No Bake Dark Chocolate Caramel Cake

Really easy and super delicious:No Bake Dark Chocolate Caramel Cake . This kind of cake doesn’t take a long time to make since the layers are pre made and no need to spend hours to mix and bake. However ,because the layers are made of dry and crispy graham crackers , this cake needs to sit at room temperature at least 2-3 hours to absorb the moisture from the cream.Then chill another hour in the fridge to kind of harden ,so it’s easier to slice.I usually make this kind of cake a day before, that way it slices without crumbling too much.
Hope you enjoy the recipe.
Happy No Baking:)
