Those of you with a keen eye or a memory an elephant would be proud of may recognise this chocolatey offering. Yup, this is one from the archives I thought was due another airing. This is my famous-amongst-friends fridge cake; a recipe I pinched from my auntie when I was a teen and have honed and tweaked ever since. The best thing? You can make this in ten minutes flat, and after popping in the fridge over night - no cooking required - it is ready to be enjoyed.
You will need
4oz plain chocolate
(if you can't find plain, use half milk and half dark good-quality chocolate)
1 tin condensed milk
10oz digestive biscuits
To make, pop your butter and chocolate in a pan on a very low heat (or in a bain marie) and melt together. In a mixing bowl start crushing the digestives with a rolling pin until you have a mixture of breadcrumb-like size and larger chunks of biscuit. To the biscuits, add the raisins, condensed milk and melted chocolate mixture. Line a square dish (I use this one) with greaseproof paper and pour in the mixture. Top with sprinkles, glacé cherries, marshmallows or chocolate chips if you fancy. Leave for a few hours to set in the fridge - its best if you can leave overnight. Chop into bite-sized chunks and enjoy!
