Chocolate Fridge Cake in Se7en Steps…

Here is a fun, quick recipe that is easy for kids to make. You can keep it plain or add in all sorts of goodies. It’s a fabulous sort of recipe that every mother should have up her sleeve… and it doesn’t require baking! Warming, but no baking! Here is what you are aiming for:

Also it’s one of those recipes where less is more. The more you make the more you eat – really don’t make a whole lot. It may well be the death of you. Easy to remember, just 4 ingredients – all 100g. Except the syrup and 1 tablespoon of that will do.

Let’s Meet The Players:

Basic ingredients:

  • 100 g butter
  • 100 g good quality chocolate
  • 100 g marie biscuits (you may call them tea biscuits on the far side of the world)
  • 1 tablespoon syrup.

Add-ins:

These are fine to have plain. If you want to add in then I just keep adding 100g of everything! Not too much to mention…

I used glace cherries and mini-marshmallows but you can add dried fruit, nuts and raisins – all to very good effect!

Let’s play the game:

Step 1: Start with the biscuits… Pop them in a tea towel and bash them like crazy until you have biscuit crumbs.

Step 2: Organize your add-ins, chop them up a bit smaller and so on…

Step 3: Pop your chocolate, butter and syrup together into a pot.

Step 4: Gently warm the ingredients in the pot. The aim is to slowly melt them to together not to boil or even slightly bubble them.

Step 5: Take your pot off the hotplate and add in your bashed up biscuits. Mix them in and coat them thoroughly.

Step 6: If you are adding in extras then now is the time.

We added in chopped-cherries:

And baby marshmallows:

Step 7: Generously grease a baking pan… I used a bread pan. And pour your mixture into it. Spread it out and leave it in the fridge for a couple of hours to set.

Hopefully when you get back to check on it it won’t half be gone – AHEM! Cut it into chunks and only if you are very generous hearted offer it to anyone else!

  1. Hay H, I have only just rediscovered them – how could I have forgotten them!!! Frankly I think I should quietly re-forget them!

  2. Looks so easy and DELICIOUS! Keep the recipes coming please. I love easy ones – time is always short!

  3. I tried these over the weekend. My cave guy does all the shopping, but he had the flu. A simple trip for jello for the sick man turned into a grocery shopping spree- I couldn’t help myself! So with my diminished baking supplies freshened up I had pecans, choco chips, coconut, and cherries for add-ins!!! I forgot the tea biscuits though. But I figured a cookie is a biscuit is a cracker, right?? so I used saltines and it was yummy. I’m glad I took your advice and made only a tiny tiny bit- I ate it all. I didn’t even tell the kids. hehe.

  4. Yum!!! We walked to the shops to buy the ingredients so I could feel better about us eating it all later. And great to be able to involve little kids without worrying about hot ovens.

  5. Hi Maham Bano, Locally we have syrup called Golden Syrup – which is a sugar based syrup similar to honey. I have used honey in this recipe and it worked and I have used maple syrup as well… Hope that helps!!! Enjoy!!!

  6. and another question, what if i use oreos instead of marie biscuits?
    will it effect the cake in any way?
