Kormos in Greek means tree log and has been named after its shape. A very easy dessert even a child can make.

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet (250 grams) of butter
  • 2 cups of icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup of dark cocoa
  • 3 packets of plain biscuits, such as morning coffee or petit beurre
  • 1/4 cup of Tia Maria Liqueur
  • 1 cup of evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 250 grams of walnuts chopped
  • or 125 grams melted dark chocolate  for garnishing (instead of walnuts)

Directions:

  1. Leave butter outside the fridge for 2 hours to soften.
  2. Beat butter in mixer with cocoa and sugar until fluffy.
  3. Mix in vanillas and walnuts (leave some to put on top if you like).
  4. Put milk and liqueur in a bowl and wet biscuits (but do not soak them), then break them into small pieces and add to the butter mixture.  Mix well.
  5. Cut a big piece of parchment paper and put the mixture giving it a salami shape.
  6. Sprinkle with the walnuts. Roll and fold.
  7. Place it in the deep freezer for a couple of hours before serving.

Note:   Instead of adding the walnuts, you may melt chocolate and pour it on top.

Χωρίς σχόλια on Kormos, easy chocolate dessert

  1. […] Kormos is something similar to Yule log.  Instead of using biscuits and butter, as they coookies already have a lot of butter in them I would bind them together with a chocolate cream cheese, mixed with whipped cream and add lots of nuts and dried fruit. […]
