This recipe was introduced to the Parlour in celebration of the royal wedding of William and Catherine, after I learnt that chocolate fridge cake is William’s favourite dessert and was to be served at the wedding breakfast. It has been so popular amongst our customers that this chocolate cake has earnt a spot in this book.

Method

  1. Line the cake tin or baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Place the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a large plastic bowl and gently melt in the microwave at a medium heat. Alternatively, place the ingredients in a saucepan and gently melt, stirring occasionally, until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the broken biscuits with the chopped and crushed nuts and the marshmallows. Add to the chocolate mixture and stir until well combined.
  4. Pour the cake mixture into the prepared tin or tray, then spread it evenly using a rubber spatula. Chill in the fridge until firm and set. Cut into bars of approximately 2.5cm thick.
