Chocolate Biscuit Cake

An exciting project called "Blog Hop Wednesday" has been initiated by Radhika of Tickling Palates and it starts off today..All the members have to cook up something from their partner blog every alternate Wednesday.

This week, my partner is Vidhya of Sugar and Spice blog and I selected a very simple yet royal Chocolate Biscuit cake to try out from her blog. It was awesome and is an excellent dessert for every occasion. I followed the recipe exactly as mentioned but changed the finishing touches a bit.

Ingredients

250 grams tea biscuits (I used biscuits with nuts)
125 grams unsalted butter
125 grams sugar
250 grams dark chocolate
2 tsp milk

Break the biscuits into small bite size pieces. Beat the sugar and butter and keep aside. Melt the dark chocolate with the milk using double boiler method and when it cools down a bit, add it to the butter mixture and mix well. Add in the biscuit pieces and coat well with the chocolate mix.

If you want individual servings, use small cupcake liners and for a big cake, use a greased pan/bowl according to requirements. Gently put in the biscuit mixture into the bowl and fill tightly without gaps.

** For a smoother finish, powder in the biscuit in the mixture towards the end and give it a smooth finish by covering the gaps.

Garnish with either more dark chocolate or sugar balls or dust with icing sugar and refrigerate for atleast 3 hours and serve.

The crunchiness of biscuits and the chocolate butter mix is just wonderful and will surely tempt you for a second helping.
