Introduction

This is one of the best chocolate cheesecakes I know. It's my boyfriend's speciality - one of the only things he likes to make. It doesn't really involve any baking as you only crumble the cookies, mix the other ingredients and freeze the whole thing. When you want to eat the cake, take it from the freezer about half an hour before. You can just take a few slices and then freeze the cake again - it doesn't seem to mind but don't do it many times. The cake can also be decorated, for example with whipped cream "flowers" and rasberries. The recipe is from a race driver's wife who gave it to their Finnish Au Pair (if I remember the story right :) and it has since ben published in a magazine and has become very popular. And 1 dl is of course 100 ml.
