My Recipe Kalter Hund – Cold Dog, German Cookie Cake, I present to you in this post. The chocolate biscuit cake usually appears on children’s birthday parties.

It is a chocolate cake with coconut fat and the preparation goes without baking!

The biscuit cake “Kalter Hund” has many names: Lucullus, Cold Snout, Black Peter and Black Dog, for example, are common.

I know this cake prepared with butter biscuits and a cocoa coconut fat cream. Here you can get creative and try different kinds of cookies.

Invent a new cold dog family recipe! For the chocolate cream, I chose real chocolate. In the past, the cake was usually prepared with cocoa because the chocolate was too expensive.

The simple chocolate cake is even a good idea for Christmas: Try cold dog with specula, instead of butter cookies, refine the coconut chocolate mass with cinnamon and gingerbread spice.

To prepare the chocolate cream, use a commercially available coconut fat that remains firm at room temperature. Wish you good luck!
