52 Weekends No. 13 – Yule Log

T’was the weekend before Christmas, so technically I’m feet up and enjoying the holidays. However I couldn’t possibly have a Christmas with out my favourite holiday treat… the Christmas Yule Log. I love to make one of these every year and the version I make is so simple it’s just pure joy! Recipe below image.

Ingredients – shop bought Vanilla and Jam Swiss Roll, 2 100g bars of milk chocolate.

Method РUnwrap and place swiss roll on your christmas serving board, chop a large slice off the end of the swiss roll and place it on the side of the main roll. Melt all the chocolate in a Pyrex dish in the microwave or saucepan method.  Once melted, decorate the swiss roll with the melted chocolate using a pallet knife to create a log-like texture. Dust with a little icing sugar and use Rosemary sprigs to look like trees. Simple but beautiful!
