FFF – Baking for Prince William

Friday, April 29th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

It’s here! Prince William and Kate’s big day. If you are throwing a royal bash, you are going to want to mix up a pan of Prince William’s favorite treat.

Thanks to the nice folks over at Daily Candy for the recipe.

Fit for a Prince!

Prince William’s Chocolate Crunch Cake
Serves eight


For the cake
1 box graham crackers
¼ c. raisins
¼ c. nuts, chopped
5 oz. dark chocolate
5 oz. milk chocolate
1 stick butter, room temp.
1 14-oz. can condensed milk

For the topping
5 oz. dark chocolate
1 tsp. milk

1. In a large metal bowl, crumble graham crackers into bite-size pieces. Add raisins and nuts.

2. In a saucepan, melt chocolates, butter, and milk. Stir frequently so chocolate doesn’t burn.

3. Add melted mixture to crackers and stir until dispersed.

4. Line an 11-by-7-inch pan with waxed paper. Pour mixture into pan; spread evenly. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

5. For the topping, combine ingredients in a saucepan; stir until melted.

6. Remove cake from fridge and cover with topping. Cut into squares and serve.
