LUX_3377

INGREDIENTS:-

  • 150 gms- marie biscuits (crushed into very tiny pieces)
  • ¼ cup black raisins
  • 200 gms- cooking chocolate (chipped)
  • 100 gm- cream (Amul)
  • ½ tsp- vanilla essence

METHOD:-

  1. Crush biscuits and mix essence with it. Add raisins.
  2. Heat cream on very low heat in a heavy bottomed pan. Add chipped chocolate to it. Mix it well till chocolate melts. Remove from fire and stir well to make a smooth ganache.
  3. Mix a little more than half of the ganache with the crushed biscuits, just enough to bind the mixture nicely. When held within the palm, it should bind together.
  4. Line a loaf tin with aluminium foil and put the mixture into it. Press and level it with your hands. Keep in the freezer for 10 minutes till set.
  5. Demould the set biscuits on a wire rack. Place a plate underneath the rack. Heat the remaining ganache, if need be with a tbsp of water and pour on the set biscuit mixture. Level the ganache on the sides with palette knife and keep in back in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to set.
  6. Cut into 1 ½ inches of square pieces with a serrated bread knife. Decorate it with any slice of fresh fruit of your choice and serve chilled.
