I need a pudding that will please small children!

Refrigerator CakeSmall children coming to visit – no proper food in the house (and by that I mean disgustingly sweet and full of things that we wouldn’t normally want them to eat!).  Must do some cooking.   I had a whole heap of half finished packets of naughty things and I thought that they would be put to good use in this Refrigerator Cake.

You will need: 170g crushed biscuits (I used chocolate sandwich biscuits – the more chocolate the better really!), 60g mini marshmallows, 175g of any combination of mixed fruit/ glace cherries. candied peel etc, 60g golden syrup, 100g butter and 190g dark chocolate.

Grease and line a 20cm square baking tray and clear a space in the fridge.  Place the golden syrup, butter and dark chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water and stir gently until all the chocolate has melted.  Put all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix with the heated mixture.  Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tray and place in the fridge for at least 3 hours to set.   Remove from the fridge 20 minutes before serving.

Variations – you could add nuts (I didn’t do this as I was feeding under threes).

Very well received by very messy children – definitely needed the baby wipes afterwards!


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Leave a comment, I read each and every one!
