Method

  1. For the base
  2. Crush the biscuits 20 seconds / Speed 5-7-10
  3. Add the butter in pieces, and the milk 2 minutes / 70 degrees / Speed 3 (you will need to scrape down the inside of the bowl at some stage)
  4. Grease a loose bottomed tin, and line it with the mixture, smoothing it down, then place in the fridge
  5. For the 1st layer
  6. Break the plain chocolate into pieces and place in the bowl with the sugar, milk, cream and cuajada 7 minutes / 90 degrees / Speed 5 (I found that in my cold British kitchen, it needed an extra minute)
  7. Tip onto the biscuit base and put in the fridge until it has set
  8. For the 2nd layer
  9. Without washing the bowl, break the milk chocolate into pieces and place in the bowl with the sugar, milk, cream and cuajada 7 minutes / 90 degrees / Speed 5 (again, an extra minute may be required)
  10. Drag a fork over the top of the previous layer to make ridges to help the following layer stick and not run.
  11. Tip the milk chocolate mixture into the tin, carefully spreading it evenly (without prodding) using a spatula or reverse side of a spoon. Take it to the fridge again to set.
  12. For the 3rd layer
  13. Makes more ridges over the 2nd layer, wash the bowl well so that the colours do not mix.
  14. Break the white chocolate into pieces and place in the bowl with the sugar, milk, cream and cuajada 7 minutes / 90 degrees / Speed 5.
  15. Tip into the tin and refrigerate for several hours.
  16. Once chilled un-mould it from the tin.
  17. It can be frozen whole, but do not cut beforehand or it may become gooey.

Chef's notes

The original recipe is made in a heart-shaped tin, but if you donΒ’t have one, I would suggest using an 8 or 9 inch (20 or 23 cms) round tin or a 7 or 8 inch (18 or 20cm) square one. It just depends on how tall you want it. I used a 7 inch (18cm) round one which was too small so had to bin some of the mixture. Line with Bake-O-Glide if you like, then no need to grease.

The chocolate I used was that with the highest percentage of cocoa solids I could get.

The cuajada can be obtained from R Garcia & Sons in London.
