4 Ingredient Chocolate Cookie Semifreddo

Ladies and gentlemen, stop whatever you’re doing right now (unless you’re in the middle of an OITNB binge-watching session, in that case, you watch and then you listen to me #priorities) and go grab some cookies, pudding, milk and chocolate. In other words: a ticket to heaven.

Would you believe me if I told you that you can make this beauty under 10 minutes, with just 4 ingredients and that you can customise it to suit any diet restrictions and allergies you can think of??

My version is vegan since I went for vegan cookies, a soya custard dessert as the pudding part, almond milk and rice milk based chocolate for the topping, but you can customise this to your liking! Can’t have any gluten? Go for gluten-free cookies! Paleo? Grab some paleo cookies and custard… I don’t know of any store which sells those at least in Spain, but even if you’re forced to make your own, it will still be worth it!

4 Ingredient Chocolate Cookie Semifreddo - This is the best dessert ever: made in 10 minutes and with vegan, gluten free, paleo options... And it tastes so so so good!

The beauty of this semifreddo is that you can use anything that you have in hand and it will still taste like sinfully delicious. Like, you’d better have some control if you plan on standing beside this bad boy for longer than 20 seconds…

I based this recipe on the beloved cookie chocolate pie, which you must have heard about if you’ve ever attended to a birthday party in Spain, because it’s literally everywhere (literally, literally… I mean, it’s the least you can expect when you give a messy chocolate pie to a group of mischievous 4-year-olds on a hot summer day. Pie, pie everywhere).

Seriously, that’s one popular pie. And also, a really hard to get perfect one if you’re anything like me and have the decorating skills of the aforementioned 4-year-olds… Pie, pie everywhere around my kitchen. Countertops, drawers, sinks, kitchen towels, the wall… no one’s safe. 

So save yourself the hassle of trying to get a flawless layered cookie pie and ruin your kitchen and your mum’s happiness in the attempt, and go the semifreddo route in the first place. Throw everything in a bowl, freeze and eat. So much easier to make (and clean afterwards!) and every bit as delicious!

Do you think I should be offended that everyone who tried this thought that it was the very best dessert they’d put into their mouth? Let’s take into account that usually make mega complex, desserts from scratch for them… yet they concluded that this was the best one I’ve ever made and I’m not even sure that it counts as if I have made it myself??? I mean it took me 10 minutes and whichever factory made the cookies did all the work??

Buuuuuuuuuut on the bright side, they said it was truly the best thing ever and it got 10000/10 points from everyone so I guess I’ll spend the next 10 minutes doing my happy dance.

Or I could simply make another of these semifreddos… it’d just take 10 minutes too.

Write a review
  1. 2 sleeves cookies of choice
  2. 500 grams chocolate pudding
  3. 400 ml. milk
  4. 200 grams dark chocolate
  1. Soak the cookies in milk for 2-3 seconds and place a layer into the pan you're making this in.
  2. Spread a layer of chocolate pudding.
  3. Top with another layer of soaked cookies.
  4. Spread another layer of chocolate pudding.
  5. Repeat this operation until you run out of cookies and pudding, which obviously, will depend on the size of your pan.
  6. Melt the dark chocolate and cover the pie with it. If you wish, you can drizzle some milk chocolate and white chocolate on top, but that's optional.
  7. Freeze the semifreddo for 3-4 hours and serve cold!
  1. For a vegan dessert, use vegan cookies, chocolate soya custard pots (I used the Alpro brand) almond milk, dark chocolate and rice milk based options if you plan on drizzling some on top.
  2. Can't have any custard? Try nutella thinned out with milk!
  3. These quantities are orientative, use as much of each ingredient as you need.

    This looks absolutely amazing! I really want to make it and I love how there is only four ingredients! But what chocolate pudding did you use? Do you have a recipe that I could use, or do I just find one from the Internet?

    • Reply Consuelo July 1, 2015 at 3:29 pm

      As I mentioned in the recipe card I used the chocolate custard puddings alpro makes 🙂 You can use whichever you fancy if you don’t care for it being vegan. But there are also lots more of vegan brands depending on where you live!
      If you want to go the homemade route, you could try usinf my almond hot chocolate recipe (it’s on the index under the vegan category) which has the texture of pudding!
      Thank you! xx
