This chocolate biscuit cake can be put together in less than 40 minutes. It is also known as cold cake because you chill it in the fridge and ditch the baking.
This dessert is a love affair between biscuits and chocolate and the couple makes a tempting dessert for any date.
The best thing about this recipe is the simple ingredients.
Whisk the butter and sugar in a large bowl until just combined. The sugar is still granular but it will melt upon heating.
Add in 2 two eggs and whisk again.
Dump in cocoa powder and mix evenly.
Cook the chocolate sauce on medium-low heat with constant stirring. First of all the sugar will dissolve then eggs will also cook to further thicken the sauce.
Break Marie biscuit into chunks and mix in the chocolate sauce until well combined.
Transfer the cake mixture to greased pan. Cover with a cling wrap and cool in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Heat cream in a pan and add chocolate, remove the pan from heat and keep stirring until the chocolate has melted. Your chocolate ganache is ready.
Pour warm chocolate ganache over the cake surface and spread evenly. Finish with roasted peanuts or any nuts of your choice. Chill the cake before slicing. Store the cold cake in the refrigerator.
