A hedgehog slice is an uncooked flat, square or bar-shaped chocolate snack/ dessert, similar to a fudgey chocolate brownie but with alternating lighter and darker areas. The darker areas are chocolate flavoured. The lighter areas are crushed biscuit,[1] rice puffs, or similar. Nuts may also be added.[1] It usually has a topping of chocolate icing on which may be sprinkled coconut, hundreds and thousands, or other kinds of sprinkles (e.g. chocolate or coffee flavoured, etc.).

The dish goes by a variety of names, including Arretjescake (in Dutch, supposedly named for a cartoon character),[2] Kalter Hund, Kalte Schnauze or Kellerkuchen (in German: Cold Dog, Cold Snout or Cellar Cake), kiksekage (in Danish, literally: "biscuit cake") and radiokaka (in Swedish, named for both its resemblance to oldtime radios and its ability to be eaten soundlessly so as to not disturb radio broadcasts).
