Make Chocolate Fridge Cake

Children and adults alike will love this delicious and simple treat. There is no baking, and no fuss, so why not give it a try?


  • 1 large packet of biscuits (rich tea, digestive or ginger)
  • 3 tablespoons of golden syrup
  • 150 grams of chocolate (plain, milk, white, etc.)
  • 150 grams of butter
  • A handful of dried fruit (currants, sultanas, raisins or chopped dried apricots) This recipe is also much better with marshmallows and bits of fudge and toffee for a sweeter taste.


  1. Line a shallow, roughly 8"x8" (20x20 cm), square tin with cling-film so that it overhangs the edges slightly.
  2. Crush the biscuits. Add the dried fruit at this point if you're using it.
  3. Melt the other ingredients in a double saucepan or a ceramic bowl over boiling water.
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture over the biscuits and mix well.
  5. Put this mixture into the lined tin. Smooth the top and press down firmly with the back of a spoon.
  6. Put the tin into the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  7. Turn the cake out onto a wooden cutting board and peel away the cling-film.
  8. Cut the cake into pieces using a sharp knife dipped in boiling water.
  9. Store in an air-tight container or enjoy straight away!


  • Always be careful when using hot water and knives. If working with children, ensure they are supervised at all times.
