Steps to Make Fridge Cake
Place the biscuits in a plastic bag and bash them with a rolling pin. Don’t break them too finely, though. You need chunks still, not dust.
Melt the butter, chocolate, and syrup in a bowl over a saucepan of hot water. Stir together to make a shiny mixture. Remove from the heat.
When the bowl is cool to touch, stir in the biscuits, raisins, and almonds. Make sure all the ingredients are mixed really well. Now, line the tin with baking parchment.
Use a masher to press the mixture into the tin and put in the fridge to harden. Cut into 24 pieces. If you like, freeze some in an airtight container and eat within a few months.
For a crackling surprise, add 50g (13⁄4 oz) of popping candy after step 3. Don’t measure it out until the moment you need it or all the “popping-ness” will go.
