    Yummy (!) And just when I was trying to cut down on the chocolate; and the honey; and the cream…. etc…. Oh my!
    Will be going away for a week in early July and another in early August and am trying to fit into my swimsuit.
    On the other hand – there’s nothing to stop me taking another look at this recipe AFTER the holidays is there (?)…..heh heh!!

    Grannymar,

    I got up very early this morning and made this Chocolate Biscuit cake. It was so delicious I ate the whole thing myself.

    Now I am in my doctor’s office waiting my turn for a shot of insulin…..Maybe two shots… Maybe a shot to take home for when I make this again tomorrow…

    3-4 Choc. covered honeycomb bars

    This looks delicious. However being me, I’d have to cut out the butta (southern pronunciation), cream, syrup, Honeycomb Bars, & marshmallows. But then it wouldn’t be your CHOCOLATE BISCUIT CAKE.

    WWW – The secret is to serve very small slices or squares.

    Sandra – I use about 9 or 10 ounces of digestive biscuits. Sometimes I use a full packet and adjust the other ingredients. After a lifetime of cooking and baking with my mother it is very much go by look and feel of a mix.
