This was really easy to make. It just takes a few minutes, then you let it set and it's ready to eat. It's also great as you can make it in advance for parties, or if you are getting unexpected guests.
The original recipe says to use 60% cocoa chocolate or more, but I used what I had in the house and it worked, but I will try it next time with 60% or more to see the difference. Now I use Croatian Rum, as I love the taste and aroma when combined with chocolate, but use what you love.
The name of the cookbook is amusing, 6 ingredients or less, yet here we have 9 ingredients. They don't count pantry staples, well I do, so not really only 6 ingredients.
This is easy and yum, I'm off to have a slice now. Give this a try soon.
Makes about 20 pieces
200g dark chocolate
110g unsalted butter
2 egg yolks
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon caster sugar
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons Croatian Rum (dark rum)
200g digestive biscuits, broken into pieces
Icing sugar, for rolling
Place the chocolate and butter in a medium sized saucepan over a low heat and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring, to allow the butter and chocolate to melt. Add the egg yolks, stir constantly, to combine, for about 1 minute.
Add the cocoa powder, sugar, salt and rum and stir well. Finally add the broken biscuits and stir again. Set aside to cool slightly so that it thickens and you can handle the mixture.
Spoon the mixture in a line in the centre of a piece of baking paper. Roll the paper around the mixture to form a log shape. Wrap the log in plastic wrap, push in the ends, twist the plastic wrap ends to make like a lolly wrapper. Transfer to the fridge for about 2 hours before you are ready to serve.
Sift some icing sugar onto a clean, dry work surface. Remove the log from the fridge, unwrap and roll it gently in the icing sugar. Slice into rounds using a sharp knife.
