I have a recipe from the UK for a chocolate fridge cake that calls for digestive bisuits?
What are they??
They are whole meal crackers. You usually can find them either in the imported foods at your supermarket or sometimes right in with the Triscuits etc. Wheatolo is a brand that comes to mind. Often the packets are round. The flavor resembles graham crackers but they are much thicker.
They are wheatmeal biscuits. Available in the cookie aisle. If you can get McVities in the red packet as Chocolate Fridge Cake was invented for these - well that and tea dunking ;-)
In San Francisco I have been able to find them in the past at Mollie Stones in the British section.
You could use graham crackers instead. It wouldn't be the same, but might suffice.
Incidentally, digestives are absolutely great spread with salty butter and topped with a sharp English cheddar cheese. Yum.
Naomi and Candy are right. Try and get McVities
if you can, as they're good. Excellant for dunking
Let me know if you can't find it.
