Let me just start off by saying HAPPY EASTER! I hope you all managed to catch up with some loved ones this bank holiday, we had stunning weather in Cardiff which made it easy to do some garden meet ups, so we managed to see both my sister's and their families which was just so lovely. I don't know about you but I am feeling a little unsettled and impatient about life just getting back to normal, I'm sure you're all the same. I am holding on to the fact that every day that passes is another day closer to normality.
So Easter fridge cake this is similar to a rocky road and to be honest can be made with absolutely anything you fancy at anytime of the year, it's a great one to do with the kids because it doesn't require baking and you can chuck whatever you have spare in, so it's pretty hassle free and requires very little planning. This is definitely one to pin and whip out when the arguing begins or when you want to tempt them away from their screens for 10 mins.
200 grams of butter
3 tablespoons of golden syrup
400g of Chocolate can use anything you have available dark works too.
Then literally anything you have in the cupboard, we used
Smarties mini eggs
Milky bar eggs
Mini cream eggs
But there are no rules, you can use nuts, dried fruit, any chocolate bars, biscuits or any left over Easter eggs.
Prepare a cake tin or baking pan by lining it with greaseproof baking paper.
Break up the chocolate and place butter, syrup and chocolate into a sauce pan on a low heat and gently heat until melted stir continuously being careful to make sure the chocolate doesn't burn.
when the ingredients are all melted and well combined take your pan off the heat and allow to cool slightly for 10 minutes or so. While your chocolate mixture cools break up or chop your other ingredients into small pieces.
Once your mixture is cool enough, add the rest of your yummy ingredients into the pan and stir well, you want all your goodies to be completely covered by the chocolate mixture.
When you are happy with your mixture simply empty it into the prepared cake tin makes sure to push it into all corners. Then place in the fridge for about 4 hours or until solid, then all you have to do is remove from fridge and cut into small bite sized squares and enjoy. It really is that easy!
I hope you enjoy the recipe, if you do have a go I would love to be tagged on Instagram @thehappysoak
