Weekend Cooking: Biscuit Yule Log :)

Weekend Cooking is hosted by Beth Fish and is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs.

Today I am going to share the recipe for making a Biscuit Yule Log!!! I found this recipe at Edible Garden's blog and experimented it in my kitchen last week. This is a very simple recipe and does not involve any baking but at the same time its delicious and satisfies your craving for a rich chocolatey dessert.... :) 

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 2
Ingredients:

Marie Biscuits - 15 (You can get this in the International food section or in any Indian grocery store)
Cocoa/Hersheys Chocolate Powder - 1 tbsp
Unsalted Butter - 4 tbsp
Powdered Sugar - 4 tbsp
Instant coffee powder - 1/2 tsp
Warm Milk - 1/4 cup
Chocolate shavings - for garnish


Method:
  1. Add the coffee powder to the warm milk. 
  2. Then dip each biscuit into the milk-coffee powder solution and stack them on top of each other.  
  3. Cream the butter and sugar together and slowly blend in the Chocolate powder into the mixture.
  4. Using a knife or spoon, evenly apply/spread this mixture onto all four sides of the biscuit stack.
  5. Refrigerate it for atleast 2 hours.
  6. Prior to serving sprinkle some chocolate shavings on the yule-log.
Yummy and decadent biscuit yule-log is ready.... slice them and serve... :)
Now.... it can't get any easier than this...don't you agree??? Hope you all enjoy this dessert....


P.S: All credits (good or bad) for the pics for all my cooking experiments go to my dear husband... :)

What a clever idea for a yummy treat. I love easy and during the hot summer I love not having to turn the oven on. Thanks for sharing your experiment with us.

How easy and I love that it doesn't heat up the kitchen. Yum. Good for summer and for the holidays (when oven space is at a premium).
