Ahh – okay, so the royal wedding was a week ago.
Yes, I was obsessed.
Kate looked gorgeouuus.
However, there was one part of the royal wedding that I was seeing everywhere, to0..
Wills’ choice of wedding cake – the chocolate biscuit cake.
Tea biscuits (cookies)? Double Yum.
I didn’t set out to make it – but my mom showed up at my apartment with a box of tea biscuits, chocolate, and hazelnuts.
I did really want to make an entire cake…so I decided on making little cups.
First, nuked some semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave until it was mostly melted (5 blocks of Baker’s):
Then added around a tablespoon (maybe a little less…it was just guestimated) of butter and maybe a tablespoon of fat free half and half….nuked for about 10 seconds more, and then stirred it allll together into a beautiful ganache.
I managed to resist spooning this right to my face… amazing.
Then I crumbled the biscuits and added some hazelnuts – honestly, this was all guestimation, too – maybe half of a package (1/4 of the whole box).
Then mixed in the chocolate and scooped the mixture into lined cupcake tins (this ended up making 6 perfectly).
Then I just let them set up in the fridge…
These were divine…rich and crunchy. Props to Wills for such good taste.
As Mary Poppins would say, “Practically perfect in every way.”
