Chocolate Today?

Love is on its way. And while we are waiting, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to sweeten our expectations. This Chocolate Day, how are you going to indulge your better half? Place a heart shaped box secretly into his or her closet or you two could finally take a day off and go for that much needed chocolate spa treatment. But if you don’t have plans yet here’s what you will need for the Chocolate Fridge Cake:

  • 1 large packet of your favorite biscuits
  • 3 tablespoons of golden syrup
  • 150g of chocolate (plain, milk, white or orange)
  • 150g of butter
  • A handful of dried fruits, if you like
  •  Strawberries
  1. Line a shallow square tin with some plastic wrap.
  2. Crush the biscuits and add the dried fruits if you’re using them.
  3. Melt the butter, the golden syrup and the chocolate in a double saucepan.
  4. Pour this chocolate sauce over the crushed biscuits and mix well.
  5. Place the mixture into the lined tin and level the top using a spoon.
  6. Put the mixture into the fridge for at least 3 hours.
  7. Turn the cake out onto a chopping board and remove the plastic wrap.
  8. Cut the cake into shapes of your choice (We’d say go with hearts if you’re good at it).
  9. Serve it on a clean white plate with two strawberries at the side.
  10. And ladies, wear the sparkle tonight.

Happy Chocolate Day!
