Chocolate Malteser Biscuit Fridge Cake


And then they were gone!  Literally, these will go in a flash, so make sure you grab yourself a slice before you let the kids or anyone else get at it!

The recipe came from a book which I bought down the market for about 50p so an absolute bargain!  It’s called ‘Simply Cadbury’s Chocolate’ by Joanna Farrow, and you can find the original recipe on Page 72 – naturally I adapted it because that’s what I do.


  • 2 bars of Cadbury’s milk chocolate – 200 gram bars
  • 2-3 tablespoons of milk
  • 1.5 packets of Cadbury’s chocolate digestives (you can never have enough chocolate)
  • 125 grams of melted butter, we like Lurpak
  • 6-8 tablespoons of syrup
  • As many Maltesers as you like


I tend to get all my bits ready so I can throw them all in when the time is right, so:

  1. Grease and line your cake tin – I just use a pyrex glass and it works just fine – I tend to put some margarine around the bottom so that they baking paper sticks
  2. Break the milk chocolate into pieces into a medium-sized saucepan and add in your milk
  3. Put the chocolate digestives in a ziplock and then grab the rolling pin and give them a good smash
  4. Melt your butter, I just nuke it in the microwave for about 30 seconds
  5. Then, melt the chocolate with the milk, when that’s done, then add in your melted butter and stir like crazy to get it all to absorb
  6. Once that’s done, then add in the syrup, then give it a good stir and add in your crushed biscuits (my husband sobbed when I broke them up!)
  7. Get as much of the chocolate all over the contents, and then add in a couple of handfuls of maltesers and stir again
  8. Then empty it all out into your tin or pyrex glass, and spread it out so it’s even, and then I decorate the top with more maltesers
  9. Whack it into the fridge and let it chill for about three hours or until you just have to eat some!
