Part one:

1 cup heavy cream

8 oz quality chocolate

1 tsp vanilla

  • Over a double boiler, blend and warm ingredients until melted.

Part Two:

1 pound of cake and/or cookies coarsely crushed into pieces

(Nilla Wafers & biscotti work well)

2 oz soft figs, chopped

2 oz dates, pitted & chopped

2 oz dried cranberries

4 oz toasted almonds, sliced

4 oz toasted rough chopped hazelnuts

½ tsp salt

  • Toss together and then fold into bowl of chocolate.

Part Three:

Place sheet of parchment paper (or plastic wrap) on counter. Place half the chocolate mixture on the center of the paper. Using a spatula, form the mixture into a log approx 2” in diameter.  Repeat with the remaining mixture. Twist ends to seal the ends of each log. Roll logs back & forth on counter to make logs evenly round.  Refrigerate until firm (about an hour).
** At this point, you can freeze logs for up to a month. Thaw at room temp for 25 mins. **

Part Four – preparing to serve:

Spread confectioners sugar onto a cookie sheet. Unwrap logs and roll them in sugar to coat. Use a dry pastry brush to brush away the excess sugar.  Let logs sit at room temp for about 15 minutes.  Using a sharp knife, slice logs into ½ “ thick slices and serve.
