Chocolate fridge loaf

Chocolate fridge loaf



  • 200g digestive biscuits
  • 60g pecan nuts
  • 60g macadamia nuts
  • 80g packet pistachio kernels
  • 100g glace cherries
  • 200g good-quality dark chocolate
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • icing sugar, to dust


Line a 10cm x 20cm loaf pan with plastic wrap, leaving plenty of overhang.

Place the chocolate, butter and caster sugar in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (bowl shouldn‰Ûªt touch the water). Stir occasionally until chocolate melts.

Meanwhile, break biscuits into small pieces and place in a large bowl. Add pecans, macadamias, pistachios and cherries. Add the melted chocolate mixture and spoon into loaf pan. Press down firmly. Refrigerate overnight, then turn out onto a serving platter. Sprinkle with icing sugar and cut into hefty slices.



  • Keeps well in an airtight container (in the fridge if it is still hot in your part of the world) and is even better after a few days if it lasts that long.
  • Fantastic with your morning tea or coffee!
