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!

Ingredients

150 g Cream
2 Päckchen vanilla sugar
150 g dark chocolate
150 g Milk chocolate
200 g Coconut fat
250 g butter biscuits

Instruction

Loaf pan lined with cling film.
To prepare a cold dog, brush the box shape with oil and cover with cling film.

I use a box mould or a tureen mould for cold dogs. So that the cake is easy to fall out of the mould, I brush the mould with a little oil and insert cling film.

Cut the chocolate into small pieces before melting.
Cut the chocolate or couverture into small pieces.

Cut the chocolate/couver coating into small pieces with a knife, so you can melt the chocolate faster and more evenly.

Chocolate, coconut fat and whipped cream while stirring for chocolate cream.

Bring the cream and vanilla sugar to the boil and reduce by half. Add the finely chopped chocolate and mix it standing next to the stove. Add the coconut fat to a smooth chocolate cream. Use a bowl with water bath for preparation, with a little practice you can also melt it in a pot at low temperature. The chocolate mass must not get hot!

Chocolate mousse infill, first step.
Pour cold dog chocolate cream into the mold.

Pour the melted chocolate mixture into the prepared mould about the thickness of a finger.

Place the shortbread biscuits in the chocolate mixture.
Place shortbread biscuits in the chocolate mirror.

Put in the first butter cookies. Then chill the tin for 15 minutes. Pour in the chocolate mixture again and place the biscuits in it and chill for 15 minutes.

Prepare a cold dog, insert the biscuits.
The cold dog arises layer by layer. Gradually insert the shortbreads and pour the chocolate over them over and over again.

Gradually pour in the chocolate mixture and biscuits and chill again and again until the box mould is filled.

Fill the cold dog with chocolate cream to the end.
Stuffed cold dog, the last layer should be chocolate!

Pour the last layer of chocolate mixture into the mould and leave the biscuit cake to cool for several hours.
