Chocolate Fridge cake is one of my favourite sweet treats to make. I always use this time of year as an excuse to make it as there are likely leftovers lying around from parties and gatherings. The chocolate that is a little too bitter or those last biscuits at the bottom of the biscuit tin can be transformed into something presentable and best of all yummy.
It is so easy to make and yet they look so impressive when serving to friends and family at your festive gathering (no one needs to know they take minimal effort and time to prepare!).
You will need:
-4oz/113g Plain Chocolate (or chocolate of your choice)
-4oz/11g White Chocolate
-4oz/113g Dried Cranberries (or dried fruit of your choice)
-1 Can of condensed milk
-10oz Digestive biscuits
-A small tin (I used this one)
Melt the butter and plain chocolate in a saucepan over a low heat. Crush your biscuits into a mixture of small crumbs and big chunks and mix in with your dried fruit and marshmallows. Stir this into your melted butter and chocolate and add your tin of condensed milk. Mix thoroughly until everything is covered in chocolatey goodness.
Line a tin with greaseproof paper. Flatten your chocolate mixture in the tin, cover with cling film and pop it into the fridge for a few hours or overnight to harden. Once it has hardened melt your white chocolate and spread it over, sprinkling some of dried cranberries on top. Allow to it harden in the fridge for another hour or so. Cut into small squares and serve.
From chocolate and biscuits to dried fruit and nuts, you can add almost anything to it. These different ingredients add great texture (I love a good crunch) and look so interesting when cut up into little squares. To make it even more festive you could roughly chop a candy cane and sprinkle over the chocolate topping.

N.B - Sainsbury's very kindly sent me some vouchers to create a recipe that uses up leftover chocolate. Thank you Sainsbury's!
