Chocolate crunch cake

This easy, no bake cake, is a favourite in our Family, my Nan gave my Dad the recipe when I was younger and it has been made a few times a year ever since!


250g butter 
300g condensed milk
400g milk chocolate
500g rich tea biscuits


Boiled some water in a large saucepan, bring down to a simmer and place a glass bowl on top. 

Into the glass bowl add the butter and chocolate. Stir occasionally.

Whilst the butter and chocolate are melting put the rich tea biscuits into a large sandwich bag (you may need to use two) seal and bash with a rolling pin. You want the biscuits to of roughly smashed into 10ths. So quite small but still solid chunks.

Once the butter and chocolate has melted, add the condensed milk, stir in and immediately take off of the heat. 

Add your crushed biscuits to the mix small amounts at a time, until all of the biscuits are covered in the mix.

Line a large loaf tin with tin foil and press your mixture firmly into the tin. 

Place in the refrigerator, preferably over night but for at least 6 hours. 

Turn out and peel away the tin foil. You can either choose to cover with some milk chocolate, or cut into small slices or chunks. I did the latter, it's a very sickly treat so you do only need a little bite sized chunk. 

Of course, you could always adapt and add ingredients to your liking, we have added some raisins before now. 

Do let me know what you think, I would love to know if you decide to make this yourself.
