Linda's No Bake Birthday Cake

The recipe for this very rich chocolate birthday cake was made specially for our good friend Linda's birthday.

1 Large page of digestive biscuits
1 pack shortbread biscuits
2 large cans of evaporated milk
1 pack of butterscotch instant pudding mix (of the type to be made with cold milk)
5 bars of chocolate
1 to 2 ounces of butter
Icing, if desired

Crush all the biscuits to a reasonably fine powder.
Then melt the butter in a pan and add the biscuit powder and the butterscotch powder and mix very well.
Remove from heat, place mix in large, deep greased cake tin.
Add the evaporated milk and mix well.
Use a double boiler (if available) to melt 4 bars of chocolate and when totally melted vigorously swirl this through the mix in the cake tin.
Smooth surface, break up fifth chocolate bar and use to decorate the surface, gently pressin in to mixture.
You can add icing to decorate, Dr Oetker's ready-made cake icing is ideal.

Then place in the fridge over night or for several hours.

This is a very rich cake and should prove popular!

Serves well with ice cream and individual portions can be heated in the microwave.
