“Cold Dog” (some also call him “Cold Snout”) is a true childhood favorite for many. The classic is prepared with butter biscuits and lots of chocolate and is traditionally made as a cake without baking. That’s why it’s particularly easy and particularly quick to make.

This also applies to our variant without coconut fat, but with waffles and raisins. You must try it. This is how the cold dog is transformed into the adult world. The recipe was invented – how could it be otherwise – by a creative grandmother. And without rum, the kids of today like it too.

Grandma’s “Cold Dog” – the recipe variant

You need it

4 egg yolks, 100 grams of raisins, 4 cl of rum, 150 grams of sugar, 250 grams of butter, 150 grams of cocoa powder, 100 grams of dark chocolate (72% cocoa solids), 100 grams of butter biscuits, 250 grams of vanilla flavored waffles, 50 grams of white chocolate, walnuts or other Garnish, salt and pepper

This is how it is done

It is best to soak the raisins in rum the day before you prepare them. The liquid will make them nice and soft and bring out the flavor.

Beat the egg yolks with the sugar, a pinch of salt and a little pepper in a bowl over a water bath and heat the mixture to 80 degrees. This is how the egg mixture is pasteurized.

Once the mass is really firm and creamy, add the butter (at room temperature!) and beat the mass thoroughly again. Now fold in the pickled raisins and the cocoa powder and mix everything carefully. You should get a smooth mass, which you set aside for now.

Place the shortbread cookies in a plastic bag and seal tightly. Then take, for example, a rolling pin or a hammer and use it to crumble the biscuits in the bag.

Then melt the dark chocolate over a water bath and stir it into the chocolate cream that you set aside until it becomes a homogeneous mass again. Then add biscuit crumbs to the cream. Mix everything carefully.

Now line a loaf pan with plastic wrap and place the first layer of waffles in it. Then put a layer of the chocolate crumbs about 2 centimeters thick. Continue alternating until both components are processed. The last layer should be the chocolate cream, which you smooth.

Now cover and place in the fridge for at least three hours.

Just before serving, melt the white chocolate and put it on the cake as a decorative topping. While the chocolate is still liquid, spread some walnuts (or other decoration) on top. Wait a moment, then the cold dog is ready to serve!
