Main ingredientsCrushed biscuit, or rice puffs

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"), 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), Mozaik Pastası (in Turkish), Mosaico (in Greek) or simply keks torta (in Serbo-Croatian, literally: "biscuit cake"), Delfiakake (in Norwegian, named after one of the ingredients in-use).
