Preparation

  • Melt the chocolate in a pan (make sure you don’t take a bite, even though you’ll be tempted to do so) with the cream and the butter.
  • Stir regularly until it turns into a smooth, homogeneous cream.
  • Add the icing sugar and the vanilla (not the whole pod, just the black seeds inside) and keep stirring.
  • Crush the cookies into BIG morsels and throw them into the mix.
  • Pour the whole thing into a cake mould (which you have previously covered with cling film or foil) and put it in the good hands of the fridge till tomorrow (minimum 6 hours).
  • At daybreak, creep into the kitchen like a stealthy wolf and devour the cake.
