No Bake Biscuit Birthday Cake or some like to call the famous Rocky Road
I don’t think I’ve ever made chocolate biscuit cake before for the record. On that matter what’s the difference between chocolate biscuit cake and rocky road? Marshmallows? Who knows. My particular take on the sweet feast beast as I like to call it, is it includes anything that’s in the sweet cupboard and really all your favourites all mixed up with melted chocolate. It’s got to be the easiest of Cakes to make and can be made up really for any occasion and the fun part is decorating it to suit the occasion.
Anyway here’s my take on it, it’s my husband’s favourite cake, he’s always been asking me to make it, so I made it specially for his birthday this year and to be honest it was that good, it’s made it to the blog!!!
400g Digestive Biscuits (you can also mix between 200g Digestive & 200g of Ginger nut biscuits)
3 Large Crunchy Bars
80g Mini Marshmallows 140g Butter
350g Dark Chocolate
350g Milk Chocolate
4 tbsp Honey or golden syrup
Line an eight inch round cake tin with a double layer of parchment paper or cling film.
Melt the butter, dark chocolate, milk chocolate and honey over a saucepan of simmering water.
Bash up the biscuits and crunchy bars into chunky pieces and add into melted chocolate stir well to combine. Wait 5 minutes to add in mini marshmallows so they don’t melt with the heat.
Pour the chocolate and biscuit mixture into the lined cake tin, gently press down to ensure the chocolate is holding firm.
Transfer to the fridge and allow to set for two hours.
When set, remove from the fridge and decorate to your liking.
I used my chocolate buttercream recipe below and topped with extra malteasers & mini chocolate eggs. Have fun decorating for the occasion 🐣 🎂 For the Buttercream!
125 g Unsalted Butter (room temp)
250 g Icing Sugar
150 g Cadbury Dairy Milk (melted)For the Buttercream!
Melt your Dairy Milk till smooth
Beat the butter for a couple of minutes to really loosen it – Gradually add the icing sugar on a slow speed until it is combined then speed the mixer up and beat for 3-4 minutes until fluffy and smooth.
Add the melted chocolate to the buttercream and mix again - till smooth!
Smooth all over the cake and add the your toppings of choice.
I hope you try it out or make it your own.
