Chocolate Fridge Cake

A quick and easy recipe for a Festive Fridge Cake, one for the chocolate lovers!

As I mentioned in a previous post I am an flavour ambassador for Aero who are launching a brand new bar of Aero in the spring. It is however in your hands which one will make it on the shelves. At the moment, with a slightly smug smile, as I am representing white chocolate, I can say that it is in first place at the. However ,voting doesn’t end until this Friday so anything could still happen.

Sneak peak

I was very lucky to have had a sneak peak/taste of the proposed new flavours and I know I shouldn’t say it, but to put a spanner in the works and just between us sshhhh…Strawberry is by far my favourite, white chocolate in second place, cappuccino in third and lemon doesn’t do it for me so is in fourth place. Strawberry is going to need a fair few votes to be with in with a chance…go on vote , it is really good!

new aero flavours

I have used the white chocolate aero bar to make a festive chocolate fridge cake, obviously it is not in the shops but this would work just as well with the mint, or even the orange flavour aero.

I have made this gluten free but substitute the biscuits/chocolate to suit your needs.
Author: cherished by me
Recipe type: Cake, biscuit, treats
Serves: 15
  • 175g digestive biscuits
  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 150g milk chocolate
  • 100g butter
  • 150g golden syrup
  • 75g glace cherries, halved
  • 50g dried cranberries
  • 100g pistachios
  • 100g Aero chocolate broken into cubes
  1. Line a 20cm/8inch square tine with cling film or foil. Leave enough overhang to enable you to life the fridge cake out once it has chilled.
  2. Crush the digestives in a bag with a rolling pin.
  3. Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup slowly in bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir every so often and remove from the heat once melted.
  4. Stir in the digestive biscuits, cherries, cranberries and pistachios until well mixed.
  5. Gently stir in the Aero chocolate cubes.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and level off.
  7. Leave to chill in the fridge for at least one hour.
  8. Remove from the tin and cut into fingers or squares.

I have used Aero white chocolate which isn’t available (yet or perhaps never) but this would work just as well with Aero mint or orange too.For a really decadent finish, before chilling the fridge cake sprinkle the top with more pistachios, cherries and cranberries for a lovely colourful jewelled finish.

Now, don’t forget to vote!

  2. I’m keeping fingers crossed for white chocolate! This looks very similar to a Christmas fridge cake I make, which reminds me I really need to get into the kitchen as I’ve been planning to make it for months but have run out of time.
