Not a pudding, not a custard, there is no good translation for Quarkspeise. If you can purchase the quark, a cross between yogurt and sour cream, do so, otherwise you can try this recipe with yogurt cheese.
Quark Creme is a dessert with many variations. The whipped cream can be omitted to save calories, but certainly tones down the tart flavor. This dessert is related to the English “Fool”.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

- ½ cup whipping cream, whipped
- 1 oz. grated chocolate
- your choice of fruit (optional)
Stir quark, milk and sugar together until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream and grated chocolate. Refrigerate until dessert. Serve with fruit.
Yogurt cheese: Pour 1 quart of yogurt into a colander lined with several layers of cheesecloth. Place colander in a bowl and allow to drain overnight in the refrigerator. (Yogurt should not contain gelatin or the whey will not drain.)
