I saw this on Facebook and thought I'd share. Take it with a grain of sale (pun intended!), tho. I converted the grams (this was an Aussie recipe) using an online conversion calculator. Please note the footnotes for caster sugar and creme fraiche if you are not familiar with them. Well, like I said--I haven't made this particular recipe, but thought it was interesting, so I shared. Plus the ganache recipe is right on there. Anyway, was just having some fun with this after I saw it . . .

Chocolate Mud Cake

It’s moist and chocolaty. The recipe makes two 10-11 inch cakes.
Serves: 16-20 Preparation time: 15 mins Cooking time: 30-35

1 cup butter (room temperature)
1 cup caster sugar**
1 cup light brown sugar
8 medium eggs (room temperature)
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
generous pinch of salt
10 tablespoons sour cream (5/8 cup)
2 teaspoons good vanilla extract

Three 4.5-ounce Giant Kit Kat Bars (you'll need 36 Kit Kat sticks total)

1. Pre-heat the oven to 350F and prepare two 10 or 11 inch cake tins with baking parchment.
2. Sift dry ingredients together.
3. Cream butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
4. Gradually beat in the eggs. If it looks like curdling add two tablespoons from the flour mixture.
5. Fold in the flour mixture, and creme fraiche**, alternating between the two--starting and ending with the flour.
6. Divide evenly between tins and gently encourage the mix to the sides.
7. Bake for 30-35 mins, until they smell ready and a skewer comes out clean.
8. Let cool 5 mins in tins, then turn on to a wire rack to cool.

There was some confusion with the original the recipe for the Choc Mud Cake as it did not include any recipe for the icing. I assume it is just a Dark Choc Ganache Icing and I imagine the piggies are made of marzipan or sugar paste. I would ice the sides, put the kit kat fingers in place and then ice the top

Here is a quick and easy recipe for a Choc Ganache Icing.

1 cup dark cooking chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup cream

Step 1
Combine chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir with a metal spoon until smooth. Remove bowl from heat.
Step 2
Set aside at room temperature to cool, stirring occasionally, until ganache is thick and spreadable.

*Caster sugar is a superfine sugar--in between granulated sugar and powdered sugar. It absorbs and dissolves better than granulated sugar. Some consider it essential for meringue making. You can make your own with granulated sugar in a food processor, but if you have a plastic bowl it will scratch it up.

**Internet sources use sour cream in replacement of creme fraiche if you can't find it in the store or don't want to make it. Someone else said they used the Philadelphia Cooking Cream and it worked great without separating at high temperatures.
