In the kitchen:: chocolate freezer cake


If you can believe it, we are still ploughing through sweets and chocolates from Christmas. I know, we've had Easter (and more chocolate) but I don't know about anyone else but I find eating Quality Street after Christmas just isn't the same as eating them in the months leading up to the big day. My feelings on this has lead to a half-full tub of sweets. My answer to it? Chocolate freezer cake.


You will need:

:: 200g plain dark chocolate, broken into squares
:: 100g butter
:: 397g can condensed milk
:: 200g digestive biscuits
:: 300g assorted chocolates, i.e. those pesky Quality Streets.

What you need to do:

:: Put the chocolate and butter in a saucepan and melt over a very low heat; stirring until smooth.
:: Remove from the hob and stir in the condensed milk until well combined.
:: Pour into a large mixing bowl and leave to cool for at least 20 minutes (to stop your chocolates from melting).
:: Break the biscuits into small chunks and add to the chocolate mixture.
:: Add your selection of chocolates to the bowl. I went with the brown toffee ones, pink fudge, Mars bars and a few Milky Way pieces that were in the sweets tins. I also had some marshmallows which I added, because marshmallows- hello sugary, fluffy goodness.
:: Mix altogether and pour into a tin lined with non-stick baking paper.
:: Cover with cling-film and pop into the freezer for 1-2 hours or until very firm.


It's a no brainer to tell you how simple this was to make. It can also stay in your freezer for up to 3 months; I doubt it will last even close to that long but it does mean we don't have to eat it every day as it is pretty rich and sweet!
