Chocolate Indulgence “Refrigerator” Cake
Totally full of chocolate, totally not for the health conscious!
A few weeks ago, my husband’s workplace had a bake sale to raise money for a colleague who is battling a life-threatening condition, and everyone brought in cakes to sell!
They managed to raise a great amount just by selling some yummy cakes and bakes
My husband doesn’t bake, but I do! I made a few things for him to take, and they sold like hot-cakes! (pun intended)
However one of the items was the opposite of a hot cake… what I call “Refrigerator Cake”
This is such a simple thing to make, it doesn’t take long to do, but I’ll give you fair warning now, this is:
a) Very moreish
b) NOT low-fat or low-calorie!
I mean look at this melted chocolate!
This is one of those sit down with a cuppa cake/bar/bites – if you do make this for consumption at home, don’t expect it to last long (but I do recommend cutting it up into small bites)
Also, the great thing about this cake is, aside from the base ingredients, you really can add / subtract as many ingredients as you like…. hate raisins? no problem, take them out!
you can also use any of the following (or anything you think of!)
- Nuts (pecans / walnuts / hazelnuts) – all great with chocolate (I didn’t put any in this recipe, as it was going to a bake sale, so no risk of allergies)
- Cut up sweets (like a mars bar / twix)
- Chocolate Chips
So Indulgent, ideal with a cuppa
– 250g Digestive Biscuits
– 125g Milk Chocolate
– 125g Butter
– Malteasers (or any chocolate sweet of choice)
– 1 large tray lined with either baking paper or cling film
- Place a bowl over a pan of boiled water (making sure that the bowl does not touch the water)
- Break up the chocolate into the bowl and melt it.
- Add the butter to the melted chocolate, and mix together.
- While that is melting, take 250g of digestive biscuits, place into a Ziploc bag, and crush with a rolling-pin until they resemble breadcrumbs
- Add the crushed biscuits into the melted chocolate and mix together.
- Once mixed, add your additional ingredients… add one at a time and keep mixing
- After all your ingredients are mixed together, put into the large tray, cover with cling film / foil and refrigerate, This could take 1-2 hours.
- Once solidified, cut into approx 2″ squares.
- These can be kept in an airtight container, either in/out of the fridge. If they start to melt, put them back in to firm up.
I hope you have fun making these! Let me know what fun things you added!
