Chocolate biscuit cake is a popular home-made cookie bar in Ireland. It’s similar to rocky road, and the ingredients are very much to taste. Chocolate biscuit cake is so popular in Ireland that people often choose it as their wedding cake, with tiers of chocolate biscuit cake covered with white fondant icing.
Chocolate biscuit cake can be whatever you want it to be. You can add mashmallows, dried fruit, candy pieces, nuts etc. The only ingredients you really must have are the chocolate and biscuits. My recipe here includes digestive biscuits (you can use graham crackers), marshmallows and some golden raisins, but feel free to change it and add your own favorites nuts or dried fruits. It’s a really simple recipe to make, and I guarantee you it will disappear in minutes!
- 125g soft butter
- 300g dark chocolate (you can also use milk / white chocolate if preferred)
- 3 tablespoons golden syrup
- 200g digestive biscuits/ Graham crackers/ Ginger cookies
- 100 grams mini marshmallows
- 30g golden sultanas/ dried cranberries/ dried cherries
- Line a 9 inch square tin with parchment paper.
- Melt the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a saucepan, over a medium heat.
- Put the biscuits into a bag and then bash them with a rolling pin. You want small and medium sized shards of biscuits with some crumbs.
- Pour the biscuit pieces and crumbs into the melted chocolate mixture in the saucepan, and then add the marshmallows and sultanas. Stir to combine.
- Pour the mixture into the lined tin, and flatten the top with a spoon.
- Allow to cool, and then put in the fridge to harden.
- After a few hours, take the tin out of the fridge. Remove the biscuit cake from the tin and chop into squares/ bars.
