Coffee Decoction :
1 big cup water + 1 tablespoon instant coffee powder
1 cup cream
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
Vanilla Ice Cream
A Roll of Foil
1. Make the coffee decoction by boiling the water and adding the instant coffee powder to it. I used the 15gm Nestle packet in about 250 ml of water.
3. Now we begin the assembly of the Marie Biscuit Log. Soak a biscuit in the coffee decoction and place it on the foil. Now add a tablespoon of chocolate sauce on it. Cover with another coffee soaked biscuit.
4. Its messy work but when you have used of the packet of biscuits you will get a delicious tower. Now drizzle some chocolate sauce from the top to coat all the sides and put it into the fridge to set. Takes about a couple of hours usually.
5. Slice it up after you lay the log down horizontal. Angle the knife to get the oval shape. The ends will not be the best shape, but kids love to eat them up anyway. Now arrange your log piece in an individual bowl and add the scoops of vanilla ice cream.
One of the primary reasons that this is my "Go To" dessert very often is the fact that its eggless. Given the number of vegetarian friends that you invite home, this becomes a quick, and yummy end to the meal.
