  • 225 g butter
  • 450 g dark chocolate (50-60 %)
  • 1 1/2 dl icing sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 pack squared vanilla biscuits (about 25-30 biscuits)


  • Melt the butter in a small sauce pan.
  • Remove the sauce pan from the heat and add the chocolate. Stir in the mixture until all the chocolate is melted.
  • Add the icing sugar and egg yolks and stir until the mixture is nice and smooth.
  • Line a rectangular bread/loaf pan with plastic wrap film.
  • Pour a thin layer of the chocolate mixture in the bottom of the pan.
  • Cover the chocolate with a layer of biscuits, and then add another layer of the chocolate.
  • Continue until you don't have any more chocolate. Remember to finish off with a layer of chocolate.
  • Cover the bread pan with some aluminum foil and place it in the fridge for minimum 6 hours. The chocolate should become solid.
  • Take the chocolate cake out of the fridge 10-15 minutes before serving it - then it is easier to cut.
