Chocolate Biscuit Cake

On Wednesday, it was my brother's birthday. Not being bale to get up to Dublin for it, I wanted to do something nice for him with everything that has happened. So I invited him and my dad up for dinner yesterday and decided to treat him to his all time favourite cake - Chocolate Biscuit. I love that he likes this because it is so easy to make and you dont have to put it into the oven.

Here is my go to recipe for 4 people

220g Milk Chocolate
110g Dark Chocolate (brother isn't a massive fan of Dark chocolate, if you are simply double this and half the milk chocolate)
3 tbsp Golden Syrup
75g Malteasers
110g Butter
225g Biscuits, I use a mix of chocolate digestives and rich tea
1 bag Mint Aero and remaining Malteasers for decoration

All you need to do is melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave. (I give it 30 seconds at a time so the chocolate doesn't burn), mix in the golden syrup, crush the biscuits, pop in the malteasers and stir until combined. I used an 8inch round tin with a cake liner so it was easy to remove. when half set, decorate with chocolate of your choice.
I ran out of Malteasers :( 
It's hard to make a chocolate biscuit cake look fancy without going all out with fondant or doing a kit kat cake but it tasted amazing. Next time I'll mix in the mint bubbles.

Are you a fan of chocolate biscuit cake?
