  • Additional Information

    The vanilla or lemon juice quantities are to personal taste if you like a real lemony flavor add more or less. Same with the vanilla, use to your taste. I usually use chocolate ripple biscuits, but have also used triple choc biscuits. Basically any plain chocolate biscuit with no icing or cream will do. I like to keep ours in the freezer, it becomes more like an ice creamy, cheesecakey bar.
