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!

I used:

  • Malteasers
  • Marshmallows
  • Raisins

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



  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

So Indulgent, ideal with a cuppa

Ingredients


Base Ingredients
– 250g Digestive Biscuits
– 125g Milk Chocolate
– 125g Butter
Extras:
– Raisins
– Marshmallows
– Malteasers (or any chocolate sweet of choice)

– 1 large tray lined with either baking paper or cling film

Directions

  1. Place a bowl over a pan of boiled water (making sure that the bowl does not touch the water)
  2. Break up the chocolate into the bowl and melt it.
  3. Add the butter to the melted chocolate, and mix together.
  4. While that is melting, take 250g of digestive biscuits, place into a Ziploc bag, and crush with a rolling-pin until they resemble breadcrumbs
  5. Add the crushed biscuits into the melted chocolate and mix together.
  6. Once mixed, add your additional ingredients…
  7. add one at a time and keep mixing
  8. 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.
  9. Once solidified, cut into approx 2″ squares.
  10. 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!
