Two chocolate ripple cake recipes

Chocolate ripple cakes are one of the ultimate cheat's desserts. At its most basic, all you need is a packet of choc ripple biscuits and whipped cream. Pop it in the fridge overnight and the biscuits soften and the cream thickens up to create a delicious cake-like texture. Plus, you can make it up to two days ahead if you store it in an airtight container in the fridge.
With just a couple more ingredients, make these variations for a party-worthy choc ripple cake that everyone will enjoy.
Choc Raspberry Ripple Wreath Cake
The addition of raspberry jam on the biscuits gives this version a choc-berry flavour. Stack the biscuits in the shape of a wreath, add beautiful Australian summer fruits and this dessert is ready for the Christmas table.
Choc Mint Ripple Cake
A touch of vanilla and crushed peppermint crisp turns this into a gorgeous dessert that's right on theme for Christmas or perfect for your next backyard BBQ. Add crushed candy canes for an even more festive feel.
Where did choc ripple cake originate?
Choc ripple cake is a quintessential Australian recipe. It gets its name from the choc ripple biscuits used in the base, something that you can only find in Australia.
How long do you have to wait to eat choc ripple cake?
It takes time for the cream to soften the biscuits, so you can't make it right away and then eat it. It takes at least 8 hours for the biscuits to soften, so if you're making this dessert it's best to make it the day before to give it plenty of time to sit in the fridge overnight.
How long does choc ripple cake last?
Store your choc ripple cake in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two days. Wait to decorate it until just before serving.
Can you store choc ripple cake in the freezer?
No, this isn't a freezer-friendly recipe. If you're looking for desserts to freeze, try these Choc-Mint Ice-Cream Cakes or Cherry Semifreddo with Chocolate Ganache.
Why are my biscuits showing through the cream?
After refrigerating, you might see the brown biscuits through the cream. This could be because there wasn't enough cream on the biscuits, but don't fret. You can easily fix this by adding more whipped cream on top and your dessert will still be perfect.
