“Chocotorta is a pretty popular Argentinian cake. It is perfect for summer, since it doesn’t need any baking. And although it is more common on summer months, I encourage you to eat it all year long. It is tasty, it is easy, and it takes just 4 ingredients! I recommend to make it at least 4 hours in advance, altough chilling it for a full night, or even better, a day or two, will enhance the flavours and softness. Hope you enjoy it! For any questions, drop a comment. I’ll try to answer you!”

  • Step 6/9

    Cover cookies with a thick layer (about 1/2-1 cm) of filling, then spread using a spatula.

  • Step 7/9

    Place another layer of coffee soaked cookies, this time crossing them, in order to get a smooth cake that doesn’t fall apart when cutting. Cover cookies with filling once more. Repeat until there are no more cookies left, and top with filling.

  • Step 8/9

    Once all layers are done, top with more filling. For a nice touch, grate a cookie over the cake. Cover in plastic wrap, and chill for 4 hours, or, even better, overnight. This will give it a softer texture, and enhace its flavours.
