No-Bake Fridge Cake

Leo got Justin Fletcher's annual for Christmas and we came across a fridge cake recipe inside which looked an easy and fun thing to make with him.

Here is the finished product

I found it was pretty crumbly and broke up a lot when I tried to slice it - I don't know whether that was because we didn't crush the biscuits enough (there were some biggish pieces left in the mix because I thought it would make it a bit more interesting texture-wise) or whether I could have done with adding some more liquid to it (extra butter/chocolate). Never mind - we ended up with a really tasty fridge cake and a bowl of bits to snack on!

225g milk chocolate
125g butter
2 tbspn golden syrup
2 handfuls of raisins
small pack digestive biscuits

8" round or square tin, greased

- melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a bowl over a pan of simmering water

- crush the biscuits and put the crumbs into a bowl with the raisins

- add the chocolate mixture and mix well. Pour into the prepared tin and press down firmly.

- chill for at least a couple of hours
