At our recent Jubilee celebrations a tin of the most scrumptious chocolate fridge cake appeared on the Jubilee tea table. It was truly divine, chocolatey, biscuity heaven. Of course I asked around but no one seemed to know who had made this little bit of heaven. I decided that I needed this recipe in my life so put out an email to the village, after a few non starters the lovely Becky stepped forward and owned up to producing the amazing treat. Thankfully she agreed to share her recipe with me so I could make it and share it here. The recipe originated from Lorraine Pascal's Home cooking made easy. I have no experience of this book, but after making these I may be tempted to add it to my groaning recipe book shelf!
I will admit I tweaked the recipe slightly by adding raisins to the mixture because I like them with chocolate. Be warned this is very rich and not one for dieting!!!
Chocolate Fridge Cake
400g of good quality chocolate, I used 200g each of dark and milk, broken into pieces
2 dollops of golden syrup
Melt the butter over a low heat then add the chocolate and syrup. Stir until all is melted. Take off the heat, add the biscuits and maltesers until evenly mixed. Put into a lined brownie tin, 20cm square, I used a silicone tin which didn't need lining, and place in the fridge for couple of hours or until set. Remove from the tin and cut into 18 squares.
