You don’t have to turn on the oven to make this no-bake cake from FAGE Total, but you do need to refrigerate it for 12 hours to set.

The fudgy chocolate is accented with coffee liqueur: Illy, Kahlúa, Tia Maria or whatever you have on hand.

If you don’t like coffee liqueur, substitute orange liqueur (Cointreau, Grand Marnier, Gran Gala, Triple Sec), rum, whiskey or spirit of choice.

The recipe allows for even more personalization:

Your choice of ingredients is mixed into the chocolate: broken cookie pieces, dried fruits (including coconut), nuts, etc. It’s an opportunity to go through the cupboard and toss in whatever you like.

Prep time is 30 minutes, refrigerator time is 12 hours.

Given the sweetness of the cake, a dollop of plain Greek yogurt or crème fraîche is a nice counterpoint.
