Crispy Chocolate Fudge Cake – Dear Bear & Beany – Baking with Children Guest Post

Dear Bear and Beany Guest Post for Baking with Children. Crispy chocolate fudge cake recipe for easy baking with kids and toddlers

I can’t even begin to tell you how nervous I was setting up this series on the blog. I wasn’t sure it would work or if anyone would be interested but immediately people were really keen to take part. Thank you so much to everyone I have already featured and to everyone who has been in touch. I really appreciate it and I get really excited every time.

This week is no exception! I love Laura’s blog Dear Bear and Beany. She has a beautiful writing style. I have been stalking following her for a while now and I can honestly say her social media and blog are well worth following!

I will let Laura introduce herself as she does it so well.

Laura’s Post:

I’m so excited to be guest posting for the lovely Kirsty and taking part in her kids and baking guest series. I love to bake and since having Alice, it is something that she has come to love as well. Let me introduce myself, I’m Laura and I blog over at Dear Bear and Beany, where I share my life with my husband and our two daughters, Alice and Holly.

Whenever I ask Alice what she would like to do at the weekend or on the school holiday, the answer is always the same ‘baking please mummy’. She loves it!

With Easter coming up I thought we would do some Easter themed baking and the best bit is, you don’t need an oven. These are quick and easy to do with the children and they will love them too. Win, Win!

I give you Crispy Chocolate Fridge Cake…

Crispy Chocolate Fudge Cake

Crispy Chocolate Fudge Cake


  • 300g dark chocolate, broken into chunks
  • 100g butter, diced
  • 140g golden syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g biscuit, roughly chopped
  • 100g sultana
  • 85g rice krispies
  • 100g mini eggs


  1. Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.
  2. Place the biscuits in a freezer bag and seal. We used digestive biscuits, but others would work just as well. Break them into chunks.
  3. Add the vanilla, biscuits, sultanas and Rice Krispies and mix well until it is all located in chocolate.
  4. Line a 20x30cm tin with baking paper and tip the mixture into the tin.
  5. Flatten it down and even it out.
  6. Press in some mini eggs (you can choose to leave these out)
  7. Place it in the fridge until it is set
  8. Once set, cut into squares and enjoy!

A nice and easy recipe to do with children and they taste really good.

Thank you Kirsty for having me to take part in your series. If you fancy coming to say Hi, you can find me on Instagram, Twitter and of course over at Dear Bear and Beany.
