No Bake Chocolate Fridge Cake

If anyone watched Great British Bake Off last year you will probably remember the lovely Holly Bell who made it to the final. She writes a brilliant and very witty blog, Recipes From a Normal Mum, which has loads of great recipes. The thing I love about Holly is that she really is a 'Normal Mum' (of two little boys) but she achieves great things, which is inspiring to all other 'Normal Mums' like me!

This No Bake Chocolate Fridge Cake is taken from her blog, but it's originally from a book called Scrumptious which is by the charity Diverse Abilities Plus. If you fancy getting your hands on a great baking book and helping charity, then get your hands on a copy!

No Bake Chocolate Fridge Cake: Makes 25 squares

Time:  15 mins hands on time + 4 hours cooling

Cost:  17p per serving*

Calories:  216 per serving*

*based 25 servings

  • 300g plain chocolate
  • 75g unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 400g tin condensed milk
  • 175g sultanas
  • 125g mini marshmallows
  • 200g biscuits (I used digestive)
  1. Line a tray with greaseproof paper. (Check it fits in your fridge first).
  2. Put the chocolate, butter, condensed milk and syrup in a pan over a low heat. Stir until all the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth and well combined. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for about 5 minutes.
  3. Crunch up the biscuits with your hands and add to the pan along with the sultanas and marshmallows. Stir until everything is coated in chocolate.
  4. Pour into the lined tray and spread evenly with the back of a spoon.
  5. Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours. (I sped up this process by placing the cake in the freezer for a short time). Use the greaseproof paper to lift the chilled cake out of the tin. Cut into squares and enjoy!
