Chocolate Biscuit Cake

The Chocolate Biscuit Cake originated when the famous Tea Men of Ireland (known to put away more than 30 cups of tea in a day) grew tired of needing to hold a chocolate bar in one hand and a biscuit in the other. This left no hand free for the cup of tea.

From this dreadful occurrence came the Chocolate Biscuit Cake. Chocolate and Biscuit in the one slab, leaving the other hand free for your 12th or 17th cup of tea.

Of course the Tea Men of Ireland have mostly died out now, replaced with Iced Coffee Men and Smoothie Men, but what still lives on today is the indulgent treat known as the Chocolate Biscuit Cake.
