Chocolate Ginger Fridge Cake Bites

No Bake Chocolate Cake

Looking for a no bake, little skill, super easy fridge cake to make? Then how about my latest recipe for Chocolate and Ginger Fridge Cake Bites? This tray bake really does live up to all three claims and is the perfect mid morning treat with a cup of tea or coffee (or whatever floats your boat). I find that you don’t often see chocolate and ginger together and the two flavours paired together are really underrated…in short, they’re delicious! It’s a very warming, spicy take on chocolate…mmm.

To make your own, you’ll need:

  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 100g butter
  • 4 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 225g ginger biscuits

You’ll also need:

  • Medium saucepan
  • Sealable bag
  • Rolling pin
  • 23cm square cake tin
  • Cling film
  • Measuring scales
  • Spoon
  • Spatula

The technical bit:

  1. Break up 160g of your ginger biscuits to a crumb in a bowl (you can do this by hand…but it is more fun to put them into a sealed bag and bash them (gently) with a rolling pin. Put them to one side for now
  2. Break your remaining biscuits into smaller pieces but not completely crush them to a crumb
  3. Line your cake tin with cling film (you don’t have to, put it makes it so much easier to lift out your tray bake if you do)
  4. Put the butter, chocolate and golden syrup into a saucepan and gently heat on the hob (lowest heat), stirring continuously until they have melted
  5. Add your crushed biscuit crumb and stir well
  6. Add your broken biscuit pieces and stir in (gently so you don’t crush them any more) quickly before the chocolate melts too much
  7. Transfer to the cake tin, gently pressing down and into the corners to fill any gaps – I found using a silicone spatula very helpful for this
  8. Put in the fridge until it has fully set. I generally make mine the night before so I leave them in the fridge overnight – if you’re making them to eat on the same day (and why wouldn’t you?!) I would leave it in the fridge for 3 hours +
  9. Remove your tray bake from the fridge and cut into small squares

Why not parcel some of the tray bake pieces into a presentation bag and give them as a little gift to someone? It will make their day!
