Apricot Marshmallow Christmas Log
We all like Christmas fare that requires no baking. Here is a tasty log that is sweet requires just a few ingredients and can be made rather quickly.
200 grams dried apricots (chopped into small pieces)
100 grams white marshmallows (chopped into small pieces)
250 g plain sweet biscuits (marie, nice or similar) and crush these with mortar board and pestle, or the side of a rather large kitchen knife or place in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling-pin or some other firm object you have in the kitchen. I tried a hammer once wasn’t such a good idea the bag broke open 🙂
150 grams walnuts (chopped into small pieces you could substitute with brazil nuts, walnuts are easier to chop up)
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
400 grams sweetened condensed milk
1 cup toasted dessicated coconut (Lightly toast coconut in a moderate oven -148 degrees celsius or 300 degrees Fahrenheit or in a pie dish until golden approximately 6 minutes)
Method: Take out your baking bowl, mix together the apricots, marshmallows, biscuits, walnuts, vanilla essence and the sweetened condensed milk. Combine until smooth. Divide the mixture into quarters 4 pieces, shape each piece into a log shape or tree trunk shape or cylinder (each log will be about 3 centimetres in diameter approximately the length of your thumb). Once combined roll each one in the toasted coconut. Wrap each log in aluminium foil or tin foil. Place in the refrigerator until firm.
