Kalter Hund (German Chocolate and Cookie Dessert)

“This German dessert is very popular at birthday parties and potlucks. It features plain cookies, chocolate and in this variation of the classic also bananas for a fruity touch. Usually it contains eggs and/or copha, but this version is vegan and also copha-free! :) Feel free to use your favourite plain vegan cookies in this. Note please: This needs to chill for at least 3 hours.”
1 small loaf pan

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 150 ml rice cream (soy might also work, but I have not tried that, if non-vegan just use regular cream)
  • 250 g bittersweet chocolate, broken into pieces (make sure its vegan)
  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 100 g vegan cookies (I used digestives)


  1. Heat your rice cream on the stove-top or in the microwave (I used a microwave-safe bowl and heated the cream at 765 watts for 1:20 min).
  2. Add in the chocolate pieces and stir until smooth.
  3. Line a small loaf pan (about 7X3 inches) with cling film and start assembling your dessert by covering the base of the pan with chocolate.
  4. Continue by layering cookies, banana and chocolate into the pan until you have used up everything. The last layer should be chocolate (I got 9 layers in total).
  5. Place dessert in the fridge and chill for at least 3 hours, best overnight.
  6. Slice and enjoy. :) Its great with additional fruit.
