The Hummingbird Bakery’s choccy fridge cake bars are a crunchy treat that don’t need baking! Make them in advance and store in the fridge for a sugar fix

Ingredients

  • 400g unsalted butter
  • 200ml golden syrup
  • 100g cocoa powder
  • 800g digestive biscuits, broken into small chunks
  • 200g raisins
  • 33 x 23 x 5-cm baking tray, lined with greaseproof paper

Method

  • Put the butter, golden syrup and cocoa powder in a large saucepan over medium heat and heat until melted and smooth, stirring occasionally.

  • Put the biscuit chunks and raisins in a large bowl and pour in the chocolate mixture. Mix with a wooden spoon until everything is well mixed and the biscuits and raisins are evenly dispersed.

  • Press this mixture into the prepared baking tray, using a tablespoon to flatten and compress it. Cover with a sheet of greaseproof paper, then a tray covered in jam jars or tins to apply pressure on the cake and compress it even more.

  • Leave to cool completely, then refrigerate for a couple of hours, or overnight if possible.
