There’s no meat in this. It’s basically chocolate, butter, broken up biscuits and whatever else you want to throw in such as, nuts, raisins, coconut etc. It’s great for summer because there’s no baking required and it’s so easy I get my 12 year old to make it.
- 1½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 6 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces, at room temperature
- 1 cup plain biscuits (cookies) broken into small pieces
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 2 tablespoons of espresso coffee or coffee-type liquor such as Kahlua
- ¼ cup white chocolate, roughly chopped
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
- ½ cup confectioners sugar
Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips and butter in a heat-proof bowl set over barely simmering water. When it is completely smooth and melted, mix in biscuit pieces, vanilla essence and coffee or liquor. This is also the time to add any nuts or whatever else you might like to add. My son and I prefer to make it plain except for the addition of white chocolate but don’t make the mistake we made. Wait until the mixture has cooled down before adding the white chocolate, otherwise it will melt and then no one will know it’s there and then what’s the point?
Sprinkle the unsweetened cocoa on a sheet of wax paper. Scrape the mixture onto the wax paper and create a log by rolling the mixture (within the wax paper so you don’t get your hands dirty at all) back and forth. Twist the ends to seal. Place in the refrigerator until firm, about 1 hour. When you’re ready to serve, roll the log in confectioners sugar. If it’s too firm to cut, leave it at room temperature for about 20 minutes, then slice.
Makes about 8 servings.
