When it comes to simple desserts, it doesn’t get any better than a good old fashioned chocolate ripple cake… it really is the perfect no-bake dessert! And so why not turn it into a yummy Easter dessert by decorating it with ALL the Easter eggs!? That seems like a fabulous idea, right!???

Chocolate ripple cake – an Australian classic recipe

All Australian’s know and love chocolate ripple cake – it’s one of our most famous desserts. And the best part is that it only takes a few minutes to prepare, doesn’t need to be cooked… and tastes AMAZING!

Chocolate ripple cake is traditionally made using Arnott’s chocolate ripple biscuits, but if you can’t buy them where you live, any plain chocolate cookie will work beautifully too.

The ingredients for choc ripple cake

This is one of my favourite desserts to whip up… and so it helps that it needs only a few basic ingredients:

  • 600ml thickened cream (whipping cream)
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250g Arnott’s chocolate ripple biscuits

…. and to decorate this Easter chocolate ripple cake, I also used a mix of hollow medium sized chocolate eggs as well as mini solid eggs.

Tips for making chocolate ripple cake

  • choose a cream that is suitable for whipping (thickened cream or heavy cream… not light cream)
  • you can replace the caster sugar and vanilla extract with alcohol (such as Kahlua or Baileys) for an adults-only dessert
  • for a double chocolate twist, add a tbs of cocoa powder to the cream when whipping
  • if you can’t buy Arnott’s chocolate ripple biscuits, you can replace them with any plain chocolate cookie
  • spread a little bit of whipped cream along your serving plate to help keep the biscuits in place
  • be careful not to over-whip the cream
  • chocolate ripple cake is best left in the fridge overnight before serving – this allows the chocolate biscuits to soak up the liquid from the cream and become beautifully soft
  • when serving, slice the chocolate ripple cake on an angle so you see all of the beautiful layers

Ingredients

  • 600 ml thickened cream
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250 g Arnott's Choc Ripple biscuits
  • Easter eggs, to decorate

Instructions

  • Place the cream, caster sugar and vanilla extract into a bowl. Beat with handheld beaters or a stand-mixer until soft peaks form.
  • Spread some of the whipped cream along the base of your serving dish.
  • Hold one chocolate ripple biscuit in your hand. Spread a teaspoon of whipped cream onto the flat edge and place another chocolate ripple biscuit on top. Repeat until you have a stack of 3-4 biscuits in your hand.
  • Place the stack standing upright onto the cream on the serving plate. Repeat with another 3-4 biscuits and then join that stack to the serving platter to form one long log.
  • Repeat until all of the biscuits have been used.
  • Use the remaining whipped cream to spread over the entire outside of the log.
  • For best results, place in the fridge overnight before serving (as this will allow the biscuits to soften).
