  • 28 oz  800g digestive biscuits, or any tea biscuits.*
  • 1 cup  hazelnuts toasted slightly chopped.

To make the chocolate syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar.
  • 1/2 cup  cocoa powder.**
  • 1 cup  water.
  • 2/3 cup butter.

Chocolate Glaze:

  • 4 oz semi sweet chocolate bar chopped.
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons corn syrup.
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream.
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar.


  • In a deep bowl, break the biscuits into small pieces and set aside.

Make the syrup:

  • In a saucepan, stir together cocoa powder and sugar then add water and stir over medium heat until it boils.
  • Add butter and reduce heat, keep simmering for 5 more minutes.
  • Pour syrup over biscuit pieces and mix well, fold in chopped hazelnuts.
  • Press the biscuit mixture in a 9inch springform pan lined with parchment paper. Refregerate for 1 hour.

Make the glaze:

  • Place the chopped chocolate and corn syrup in a bowl and set aside.
  • In a sauce pan over medium heat, add heavy cream and sugar.
  • Stir until the sugar has completely dissolved and the mixture is hot.
  • Pour over the chocolate and mix until smooth.
  • Pour glaze over the chocolate cake and refrigerate again for 4 hours and preferably over night.
  • Take it out of the pan. And decorate with some chocolate balls if desired.


* Any tea biscuit can work as well, like Marie.
** Use cocoa powder of your choice, I've used unsweetened dutch if you use sweetened then you need to lessen the amount of sugar used.
