  • 400g of heavy cream (or two boxes of gourmet heavy cream)
  • 400g of dulce de leche
  • 1 cup of strong brewed coffee (unsweetened)
  • Chocolate cookies

For the Ganache Topping:

  • 200g of dark chocolate
  • 1 box of heavy cream


  1. Prepare the Coffee:
    • Brew a cup of strong coffee and allow it to cool to room temperature.
  2. Assemble the Dessert:
    • Dip the chocolate cookies briefly into the coffee just to moisten them, not soak them.
    • In a serving dish or a large glass trifle bowl, lay down a layer of the coffee-dipped cookies.
    • Spread a generous layer of dulce de leche over the cookies.
    • Repeat the layering process until all ingredients are used, finishing with a layer of dulce de leche.
  3. Prepare the Ganache:
    • Chop the dark chocolate into small pieces and place in a heatproof bowl.
    • Heat the box of heavy cream in a saucepan until it just begins to simmer, then pour it over the chopped chocolate.
    • Let sit for a minute, then stir until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Add the Ganache Topping:
    • Pour the warm ganache over the final layer of dulce de leche.
    • Use a spatula to smooth out the ganache, covering the top layer evenly.
  5. Chill and Serve:
    • Refrigerate the dessert for at least 4 hours, or until the ganache is set and the layers are firm.
    • Serve chilled, optionally garnished with chocolate shavings or a drizzle of caramel.

Enjoy this luxurious Silky Dulce de Leche Layered Dessert, a perfect blend of textures and rich flavors that will satisfy any sweet tooth!
