Cadbury Cherry Ripe Bars

This recipe is the original one, using the famous and delicious Cadbury chocolate bars. It is easy to make, with the great Cadbury chocolate taste.


  • 150g butter or margarine at room temperature (I advise that you use the butter)
  • 150g caster sugar (or white if preferred)
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • 150ml milk
  • 200g grated chocolate (I advise that you use the Cadbury Cherry Ripe Bars)


  1. Preheat oven 160°C/325°F/Gas Mark
  2. Grease and line a 12-hole muffin tray with paper cases or spray with cooking oil
  3. In a large bowl, cream together butter and caster sugar until light in color (this will take around five minutes)
  4. Add eggs one at a time to the mixture and beat well after each addition.
  5. Sift together flour and cocoa powder in a separate bowl, then add to the mixture alternating with pouring milk (this will take around 15 minutes)
  6. Add chopped chocolate bars to the batter mix before dividing them into paper cases.
  7. Fill each case ¾ full, so they cook evenly and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean
  8. Leave for a few minutes to cool before removing from paper cases and eating!

Remember that the longer you leave them out, the more likely they will be dry. This is because moisture evaporates as time goes on.

  2. Beat in vanilla extract or another flavoring you choose to use. Add dry ingredients (flour, baking powder) gradually and mix until all ingredients are combined.
  3. Add a few fresh cherries and chocolate chips to the muffin batter if desired.
  4. Fill muffin tins ¾ of the way full with batter and bake for 20 minutes or until risen and golden brown on top.

What You Need to Know about Cadbury Cherry Ripe Bars

Cherry Ripe is a brand of chocolate bar manufactured by Cadbury Australia. It consists of cherries and coconut coated with dark chocolate.

Introduced by the Australian confectioner MacRobertson’s in 1924, it is now one of Australia’s oldest chocolate bars and one of the top chocolate bar brands sold.

After Cadbury acquired Australian confectioner MacRobertson’s in 1967, it continued to manufacture it, along with Freddo, Old Gold, and Snack.

The wrappers continued to display the former company’s distinctive logo until 2002.

How to Make the Perfect Muffins?

What is a muffin?

A muffin is a baked good that usually consists of flour, sugar, milk or water (or both), butter, and eggs. The batter can also contain baking powder, salt, spices, and flavorings.

Muffins are often tall like cupcakes without frosting with an indented top surface, making them easy to cut in half for eating.

A muffin is usually eaten as a brunch food and can be served with butter, margarine, and fruit preserves like strawberry or raspberry jam, honey, or yogurt for breakfast.

What are the basic ingredients?

You will need some flour, sugar (brown or white), butter, eggs, milk, and a little salt.

Sometimes people add additional ingredients to make muffins a little more interesting.

General tips

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Create a muffin pan with cooking spray or lining cups in the tin with paper liners.
  • Mix all ingredients and pour into prepared muffin tins, filling them ¾ of the way full. Bake for 20 minutes or until risen and golden brown.
  • Cool in the pan for five minutes before turning onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.


What Other Items Will You Need?

You may also need a muffin tray, chocolate ganache, melted chocolate, melted butter, coconut sugar, wire rack, spoon, stir, and coconut cream.

What Type of Pan Should You Use?

Using a muffin tray for this Australian cherry ripe recipe would be best. To make sure that they come out quickly, line up baking paper on top of each mold so it comes out easily when it cooks.

I advise you to spray the pan with cooking oil before pouring your batter and filling it about ¾ full.

Cherry Ripe Cupcakes

These are one of my all-time favorite desserts! They’re sweet, moist, and full of flavor – and they’re always a hit at parties and potlucks.

  • First, ensure your cherries are ripe and juicy – this will give your cupcakes the best flavor.
  • Second, use good quality chocolate for the frosting – I like to use dark chocolate milk for these cupcakes.
  • And finally, don’t overmix the batter – too much mixing will make your cupcakes tough.

Follow these tips, and you’ll have the perfect dish every time!

Milk chocolate cherry ripe

Some people like dark chocolate, some like milk chocolate, and some like something in between.

But when it comes to candy bars, there’s one that has stood the test of time. This classic Australian candy bar is made with milk chocolate and real cherries.

You’re seriously missing out if you’ve never had a Cherry Ripe. Trust me on this one.
