This no-bake chocolate cake (in Dutch Arretjescake) was the first cake I've ever made. And this recipe the cake is filled with biscuits and Maltesers. Easy to prepare and you don't need an oven. The full flavor of the chocolate, crunchy Maltesers. This is a delicious sweet treat!
Put a bowl and hang it above hot water. Add both chocolates, butter, and syrup to that pan and let it melt. Stir occasionally.
When the chocolate and butter are melted add the Marie biscuits
Add ⅔ of the Maltesers and stir them quickly through the batter. Don't over stir, otherwise the Maltesers will melt.
Pour the batter in the form and sprinkle the remaining Maltesers on top. Press them slightly.
Cool the cake for 3 hours in the refrigerator.
Slice the cake.
This no-bake chocolate cake is topped and filled with Maltesers, but you can also vary with something like M & M's, chunks of caramel, or fudge.
For this cake, melt the butter, chocolates, and syrup au bain-marie. That means that you hang a heat-proof bowl in a pan of boiling water (on low heat). The bottom of the bowl should not touch the water. This will ensure that the ingredients just melt and not burn.
By wrapping the tin with a plastic foil you make sure that the cake can be easily released from the mold.
