Chocolate fridge cake is the perfect recipe to get the kids in the kitchen and who better to devise a spot-on child-friendly recipe than Annabel Karmel!

With no need to cook, the kids can be involved in making this fridge cake from beginning to end. You can be a bit creative with the recipe and let them pack it full of their favourite little treats from broken biscuits to marshmallows and raisins - the fun part is mixing it altogether in a bowl of chocolatey delight.

Did you put your own twist on this chocolate fridge cake recipe? Let us know how in the comments section below.


Step 1

Put the biscuits in a plastic bag and bash them into pieces with a rolling pin.  


Step 2

Melt both kinds of chocolate, the butter, and golden syrup in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Stir well.


Step 3

Remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the broken biscuits, apricots, raisins, and pecans (optional).


Step 4

Line a 20 cm (8 in) shallow, square-shaped tin with clingfilm. Spoon the mix into the tin and level it by pressing down with a potato masher.


Step 5

Set the cake in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Then turn it out and peel off the Clingfilm. Cut into slices and serve.


Step 6

And there you have your finished chocolate fridge cakes.
