Chocolate brick

I know this blog is beginning to look like a chocolate blog, but with 2 little kids around me all the time, chocolate it’s just what you need (and crave) after a long exhausting day!


150 g chocolate

250 ml double cream

50 g butter

100 g petit beurre (or other kind of thin, dry, plain cookies)

60 g sliced almonds

100 g sugar

50 g cocoa

Serves 6 to 8 people

  • Melt the chocolate with the cream and the butter. Let it cool.
  • Crush the cookies in a plastic bag. Add them to a bowl with almonds, sugar and cocoa.
  • Add the melted chocolate and mix well.
  • Cover a plumcake mold with plastic wrap. Fill it with the chocolate mixture.
  • Freeze it overnight.
  • Serve straight from the freezer with a nice glass of whisky, possible Scottish.
