Cut slice into roughly 16 pieces and enjoy! You can also add nuts for dried fruit to this slice… Replace 100g of the biscuits for pecans, hazelnuts, sultanas or almonds!

  1. Normally I’m not a fan of dark chocolate, but in baking it is just too good to resist. Thank you very much for walking through step by step, I’m always so curious when I’m trying a new recipe what other peoples’ look like at the stage I’m at!

    Will definitely be trying this one.

    Writing from the states – I’m wondering if “dark chocolate” is sweetened? Or if it’s what we call bittersweet or semi-sweet… Thanks!

      Howdy! It is what you call bittersweet or semi-sweet. Any chocolate will work for this recipe though… Whatever suits your tastes. But it is traditionally made with a high cocoa % variety.

  3. Oh my this looks delicious. Very simple and very good!

  4. Yep, I do this recipe all the time, in Hungary we call it ‘keksz csokiszalami’, which means chocolate salami with biscuits (salami because we usually do it in a longish rounded salami-like form, rather than square form). Very delicious!
