time but on occasion as a treat but more and more recently I have been making my own cakes and there assorted tray bakes. And a fridge cake in particular is great to make with children as it doesn't require any baking. The only question is one square or two ? where do you stop as it quite addictive making you nibble furiously. You can use any combination of chocolate but milk chocolate on its own may be too sweet, I 've yet to meet a fridge cake I didn't take to. And in a nostalgic twist to your school days why not add rice crisps instead of digestive and for the ultimate adult edition add booze.
- 250g/8oz digestive biscuits
- 300g/10z of chocolate (I did an equal milk and a dash of dark that was lurking in my cupboard.)
- 100g/3½oz unsalted butter
- 150g/5oz golden syrup (though certainly reduce according to taste)
- 100g/3½oz mini marshmallows.
- A punnet to strawberries stalks removed and chopped ( save for topping )
Use cling film to line a square shaped tin, a brownie tin is ideal for this.
- Place the biscuits in a bag and tie then furiously bash.
- Melt chocolate, butter and golden syrup together in a heatproof pool over a ban Marie stirring occasionally.
- Take the bowl from the heat and this is where you add your ingredients for this recipe it contains the biscuits and mini marshmallows.
Spoon the mixture into the tin. Level the surface by pressing it down with the back of a spoon.Press the chopped strawberries into the mixture.
- Leave to cool, then put the chocolate mixture in the fridge for 1-2 hours to set.
Turn out the cake and peel off the cling film. Cut the cake into 12 squares and enjoy!
Serve with cream or eat with your fingers or go posh and eat with a cake fork.
