Needless to say, this Christmas Chocolate Toffee Cake is a chocolate lover’s dream. Decadent chocolate cake with smooth and silky chocolate ganache filling and toffee bits, topped with caramel whipped cream and white chocolate curls is fancy enough to take a central place on your Christmas table!
If you love chocolate cake as much as I do, I think you’re really going to enjoy this Christmas Chocolate Toffee Cake I’m sharing with you today.
After many delicious desserts recipes I shared recently, it was high time I baked a cake, DECADENT CHOCOLATE CAKE!
I opened my Christmas baking season a long time ago while you still seemed to have a lot of time until holidays. But the time passes so quickly. I wanted to supply you with great recipes that will make planning your Christmas Baking a snap this year.
I tried to find the perfect cookies for Santa this year so I made White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies and Strawberry Shortbread Cookies. But I’m sure that Santa won’t mint if you leave him on Christmas Eve White Chocolate Cranberry Pistachio Truffles instead of cookies. They are melt-in-your-mouth good.
If you take a look at my cake recipes, you will probably notice that the majority of them have thick layer of chocolate ganache on top. I like to put chocolate ganache on top of everything, cheesecakes (Triple Chocolate Cheesecake with Oreo Crust, Reese’s Cheesecake), cakes (Oreo Cheesecake Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Pound Cake, Boston Cream Pie Pound Cake), cupcakes…
Well, chocolate ganache is the amazing chocolate concoction. Two simple ingredients, chocolate and cream, and you could make everything from glazes to truffles.
This time I did not want to settle for just one layer of chocolate ganache on top of the cake. I wanted more! This rich and decadent chocolate goodness have to be in every single bite of this Christmas Chocolate Toffee Cake. Therefore I’ve decided to use chocolate ganache as a filling for my cake.
But this is not just another ordinary chocolate cake what you’ve seen a million times! I wanted this Christmas Chocolate Toffee Cake to became a really special, festive dessert!
Therefore I’ve decided to spice things up a little bit! I made this dense but moist chocolate cake with smooth and silky chocolate ganache filling but I covered each ganache layer with a cup of toffee bits. Toffee bites take this decadent chocolate cake over the top.
Since this cake is intended to be a Christmas treat, I wanted it to be white on the outside. Christmas Chocolate Toffee Cake already has enough of chocolate flavor so I could cover it with whipped cream. But it’s not just ordinary whipped cream. I made caramel flavored whipped cream and garnished it with white chocolate curls on top. If you bake it for Christmas you could garnished it with some gingerbread cookies, the taste will match perfectly.
