Simple chocolate digestive fridge cake

Next up on the bakes we are trying from out top 20 easy bakes for kids post is, the simple chocolate digestive fridge cake. This one is not strictly baking, all you need are 4 ingredients and a fridge. A bowl and a spoon, plus a way to melt some chocolate and you are good to go.

Ingredients

  • 200g chocolate (any you like, we used Galaxy)
  • 225g Digestive biscuits (crushed)
  • 125g butter
  • 2 tablespoons of Golden Syrup
Ingredients

Method

Melt the butter and golden syrup in a pan. Add the crushed digestive biscuits and mix. Break the chocolate up and add to the pan. Mix as the chocolate melts. Once it is all mixed together, add to a lined cake tin and put in the fridge.

Mixture before going in fridge

After an hour or 2 the mixture should be set, and ready to take out of the fridge. Take the cake out of the tin, and cut into squares/rectangles.

the finished cakes

This is one of my absolute favourite treats, these ones tasted so good. Then considering how easy they are to make, for me nothing beats them. Simple chocolate digestive fridge cake, easy to make and taste great. If you’ve never tried this before, you need to give them a go. They probably aren’t good for the calorie count, but as an occasional treat, they are lovely!

If you haven’t checked out our top 20 bakes for kids post, you can do so by clicking this link. There is a wide variety on there, and this one if possibly my favourite.

    Oooh this sounds fab and SO EASY. I’m not very good at baking at all, so the easier the better in my opinion!

    I have never heard of fridge cake but anything with chocolate and biscuits is delicious and I love how easy this is! Also something I would not have to let cool, so I could dive in and enjoy it sooner then a cake or cookies. 🙂

    I made it once where we poured the melted chocolate on top of the biscuit base, so it was like a giant chocolate digestive.
