    I'm going to write the whole recipe, but I'll give my translation attempts:

    Torta Helada de Galletas
    Ingredientes:

    2 paquetes de galletas de soda
    Manjar
    pasas
    nueces

    Preparación:
    1. Se muelen las galletas en un bol con las manos.​
    2. Se le agrega el manjar, pasas y nueces picadas.​
    3. Se mezcla de forma uniforme.​
    4. Se coloca en un molde en el refrigerador.​
    5. Luego de que esté muy frío se desmolda y decora con manjar y nueces.
    My attempt goes like this:

    Cold Cracker Cake
    Ingredients:

    2 packages of Soda crackers (this is the name they get in Chile)
    Manjar (this one doesn't have translation)
    Raisins
    Nuts

    Preparation:
    1. Grind the crackers into a bowl with your hands.
    2. Add manjar, raisins and nuts chopped.
    3. Mix it uniformly.
    4. Place in a mold into the fridge.
    5. Once it is very cold take it out of the mold and decorate with manjar and nuts.
    I hope someone can guide me.
    Thanks in advance.

    Manjar is something similar to "dulce de leche" in Argentina.

    Thanks,

    I've seen in wikipedia that it doesn't have a translation, they call it "manjar blanco".
    I'm afraid I don't like it. :(

    Bon appetit

    could be... Grind the crackers manually into a bowl
