No bake black forest cake is a snap to make. The hardest part is waiting for it to set in the fridge. When I have friends over for dinner, they simple love it. By all means, feel free to share the recipe. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
There are a few tips to making up this delightful no bake black forest cake. First, you should use unsalted soda crackers. Salted cracker will throw the taste way off. You could also use Graham crackers if you wish as they would add a welcomed flavour to the cake. The chocolate pudding can be made from scratch or you can buy the instant pudding mix. I prefer to make it from scratch as it’s so much nicer, and I can control what goes into it. This recipe calls for Cool Whip, but whipping cream or Reddi Whip can also be used.
