The Best Chocolate Biscuit Cake. We love a good chocolate biscuit cake, don’t You? They are so easy to make AND No-Bake; Our two requirements for a simple dessert. This biscuit cake we made with crunchie bars and marshmallows. It is so good.
Oh my word, I wish chocolate biscuit cakes were something we could be making every single week. We’ve practically been dreaming of this cake ever since we made it for SKC.
Regrettably biscuit cakes are not the healthiest in the world (I mean it is a dessert) but that just means when we bring them out for Christmas and other celebrations of the like, we can enjoy every bite that much more.
So lets dive into everything you need to know about chocolate biscuit cakes.
How to make chocolate biscuit cake
As you may know there are so many ways you can make a biscuit cake…. so many delicious options.
With ours we’ve used a variation of milk and dark chocolate, butter, golden syrup, digestives, raisins, mini marshmallows and Crunchie bars. 🤤
Crunchie Bar Replacement: You can use 1 packet of Maltesers in replacement of the Crunchie bars if you would like.
Gluten-Free Chocolate Biscuit Cake? Yes you can make our biscuit cake gluten-free and actually really easily with one swap. The digestives. Use gluten-free digestives instead and everything else is gluten-free friendly, even the crunchie bars!
Pan Size for Biscuit Cake: We personally used a 9inch round for our recipe but if you have a 10 Inch round on hand there is no reason to go out and buy another. Just keep in mind that the size of the cake result will be different.
How to decorate a chocolate biscuit cake
The options are seriously endless with this cake. So we’ll go through what we did and other options.
Chocolate Ganache. Oohhhhhhh the ganache might be my favorite. It’s rather simple to make. We’ll share a ‘formal’ recipe on here but in the meantime. It’s roughly..
1 Part Chocolate to 1 Part Double Cream. So a 1:1 ratio.
Here is one that you can use if you are out of double cream and just want to use milk instead.
We then adding some lindt chocolate truffle and melted white chocolate chips for the drizzle.
Other topping options: Maltesers, fondant icing, smarties, or mini mallows
