Recipe: Chocolate Digestive Cakes

54
by : 
JohnM

Digestives are popular biscuits in the UK – great for dunking into your tea or coffee! So, it’s easy to see why ‘chocolate digestive cakes’ are a real favourite in my family. Sweet tooth required.

You will need   
A large baking tray    
A large bowl    
A small pot or microwave bowl  
A wooden spoon      

Ingredients
A large packet of digestive biscuits (original or chocolate)
100g butter
200g chocolate
Optional: 100g chocolate

Preparation
Grease the baking tray with spare butter or oil.

Method
1. Melt the butter and chocolate together in small pot (or microwave). Stir well with the wooden spoon.
2. Put the digestives in a large bowl and crush into small pieces – the smaller the better.
3. Pour the melted mixture into bowl. Mix together with the wooden spoon.
4. Empty the bowl onto prepared baking tray. Flatten contents with a wooden spoon.
5. Leave to cool for 30 minutes.
6. Optional: Melt chocolate. Pour the chocolate over the cake. Leave to cool for 30 minutes.
7. Put tray in fridge and leave to set for two hours.
8. Cut cake into squares, serve and enjoy.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Bon appétit!

Yeah I will, it's just that it can't be edible. Anyway, I'm not a huge fan of chocolate. But it makes our mood good!!!

mmmm :D
In my familiy do these cakes quite often. But on top of them we usually put some cocos fluor or other decoration. Another tasty recipe is that you make balls from the mixture (you can also add cocos flour - I love it! :D ).

Thanks for that Elana,I don´t like eggs especially sunny-side up eggs though I like them in an omelette with cheese or mushrooms or scrambled with green beans.What about you?

Hi MALINE,
I take my eggs over easy. I also like omelettes with onions, peppers, mushrooms & cheese. Yum! Have you seen this video in the VideoZone about how to make the perfect omelette? Every time I watch it, I get hungry!

Hi MALINE,
If you just crack the egg and cook it in the pan with the yolk intact, that's called a fried egg. It is also known as a sunny-side up egg. How do you like your eggs?

Hi, MALINE. If I'm honest, I don't cook often - I prefer to bake. But I'll see what I can do.

I'll definitely try it, chocolate cakes're my favourite ones. It's a pity I hadn't see this recipe before my birthday(11.6.), because I'd make it for my friends, for a snack. But I had a lovely chocolate cake:).
