Chocolate Marie Biscuit Log with Vanilla Ice Cream

The chocolate marie biscuit log is an old childhood favourite of my husband's. I first got a taste of it in Wellington where our neighbour fed it to us after dinner. Coupled with vanilla ice cream, it became a bit of a standard in our house after marriage. Here's how to make this.
Ingredients :

Coffee Decoction :
1 big cup water + 1 tablespoon instant coffee powder

Chocolate Sauce:

1 cup cream
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
6 tablespoons cocoa powder

Marie Biscuits
Vanilla Ice Cream
A Roll of Foil

Method :

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.

2. Make the chocolate sauce by adding the ingredients to a heavy bottomed vessel and placing it on the hob. You will need to constantly monitor the mixture as the sugar melts so that you do not burn your chocolate sauce. Wait for it to thicken somewhat then switch it off and let it cool.

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.
