Chocolate Munchie Cake

As a child my mum used to make this cake and it was my brother’s favourite. It’s great if you have leftover ingredients from your Christmas fruit cake in your pantry. It’s quick and easy to make and although it’s not the most attractive looking it tastes really great. Added to this there’s no baking and you can do it well ahead of time.

We took the munchie cake round to friends for a BBQ and had it with some vanilla ice cream. They thoroughly enjoyed it and asked me to make it again so it definitely went down a storm!
