  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (about 14 ounces) of chocolate sandwich cookies
  • Optional toppings: chocolate shavings, sprinkles, whipped cream



  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer.
  2. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the chopped semisweet chocolate and unsalted butter. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes to allow the chocolate to melt.
  3. Stir the mixture until smooth and glossy, then stir in the vanilla extract. Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Line the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper. Arrange a layer of chocolate sandwich cookies on the bottom of the pan, breaking them if necessary to fit.
  5. Pour half of the chocolate ganache mixture over the cookies, spreading it out evenly with a spatula.
  6. Add another layer of chocolate sandwich cookies on top of the ganache, followed by the remaining ganache.
  7. Smooth the top with a spatula, then cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until set.
  8. Once set, remove the cake from the springform pan and transfer it to a serving platter.
  9. Decorate the top with optional toppings such as chocolate shavings, sprinkles, or whipped cream.
  10. Slice and serve chilled, and enjoy the heavenly indulgence of your No-Bake Chocolate Dream Cake!



  • For a twist, try using flavored sandwich cookies such as mint or peanut butter for a unique flavor combination.
  • Leftover cake can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
