Some days aren’t made for working. Or cleaning the bathroom. Or doing the things on a to do list. Some days are made for easy chocolate fridge cake.
You don’t particularly need a lot of ingredients to make this. Which works for me. We tend to keep it simple, but you could go all crazy and add in some raisins, dried apricots or nuts, depending on what takes your fancy.
Chocolate fridge cake
Adapted from BBC Food
250g/8oz crumbly biscuits (like digestives or graham crackers)
150g/5oz milk chocolate
150g/5oz dark chocolate
100g/3 1/2oz unsalted butter
150g/5oz golden syrup
1 Line a shallow, square shaped tin (about 20cm/8in) with cling film. Make sure the cling film goes over the edges.
2 Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir every once n’ a while.
3 While those are melting, put the biscuits in a plastic bag or a clean dish cloth and bash them with a rolling pin or squish them with your fingers. Guess it depends on how bad a day you’ve had.
4 When the chocolate is melted, take off the heat and add in the crumbled biscuits.
5 Pour the chocolatey-biscuity mix into the lined tin. Tap the base of the tin on the counter to level off the mixture.
6 Leave to cool, then put the tin in the fridge for an hour or so to set the mix.
7 Peel off the cling film and enjoy. Keep in the fridge if it’s a particularly hot day!
