Chocotorta: A Traditional Argentine Dessert

Chocotorta is as ubiquitous at Argentine kids' birthdays as tears and temper tantrums are. The cake is a delightful mix of cream, chocolate, coffee and the most classic of all Argentine flavors, dulce de leche. It's all layered and chilled so it's intensely easy and very no bake. What cookies you decide to use doesn't matter too much as long as they're chocolate and get a good dipping in coffee before being layered along the bottom of the dish.

  • 15 ounces dulce de leche
  • 2 8 oz boxes of cream cheese, left out to soften
  • 2 cups brewed coffee or espresso
  • 2-3 packs of chocolate cookies, however many it takes to line your dish of choi
