This Chocolate Mosaic is my version of a chocolate fridge cake recipe. This no-bake dessert is a really easy option for a dinner party dessert recipe, but is also the perfect afternoon treat. It’s my go-to choice when I need something indulgent and quick that I know will be a guaranteed hit with everyone who tries a piece (who doesn’t like chocolate and biscuits?!).
I like to use crushed Petit-Beurre biscuits here, because these are what my sister suggested when she gave me the recipe. I have experimented with lots of other varieties with great success too, though, so don’t be afraid to use what’s to hand! Rich Tea or Digestive biscuits work similarly, or mix up the texture with a crunchy Hobnob. And don’t forget to try it with the addition of Cognac, or Baileys (or Amaretto, or… you digestif of choice, really!) if you like an alcoholic edge - it changes this up and makes it a great treat for the grown-ups.
Add the double cream in a small pot over medium heat and bring it to a boil. Turn off the heat, add the dark chocolate and stir until it melts completely. Set aside and let it cool.
Add the chocolate mixture to the biscuits and blend them softly (try to not break the biscuits to even smaller pieces).
Sprinkle with half a cup of milk over the biscuits, if you prefer them to be tender and moist.
Add 3 tbsp of cognac or Baileys on the mixture for additional flavour.
