Fancy Fridge Cake

Hi everyone and welcome back…

This week has been a busy one and so what better way to end it by making a different take on the classic fridge cake or rocky road. This makes a delicious and slightly healthy treat or could even be given as a present in a treat bag or box. This recipe is super easy to make and contains crunchy pistachios, buttery shortbread and juicy raspberries and blueberries drizzled in white chocolate.

Ingredients:

200g dark chocolate

50g soft spread

2tbsp golden syrup

175g shortbread, broken into small chunks

75g pistachios

150g blueberries

150g raspberries

75g white chocolate

Method:

1.Line a medium sized rectangle cake tin with greaseproof paper.

2.Measure the dark chocolate, golden syrup and soft spread into a medium sized saucepan. Heat gently until all has melted and is a smooth glossy texture. Stir throughout heating to avoid burning.
