Total Time6 hrs 30 mins
- 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.
