Torta Chocolate

Makes 1 (17 x27 cm) cake

1 cup Cream cheese

1 cup Dulce de leche (store bought or you can make your own by boiling an unopened can of condensed milk for 3 hours)

2 tsps Strong coffee

3 Tbsps Sugar (or to taste)

1/4 cup Whipping cream

1-11/2 (250g pack) Chocolate cookies (I used chocolate grahams but plain chocolate tea cookies are great)

1/2 – 1 cup Milk, for soaking the cookies

*Bittersweet chocolate for grating, about 3 Tbsps for each layer

250g Bittersweet chocolate, grated or chopped into small pieces

1/2 cup Cream

2 Tbsps Butter

  1. Prepare the casancrem: In a mixing bowl using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese with a paddle attachment until creamy. Add the dulce de leche, coffee, and sugar and continue beating.
  2. Change the paddle attachment to a wire whisk attachment and whip the mixture while pouring the whipping cream. Continue whipping until thick. Set aside.
  3. Soak cookies one at a time in milk and arrange a single layer at the bottom of 17 X 27 cm baking dish tray. Cover the cookies with a layer of casancrem and grate some chocolate on top. Lay a second layer of soaked cookies and repeat the process of casancrem and chocolate. Make 4-5 layers ending with the casancrem. Set aside.
  4. Heat the 1/2 cup of cream with the chocolate in a pot and stir to melt completely. Remove from heat and add the butter. Stir until chocolate is completely dissolved.  Cool slightly then pour sauce over the cake. Allow to set in the refrigerator.  Serve chilled.
