Mini Eggs Fridge Cake

In my Easter chocolate rankings, Mini Eggs sit right up there with the Lindt Gold Bunny. (Cadbury Creme Eggs, if you were wondering, are right at the bottom. I just can’t stand them.) Two for me, one for you; that’s my approach to sharing a bag of these beauties. I’ve made a few batches of fridge cake in recent months – it’s an easy-peasy bake, with very little washing up involved (win-win) – and decided to chuck a bag of Mini Eggs in last time for an Easter-y treat. Happy Easter!

Method:

  1. Line an 8” cake tin with foil.
  2. Put the digestives into a food bag and crush with a rolling pin. Set aside.
  3. Melt the chocolate, margarine and golden syrup together in a large bowl over a pan of boiling water.
  4. Once melted, set aside ¼ of the mixture in a small bowl.
  5. Tip the crushed digestives into the large bowl. Add the Mini Eggs (to the bowl, not your mouth, tempting though that may be…)
  6. Pour the mixture into the lined cake tin. Smooth the surface with the back of a spoon.
  7. Take the chocolate mixture that you set aside earlier, and spread this on top. Press a few more Mini Eggs on top to decorate.
  8. Leave in the fridge for 1-2 hours to set.
