No Bake Chocolate Biscuits Cake w/ Dried Fruit and Almonds
Chocolate biscuits cake is a simple dessert that can be festive and super delicious at the same time. Biscuits along with chocolate, coconut milk, vanilla, almonds, and dried fruit all together create a very flavorful dessert.
The cake is very simple to make. All you do is make sure you have all the ingredients on hand and then you can go straight to assembly. The biscuits I used for this recipe are store-bought, but if you want to put in some extra effort, you can also make the cake with homemade biscuits.
Here, we go for the simple and quick option of using store-bought biscuits.
