There really is nothing quite like a chocolate fridge cake or real Rocky Road, a no bake treat that is so easy to make with the kids at any time of the year.

This chocolate Easter fridge cake couldn’t be simpler and it’s a treat that the whole family will enjoy. Perfect as part of a buffet spread, as a sweet treat in the afternoon or for dessert, it can be enjoyed at any time and for any occasion.

What chocolate do I need for this fridge cake recipe?

For this recipe we use standard bars of milk and dark chocolate but this could also be a great way to use up Easter egg chocolate! Broken up leftover Easter eggs would work just as well when melted down.

To make this recipe Easter themed we used Cadburys Mini Eggs in the mixture and to decorate but you could instead use Cadbury Creme Eggs for a Creme Egg Rocky Road or any other seasonal Easter chocolate eggs that you enjoy.

You could also use different biscuits if you wanted – malted milk biscuits or Rich Tea biscuits work well. And a lot of people add dried fruit or glace cherries to fridge cakes as well. Feel free to experiment with what you have in the cupboards and see what works for you!

This Mini Egg Fridge Cake keeps well in the fridge in an airtight container for a week – but it never lasts that long! It’s one of our favourite no cook tray bakes and a great Mini Egg recipe to enjoy throughout the spring.

I’m planning a whole host of no bake Easter treats to add to my collection and you can see all our Easter recipes to date here. If you’re looking for other Easter recipes to try give our Creme Egg Rice Krispie Cakes or Rice Krispie Mini Egg Nests a try?

What equipment do you need to make Rocky Road?

Rocky Road doesn’t need anything special to make it, and you probably already have everything you need at home, but this is the equipment we use:

Once you’ve got everything you need to make the Rocky Road you can just keep making it again and again – in so many different flavours too!
