Easter caramel and malteser fridge cake
Lavender and Lovage with the idea for the Easter eggs in the middle from BBC Good Food.
It required a trip to the large Sainsburys supermarket at Cameron Toll. It is just as well we didn't have too many trips there as it is a place of many temptations.

Easter Caramel and Malteser Fridge Cake
Adapted from Lavender and Lovage
Serves a crowd (10-12)
200g caramel chocolate
100g milk chocolate
100g daim chocolate
3 dessertspoons golden syrup
125g (7) chocolate digestives
1 x 121g bag of Maltesers
1 cup of rice bubbles
100g milk chocolate
3 dessertspoons milk
A few large or medium easter eggs in wrappers
A bag of small easter eggs in wrappers
A bag of mini easter eggs
Line a ring tin or bundt tin with two layers of clingfilm. If you don't have either tin, you can use a bowl or saucepan with a smaller bowl in the middle.
Melt chocolates, butter and golden syrup, preferably together in a saucepan over the stovetop or melt chocolate in small amounts in a microwave and the mix together. Add digestives, Maltesers and rice bubbles and mix to combine. Spoon into the prepared tin and press down. Cover with cliingfilm. Chill in fridge a few hours.
Unwrap clingfilm from bottom of tin. Remove from tin and flip onto a serving platter (unwrapped side down). Unwrap remaining clingfilm. Mix chocolate and milk to make the chocolate drizzle and carefully drizzle over the top so it runs down the sides. Arrange easter eggs inside ring and scatter mini eggs around the top of the ring on the drizzle.
Ours was kept in the fridge over two nights and then brought out on the morning of the lunch to come to room temperature. We kept it for another couple of days at room temperature.
NOTES: other chocolates or biscuits can be used, depending on preference and availability. this cake would also work for other celebrations or seasonal occasions using other decorations. or it could just work as a slice cut into squares. It could be adapted into a vegan cake with vegan chocolates, margarine and biscuits.
