For the cake base:
  • 130 grams of dark chocolate - 1 1/4 package
  • 40 grams of hazelnut spread or any other spread you like - 1 heaping tablespoon
  • 100 grams of rice puffs - 2 cups
For the vanilla cream:
  • 300 grams of vegan whipping cream or chilled coconut cream (using only the white part)
  • 200 grams of vegan cream cheese for spreading
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 80 grams of powdered sugar - 2/3 cup
For decoration:
  • Fresh fruits
  1. For the cake base: Melt the dark chocolate in pulses in the microwave. Once melted, add the hazelnut spread and mix well. Add the rice puffs and mix until they are fully coated in chocolate. Spread the mixture evenly in a straight layer and refrigerate until set.
  2. For the vanilla cream: Whip the cream at medium speed until it becomes soft. Add the remaining ingredients and continue whipping for about 2 minutes at high speed, until you achieve a stable cream. If the cream doesn't stabilize, you can add instant pudding mix and continue whipping for another minute.
  3. Transfer the cream to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip, pipe it onto the cake base, and decorate with your favorite fruits.
