STORY BEHIND THE CHOCOLATE FRIDGE CAKE
OUR FIRST EASTER EGG HUNT!
Oh, what fun !! We collected 23 Easter eggs of all sizes in total .. and most of them travelled back to London safely! We overloaded ourselves with treats throughout the trip that these delectable easter eggs had to shelve away for a week. So what do you do with the leftover Easter Eggs?
It all started when we visited Paris during our Easter break. When we were enjoying our lavish breakfast lazily, one of the hotel employees handed over a pamphlet about the Easter Egg Hunt for smaller children. I was equally excited as my little girl !
The weather was chilly outside and we were not clouded with our jackets, still the excitement within us was a way to high, to ignore any shivering or chillness. As we walked through the maze we found some mini eggs wrapped up in coloured papers. She was so excited to pick them up delicately. And we found a few more that she could barely hold them all in her little hands. She moved her locks and then looked at me, trying to indicate that she can’t hold them all in her palm. It was soo cute !!
We collected all kinds of chocolate Easter eggs that day… from really mini to large ones !! I carried her to pick some of the chocolates over the bushes.. and some through the tall bushes.
Did I tell you – She hates to walk on the grass/ meadows .. but she didn’t mind that day !!! Phew, that was one great experience!
IDEA BEHIND THE CHOCOLATE FRIDGE CAKE
With so many Easter Eggs at hand, we were thinking of making so many yummilicious things like brownie, cookie, cake together? But finally settled for this super easy No-bake Chocolate Fridge Cake with Condensed Milk.
We prepared a mini shopping list along with the kids and went handpicking the ingredients to the Aldi Super grocery. The whole process of picking the ingredients and making it together with kids is a fantastic holiday activity and a dessert they can be proud of.
CHOCOLATE FRIDGE CAKE INGREDIENTS
This genius no-bake cake has got all the fun ingredients one can imagine and its easily customisable.
4 Essential Ingredients to make this easy chocolate refrigerator cake are
Digestive Biscuits – Digestive Biscuits are the key to making this cake. Any store home-brand digestives should do the job.
Condensed Milk – Condensed Milk is another important ingredient. For caramel flavour, you could use Caramel Condensed milk too. Either of them works great in this no bake dessert.
Chocolate – I have used Milk Chocolate for this recipe, as my kids love them. But dark chocolate also works really well.
Butter – Unsalted Butter lends a creamy buttery flavour. So please do not skip this ingredient.
All other exciting ingredients such as Maltesers, Easter Eggs etc are customisable. How about adding some Popcorn or even marshmallows or may be dried fruits like figs or some nuts to this refrigerator quick biscuit cake recipe.
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE BISCUIT CAKE ?
Digestive Biscuit Chocolate Cake is an Eggless & Flourless Dessert that is absolutely possible to make with kids. In-fact I highly recommend making this fun kids-friendly dessert cake with them.
First and foremost step to make this eggless chocolate fridge cake is gently break the digestive biscuits and chocolates with a rolling pin. The key point to remember is not to crush them into a fine powder.
Melt the chocolate & butter using the double boiler method . Stir in the condensed milk until well combined.
Now it’s time to stir this delicious melted chocolate into the digestive biscuits & eggs mixture until coated.
Stir in any of the remaining ingredients like maltesers or any of your choice.
Carefully drop this prepared no bake chocolate biscuit cake into the lined baking tin.
Meanwhile melt the chocolate for coating using the double boiler method and carefully spoon them over the biscuit chocolate cake dessert until completely covered.
Place this prepared dessert in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours until set.
IMPORTANT TIPS TO REMEMBER TO MAKE THIS NO BAKE CHOCOLATE BISCUIT CAKE
Always gather your ingredients before you start making this chocolate fridge cake.
Use Double Boiler method to melt the chocolate.
Remember to keep the moisture away and use dry hands while handling chocolate.
It’s preferable to use a sharp knife to obtain neat slices of the cake, instead of butter knife. Let the adults do this job!
Allow the no bake refrigerator cake to set completely, before slicing.
