Chocolate Fridge Cake in Se7en Steps…

May 19th, 2009 · 28 Comments

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:

DSC01436

  • 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!

Bon Apetito!

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

    Hi S, You may not forgive me for posting these!!!

    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.

    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.

    hey, um i live in pakistan, and i wanted to know what the syrup is =/

  • 13 se7en // Sep 1, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    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!!!

  • 14 Maham Bano // Sep 2, 2010 at 12:30 pm

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

  • 15 se7en // Sep 2, 2010 at 3:49 pm

    Hay Maham Bano… I am sure you can use any biscuits you like!!! Let me know how they turn out!!!

    I have made this cake so many times in the last 2 weeks, so yum, so easy, and so child friendly. I thought i would share a kiwi recipe with you which is just as easy to make and you and your family might enjoy.
