Kalter Hund Recipe – A Delicious No Bake Chocolate Biscuit Cake
This Kalter Hund Recipe is actually a fairly simple no-bake cake, and not the “Cold Dog” that the name implies….Layers of rich butter cookies and delicious chocolate are assembled (not baked) in a loaf pan… and then it’s stuck in the refrigerator for a few hours. Slice and serve… and wait for the applause.
This special treat cake is often served to Children in Germany (especially at a birthday party), but much like all treats, Adults love it too. (If you’d like to adjust this cake for a more adult palate, add a bit of Rum to the mixture.)
I still remember watching my mom assemble this delicious cake … and then waiting for it to be solid enough to eat. The chocolate melts in your mouth, and the biscuits add a bit of crunch.
And yes, you do need to use the coconut fat (also known as Palmin), it makes the texture perfect. Without it, the chocolate just gets too hard.
