- 1/2 cup of butter at room temperature
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 3/4 cup of cream
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pinch of salt
- 1 packet of Marie biscuits
- 1/2 cup of milk
In the bowl of your mixer whip the butter until fluffy. Turn it off, add the icing sugar and cocoa powder and keep beating until incorporated. Add vanilla and the pinch of salt and keep mixing. Finally add the cream and whip until the chocolate icing is nice and fluffy.
Pour the milk into a bowl (big enough to dip the biscuits in).
Dip the biscuits a few at a time into the milk and lay them into your serving dish. I used a small pyrex dish 10 cm x 15 cm and I needed 6 biscuits to make a single layer.
After the layer of biscuits add a third of the icing mixture, followed by biscuits etc until you finish up with the icing on top.
Place the whole concoction in the fridge for at least 4 hours, this gives the biscuits enough time to soften.
When ready to serve sprinkle with some nuts (for crunch) and serve with vanilla ice cream or cream.
