Easter Dessert – Chocolate Ripple Cake

This Easter Dessert has been a wonderful hit over the years, it’s so very easy to make and those that eat it wouldn’t realise it only took you minutes to make!

I made a chocolate ripple cake for our guests at Christmas, it was easy to put together and so very tasty.  So I thought I’d make an Easter version for an Easter gathering we were having.  You will need overnight (or 6 hours) to let it sit, but it should only take you 10 minutes to assemble, then a further 10 min to decorate.  A slice no more than 1.5-2cm is ample anymore and you’ll get a cream headache. There would be enough to serve 10.

Make cream mixture then spread a tablespoon over one biscuit and repeat 4 times finishing with a choc biscuit

Place biscuits stack onto a platter, that has been spread with a few tablespoons of cream.  This will help the biscuits stand upright

Cover biscuit stacks with remaining cream, decorate with some yummy easter treats and then refrigerate overnight. 

The biscuits become soft, cake like even, making it easy to slice through.

Yum! Chocolate Ripple Cake was one of our most frequent birthday cake requests as kids.

A friend of mine made an ‘adult’ version of this; using Griffins Chocolate Chippy Bikkies and dunking them in a liqueur before spreading cream on them!

My mum used to make a similar one with the cookies dipped in coffee before laying flat and covering with cream. Several layers and cover the edges before chilling. I like the way yours are stacked though, looks good when it’s cut!
