Chocolate Biscuits Slice

Have you eaten Chocolate Biscuits Cake before?  I remember when I was working way back in PJ, a colleague of mine, made this non-baked chocolate slice which is so delicious.  I have asked her for her recipe but unfortunately, after few shifting houses, I can't find that recipe anywhere with me anymore.

I try to google search for Chocolate Biscuits cake which have dessicated coconuts in it but most of it doesn't have that in the ingredients.  

Anyway today I have chosen Donna Hay's recipe but replace the milk instead of cream.


150g biscuits (I used Arnotts’ Milk Coffee), roughly chopped
60ml milk
360g-380g dark chocolate, chopped (do use good quality dark chocolate or you can mix)
95g butter, chopped
cocoa, for dusting

Prepare a 8” square tin lined with non-stick baking paper.

Place the milk, chocolate and butter in a saucepan over low heat and stir until melted and smooth. Place the biscuits in a mixing bowl, pour over two-thirds of the chocolate and stir to coat.

Spoon into square pan and press to level filling up any holes, and pour over the remaining chocolate mixture. Tap the sides of the tin to remove any bubbles. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until set. Remove from tin, dust with cocoa and cut into squares to serve.

Original recipe sourced and inspired from Donna Hay's Chocolate Shortbread Slice

This is my second time making this.  The first one, I have used another recipe which is similarly.  But using the local Marie biscuits.  And after a day or two in the fridge, the biscuits in the chocolate turn soft.  This is why, I used Arnotts' Milk Coffee this time.  

       This is so easy to make and so heavenly delicious too!

  1. Looks good and yummy. Giving you 2 thumbs up :D
    is it similar to kek batik?

    1. Yes, you are right Lisa, it is also called "Kek Batik".

  2. Looking at yours reminds me that i have not eaten this for quite some time, it was something very popular back then right? I think we use Marie biscuit with milo to make it. Yours is more sophisticated with dark chocolate and cocoa powder, must be delicious! I want some for tea :)

  3. Looks yummy Mel. This will be a nice treat for morning and afternoon tea!

  4. Mel, this is such an easy dessert to make but it looks pretty good! I bet it is very delicious and can't stop at one piece :)

  5. Mel, this kek batik looks so pretty! yummy!

    Thanks for linkup with Little Thumbs Up!

  6. Hello Mel, your Chocolate Biscuit Slice looks "seductively tempting" to wanna bite it ... yummy!

  7. Mmmm.. I can imagine this to taste so chocolatey-yummy since you made it twice already ^^

  8. Mel, this is look like Sarawak Kek Batik, very tempting and beautiful! :)

  9. Hi Mel,

    It looks really easy to make this delicious treat... It does like Kek Batik with its white random pattern :D


  10. Nope I haven't but I can definitely imagine how very very addictive this can get for me! Nice!

  11. Mel, you moved a few times before. Each time must be a big hassle, isn't it with the packing & unpacking jobs to do. I believe that using the milk coffee biscuits to bake is prettier than marie? I just imagine that marie biscuits are flatter whereas this milk coffee biscuits are higher, give a better visual effect. They look delicious !

  12. That is a lovely slice, Mel. Perfect with a cup of tea!

  13. Unfortunately no, I've never had these delicious looking sweets before! Love the idea of biscuits and chocolate together (it's always better WITH chocolate!). Love how it looks too, when you slice it!

  14. hi mel, i happened to read lisa's comment and the mention of kek batik, i almost forgot abt kek batik! it is also very popular especially among our malay friends. dark chocolate must be very yummy too. simple and non baked, thanks for linking!
