  • Grind the cookies (1 package) into fine crumbs in a blender or a food processor. Crush another package of cookies roughly by putting the cookies in a plastic bag and crushing with a rolling pin.

  • Combine the cookies, chopped nuts, dates, raisins, glaced cherries, cocoa powder, liqueur, grated chocolate and ground spices in a bowl. Then add the condensed milk and mix well. Give the chocolate mass the shape of a log by making a roll. Cover with a food wrap and refrigerate overnight.

  • After a while, cover the cake with the melted dark chocolate. Draw the lines with a fork to imitate a tree bark. Then, sprinkle the cake with a bit of powdered sugar and decorate with glaced berries, if desired.


  • You can store the Christmas Iog covered with a plastic food wrap in your fridge for 3 days.

Bon Appetit!
