Non-Bake Flourless Biscuit Cake


Made this yummy choco biscuit cake over the weekend.  To me, it can be referred to as a non-bake cake and also a biscuit as part of the ingredients is biscuits.  For some people, chocolate can be a delicious obession and this easy-to-make biscuit cake is just lovely to enjoy!










This can be served as a dessert, kept chilled or even as a snack ....... crunchy, nutty, not too sweet and full of yummy chocolate!

  9. I would love to have a slice for my dessert now. It is nice to see a no-bake cake. This would be great for very warm days when turning on the oven is not a good idea.
