Don’t I have a special treat for you guys?

P1120282

As we end the week, I managed to make this delicious, coffee -chocolaty with a coconut flavored touch of a “NO BAKE” Swiss roll that anyone can make within minutes.

We could debate all day, why you should be making your own dessert rather than going to a cafe and buying it. Its much more preferable once you get all the concept of that particular recipe, the approximate if not exact quantity and just learn the skill to make it while at your comfort of your home. Baby steps, totally no rush. Let’s take one day at a time to get there shall we?

For now, get your hot cup of coffee, pull up a chair, have sit and look closely  since you will crave to make this at the end of this article.

3. Pour the fine crackers into a bowl and add in the coffee granules, 1 Tsp of butter {a room Temperature} and chocolate syrup – use your clean hands to mix really well, till you form a dough. {You can add a tablespoon of either water or milk to the dough if it gets too dry].

7. Carefully and slowly Fold the dough using the help of the foil. {A parch paper will be more preferable in this stage}, but feel free to use what you have. As you fold it, press on it to avoid breakages.

8. Place it in the lower section of the fridge – Over-night. In the morning, this is how it looks like. Firm and smells so damn good.
