Kek Batik Biskut Marie

I realise that I seldom update this blog. My latest passion in sewing has taken a lot of my time. A newbie venturing in crafts... ;-)

In this entry, I'm sharing a Kek Batik Biskut Marie recipe. I fail to understand why is this lovely dessert called a cake. But again what shall I address it? Brownie?

I have always love to eat this sinful dessert. Never wanted to make it my own as none of my girls showed any interest. Now they begin to appreciate it & we can really attack this kek batik like vultures!

I've tasted many kek batik but so far, this is the recipe I like best. My sister's... I used to simply request for her to make some for me but now that I'm sharing the portion with my girls as well, I decided to ask her for the recipe. So, here we go...

First is to break 300g of biskut marie into smaller pieces. I normally ask my assistants to do this part ;-)

While they get busy with the biscuits, I prepare the chocolate coating. Melt a block of butter (250g).

Once melted pour in 505g of condensed milk. Continue stirring in slow fire.

I prefer this brand.

Next, add in half can (use the condensed milk can for measurement) of cocoa powder. This is the reason why I prefer this recipe as it uses cocoa powder instead of Milo.

Continue stirring & it will turn into this dark chocolate fudge.

Once evenly mixed, join in the biscuit pieces & turn off the gas.

Coat the biscuits with the fudge.

Transfer the coated biscuits onto a tray. I usually put a layer of plastic sheet first. It will come handy when you want to cut it afterward.

Let cool in the fridge.

My sister shared this tip though. She does not use a tray nor a casserole instead a plastic bag.

For this measurement, she will get up to 7 bags which really depend on the sizes. She rolls them neatly & transfer all to the fridge.

The idea is not merely less messy but when it is cut, each piece is coated with chocolate.
