Every time we had an unexpected visitor, my mother would always pull out these silver logs from the freezer and cut up some chocolate pieces of delight. As a teenager, it was very difficult to ignore these silver packages in the freezer when I had a sugar craving and I often failed. These frozen chocolates logs are a little piece of heaven.
I have actually made this batch of chocolate logs for a friend of mine who is due to give birth this week. I hope that she will find them useful (and delicious!) with her many unexpected visitors. As they keep in the freezer you can have them in storage for months…. if they last that long!
- 1 packet Marie / Digestive biscuits / graham crackers (approx 350 gr)
- 1 tin condensed milk (approx 390 gr)
- 200 gr glazed cherries
- 250 gr mint chocolate
- 55 gr melted butter
- desiccated coconut
Chop the cherries and chocolate into relatively small pieces.
With the biscuits you can either run through a processor, or break into a plastic bag and hit / roll with a rolling pin until you have very fine pieces.
In a large bowl, mix the cherries, chocolate, biscuits, condensed milk and melted butter. You want everything combined very well.
Divide the mixture into four and roll into long logs and then roll into the coconut so it’s covered well.
Cover each log separately with aluminium foil and freeze. Slice when frozen and serve cold (if there is any left when your unexpected visitors arrive).
