No Bake Chocolate Biscuit Cake

Here is a simple and easy cake to make for kids that tastes delicious. I made this cake for my nieces who love to eat anything made with biscuits! Even though I am not very fond of biscuit cakes, I must say even I enjoyed eating this cake!
I had bookmarked this recipe years ago and I finally had the chance to make this cake. This is one of the easiest  and tastiest no bake desserts I have made. There are many versions of biscuit cakes and this is one of my favorites.

11. For the ganache - Place the cream in a small glass bowl and microwave for 30 seconds or heat in saucepan until bubbles appear.

12. Pour this cream over the chocolate. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then whisk well until it's mixed well and smooth.
13. Remove the cake pan from the refrigerator and pour the ganache over it. Tap lightly to spread it well.

You can decorate with chocolate chips or chopped nuts or sprinkles.

Chocolate Biscuit Cake

1. You can use nuts like almonds or walnuts. I had only peanuts at hand so used that.
2. You can toast the nuts in a microwave for 45 seconds too.
3. Make sure you break the biscuits into small bite sized pieces. My biscuits were slightly larger. 
4. Use whatever biscuits you have at hand. Even left over biscuits will work.
5. If using peanuts, remove the skin after roasting it.

Until next time,
