The measures will vary according to the size of bowls you are using. I made them in individual small glass bowls and I got 8 with these measurements.

Process:

1. Put the cookies in a zip lock bag and run the rolling pin over it so that they are coarsely crushed. Keep it aside.

2. Whip the fresh cream and sugar till stiff.

3. For ganache, melt the chocolate either in a microwave or by putting in in a heatproof vessel and placing it over hot boiling water. When melted add the cream and oil if using and stirring well till everything is well incorporated. Keep it aside.

4. Now take the bowls u are using and line it first with the cookie mixture and then a layer of the whipped fresh cream. You can use an icing bag to make a layer of cream or use a spoon. Then line it with grated chocolate. Again put a cookie mixture followed by cream and top it with ganache. You can make as many layers as possible. Top it with glaced cherry.

5. Keep it in fridge for a day (See notes). The cookie mixture must absorb the moisture of cream and loose its crunchiness. Take it out of fridge 10 mins before serving.

Notes:

1. It is always better to make it a day in advance.

2. If you are making it on the same day. Keep it in freezer for 45 mins and then take it our for an hour. Keep it back in fridge until needed. The tempreture difference it will face will make the process faster.

3. While making the layer of cream, if the cream stick and is not spreading evenly then take a cup of hot water and dip a clean spoon into it and then smoothen the cream with it. Dip it in hot water as many times as neccesary.
