It was my best friend’s birthday last Friday. I decided to make her a chocolate biscuit cake, yet again! I normally use Cadbury’s chocolate when making this cake but as Galaxy is her favourite type of chocolate I used that instead. This is the kind of cake that you can adapt every time you make it to suit each person’s preference. Sometimes I use rich tea biscuits, other times I use digestives. Sometimes I put in marshmallows, or maltesers, or crunchies. And sometimes I use a caramel bar or orange chocolate or mint chocolate to change it up completely. Like I said, it is entirely up to you! The following recipe is the one I used last Friday.
400g galaxy chocolate
4tbsp golden syrup
1 packet of rich tea biscuits
Share bag of rolos
Share bag of munchies
2 bars of toffee crisp
100g maltesers teasers chocolate (to cover)
Share bag of m&m’s
1. Place the margarine and golden syrup in a bowl over a pot of simmering water.
2. Break the chocolate into squares and mix it into the margarine and golden syrup until melted.
3. Remove the bowl from the heat, break the biscuits (I usually hit the packet a few times with a rolling pin before opening it!) and add them to the chocolate.
4. Roughly chop the toffee crisp bars and throw them into the mix along with the munchies and rolos (and whatever else you decide to use).
5. Scoop the cake into a lined tin and place it in the fridge to cool for a few hours.
6. Remove the cake from the fridge, take it out of the tin and put it on a plate.
7. Melt the teasers bar in a bowl over simmering water and pour the melted chocolate over the top of the chocolate biscuit cake. Leave it drip down the sides of the cake as it helps the twix’s to stick.
8. Place the twix’s around the outside of the cake. Put some more melted chocolate on the sides of the cake or the back of each twix to help them stick if you need to.
9. Pour the share bag of m&m’s over the melted teasers bar and tie a ribbon around the cake.
10. Put the cake back into the fridge to cool.
