One word describes this dessert...DELICIOUS! This was a really fun recipe that I let my little girl help me with. We used raspberry jelly and decorated with grated chocolate as suggested. Even more fun than making this, was eating it. Raspberry, cream, chocolate...what's not to love???
Oops, forgot to give any stars - 5 stars!
I used the Nabisco Chocolate Cookies to make mine. I used strawberry cream cheese frosting in the middle of each cookie, then made it as the recipe showed. I sprinkled chopped walnuts on top after placing whole strawberries around the cake. It looked so pretty and tasted even better!
When I went back to Australia after a 12 year absence, the first thing I made was this chocolate ripple cake. It was just as heavenly as I remembered it. I used to make it as a log with two rows of biscuits. I also used to cover it with whipped cream, sliced strawberries and chocolate leaves. I had never thought of making it into a circle to be honest and it looks absolutely wonderful that way too.
The real Aussie version has the biscuits soaked in Rum, but I find Creme de Cacao is much nicer. After assembling. Cover with whipped cream, roll in crushed almonds and decorate the top with 3 or 4 glaced cherries. And most importantly - to serve. Cut each slice on an angle.
Have never seen nor tasted this cake before. Love that it was fast and tasty. Thanks for sharing!
After my mom requested Homemade Ravioli with Tomato Sauce for her birthday supper I knoew that I wanted to make an easy dessert to go with the meal and this was perfect! I did not use the jam/sherry just whipping cream and chocolate wafer cookies. I placed them in a log and made a sort of "black forest" variation by topping the log with cherry filling and chocolate curls. Delicious and looked fantastic! It was the perfect end to our birthday celebration meal, thanks! :)
like Jen, I have been making this for years, but I always spread jam on one side, and dip the other side in cream sherry. I only ever make it at xmas, because I like it way too much :)
This is a plain version of my 'Jen's Chocolate Chip Biscuit/Cookie Log' which uses 'Swiss Cream' in place of plain cream. I have been making these for about 40years..LOL Thanks Jan for showing me another way to serve as I had never thought of making it in the ring shape. A great summer dessert when the berries are ripe.:)
This was a real hit as one of our Christmas desserts, I used chocolate chippies (couldnt find a plain chocolate biscuit), dipped in sherry and shaped in to a log. Delicious.
