No-Bake Chocolate Cake Ingredients

Cookies – use any of your favorite chocolate cookies

Yogurt – plain, full-fat yogurt

Chocolate – high-quality milk chocolate

Hazelnut Cream – Nutella will work

How to Make No-Bake Chocolate Cake

Prepare the cookies first. Place them in a thick Ziploc bag, and use a wooden roller to crush the cookies until you get a fine crumb.

Mix the cookie crumbs with melted milk chocolate and yogurt to form a thick ‘dough’.

Press some of the dough into a round dish to form the ‘base’ of the cake, then top with hazelnut cream.

Roll out the rest of the cookie dough. Then use it to top the chocolate cake. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.

Dust with cocoa powder and serve.


If you prefer, you can use vanilla-flavored yogurt (or even berry-flavored yogurt). Just note that the cake will be slightly sweeter.

If you prefer the cake to be less sweet, use dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate.

Don’t feel like a hazelnut filling? Use dulce de leche (or caramel spread), cookie butter (like Biscoff spread), or even vanilla custard instead.

For multiple single servings, make this dessert either in a mug or create individual servings using a muffin mold.

How to Store No-Bake Chocolate Cake

Store the cake in the fridge (wrapped or in an airtight container) for up to 4 days.

Can I Make It Ahead?

This No-Bake Chocolate Cake is a great cake to make ahead of time. Simply assemble the cake and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve it. Dust with cocoa powder right before serving.
