As I remember that, this is what dad had to have around Christmas time. He’d make the Christmas Candy Crush a few days before, and made sure the only cake he had to have on the table was there. Frankly, I think it’s a bit heavy for me. Don’t take this wrong. It’s delicious but cumbersome. So start with a small piece. Make just one cake, unless you’re serving a crew of bus drivers. This recipe requires a mixer unless you have someone that could keep a steady quick whipping for 10 minutes.
- 250g/250ml coconut fat/oil
- 250g dark chocolate
- Two eggs
- 3 tbsp. sugar
- One shot of espresso
- Jelly top candy
- Plain sweet biscuits

- Have chocolate with the shot of espresso in a small casserole pot. Heat it up to low heat.
- Heat up the coconut fat/oil on low heat in a separate casserole pot.
- Whip eggs and sugar for 5 minutes at full speed.
- Add the melted chocolate and espresso mix with the egg and sugar mix. Mix this for another 5 minutes.
- Keep the mixer going at full speed, and very slowly add a tiny stream of coconut fat/oil in the chocolate mixture. If you do this too fast, the oil and batter will separate. It will still taste good if it separates, but won’t look as good.
- Cover a bread form in tinfoil.
- Now layer up chocolate, with biscuits and Christmas Candy Crush. Maybe throw in some marzipan between the layers of chocolate.
- Cool the cake in a fridge for 8 hours.
- Now remove the tinfoil and just add a baking paper around the cake.
Store in a fridge until you want to slice 1cm thick slices.
Summary If you love way to much chocolate this is the treat you have been looking for. So heavy it might ruin Christmas, but what else should you do during the days off? Everybody needs a diet before spring right?
