Little Appetites #1 Chocolate Fridge Cake

Hi lovely people, today proves to be both a really exciting day but admittedly I'm wetting my knickers a little for the launch of our brand new linky...Little Appetites! Myself and Stephanie at Raising Emily are hosting together as we have always had similar interests in baking/cooking with our young children. We wanted to bring everyone else into our world so thus forth we have decided it was time to create Little Appetites. A place to share food inspiration with other families, spend time with your kids, and create those precious memories that last forever.

Each week on a Friday from 6.30am we will be live. All rules will follow below! So read until the end to find out how to join in with us. The linky closes at midnight on Monday so make sure you gets your post/videos up on time.



I decided on making this Chocolate Fridge Cake this week to start off by showing you my diet has not been going all that well, clearly by my food of choice. I thought this would be a safe food for Penelope to help me with and I didn't have to worry if she ate any of the ingredients. Speaking of which you will need...

Ingredients:
3/4 Packet of Digestive Biscuits
3 Ounces  of Sultanas
10 Sliced in Half Glazed Cherries
& 3 Extra For Decorating the Top.
1 Cup of Drinking Chocolate
100ml Melted Milk Chocolate to Drizzle 
Over the Top
3 Ounces Unsalted Butter
2 Ounces Salted Caramel Pieces
4 Ounces Golden Syrup

You should have nearly all the items in your cupboards anyway I think, so hopefully not too many runs to the shops! I tried to make it easy.

Equipment:
Whisk
Spatulas/Wooden Spoons
Mixing Bowls x2
Saucepan
Plastic Container/Tray/Dish
Cling Film
Measuring Cups/Weighing Scales


Method:
1. Crush your digestives into a mixing bowl, but not completely into crumbs, leave a fair few the size of a 10 pence.
2. Add your cherries and sultanas, mix together.
3. To make your dressing set a saucepan of water to heat, place another mixing bowl on top to melt butter, golden syrup and finally the drinking chocolate. Stir until runny.
4. Pour dressing into dry mixture and stir well until all is covered equally. Add more digestives if mix is very wet looking and runny. It should be a sticky firm texture.
5. Line your container with cling film to prevent it sticking to it. 
6. Add your mix to the container and flatten with your spatula.
7. Place into the fridge to set for 1-2 hours. Cut into slices/squares of whichever you prefer.
8.Finally just dress your Chocolate Fridge Cake with some extra glazed cherries for decoration.
9.Store back into fridge.

Penelope was pretty delighted with her master piece and so was I, it was delicious. I love the fact you can just keep it in an air tight container in the fridge and grab it anytime.
