This cake takes rum balls to a whole new level, adding cream and ganache for an incredible layered dessert that is so simple to make. Make it pareve or dairy, according to your personal preference. A great activity for kids who want to help out on Erev Shabbos!

Ingredients

Biscuit Base

  • 7 ounces (200 grams) Elite Bittersweet Chocolate

  • 3 and 1/2 ounces (100 grams) butter or margarine, or 1/4 cup canola oil

  • 1/2 cup sugar

Topping

Ganache

  • 3 and 1/2 ounces (100 grams) Geneve Milk Chocolate or bittersweet chocolate

  • 1/2 cup (100 ml) heavy cream or pareve whipping cream

Directions

For the Base

1.

Break the tea biscuits into fairly big pieces.

2.

Place chocolate, butter (or margarine, or oil), sugar, and milk into a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until you have a smooth cream. Remove from heat and add the tea biscuits.

3.

Mix well and pour into a 9- x 13-inch baking pan. Freeze.

For the Topping

1.

Beat cream for the topping with vanilla pudding until firm. Spread over biscuit mixture in pan.

2.

Freeze for two hours.

For the Ganache

1.

Melt chocolate in a microwave or a double boiler. Add the cream and mix with a whisk until well blended. (If using dairy cream, you can heat it in a pot first to make it easier to mix.)

2.

Pour over cake and smooth with a spatula.

3.

Return the pan to the freezer until ready to serve.

When I make this cake, I store it in the freezer but take it out an hour before serving so it’s cold but not frozen when eating.
