No-bake Chocolate Cake

N & N wanted to bake something for daddy as a surprise for Father’s day. Somehow they did not get a chance to bake the day before. Sunday morning daddy stepped out for an hour to meet some friends, then N made this cake as the Father’s day treat. It’s a very simple cake, made with ingredients that are available at home. This cake is best when consumed right after its done. Leaving it for long will make it have a mousse texture. Kids liked the texture right after and the next day as well. I so like this recipe as we can control the size of the cake we can make just enough for one serving :).. This cake works great for summer as well, as one doesn’t need to spend long time in the kitchen making them …

Ingredients

marie biscuit/digestive biscuits 10
sugar 3 tbsp
unsweetened cocoa powder 2 tbsp

Dip a biscuit in milk, place it in the plate.
Spread the cocoa icing over it and repeat this until the last biscuit.
Don’t spread icing on top of the last biscuit.
