Chocolate Mocha Log (2)harder-150x150[1]  Serves 6

  • 180g dark chocolate, broken up
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • ¾ cup double cream
  • 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 1/3 cup boiling water
  • 200g packet chocolate chip cookies
  • 250g strawberries, hulled and halved
  • Icing Sugar to serve
  1. Melt the chocolate in a large bowl in the microwave. (About 1 min 10 secs) Stir until fully melted and smooth.
  2. Cool slightly and add the egg yolks. Stir until smooth.
  3. Whisk the double cream in a mixing bowl until peaks form. Fold the cream into the chocolate until smooth.
  4. Wash and dry the mixing bowl and whisk the egg whites until stiff. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture.
  5. Cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for an hour.
  6. Add the boiling water to the coffee and stir until dissolved. Cool.
  7. Dip half of each biscuit into the coffee for no longer than a couple of seconds (so it doesn’t go soggy) and sandwich them with the chocolate mixture to form a log shape.
  8. Spread the rest of the chocolate over and around the log, carefully cover with film and chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
  9. To serve, spread some of the strawberries on the top and the rest around the bottom. Dust with icing sugar.

This is a delicious and light dessert and is great for a dinner party as you can make it hours ahead, or even the day before and keep it chilled in the fridge under cling film.
