The Kinder Pinguì is one of the most popular Italian snacks since 1993 and it’s loved at every age. The recipe to prepare the Kinder Pinguì cake at home is easier than it is believed because it’s basically a chocolate sponge cake filled with chocolate cream and covered with chocolate and whipped cream. The surface is then spread with melted chocolate.
The final result differs from the shop bought one and you can both divide the cake into slices to be put in the fridge or slice it when you need it. Just make sure not to be afraid to make you and your kitchen dirty and your Kinder cake will be amazing.
