Pistachio and Coconut Chocolate Log 1341 1788 Rouba Shahin Middle Eastern Cooking

Pistachio and coconut chocolate log are very popular in the Middle East.  In fact, I believe every region and ethnicity has their way of making it.

No baking is required, it’s so easy that anyone can make it. Such a simple dessert, all the ingredients are combined and you’re done.  It can be prepared and kept in the freezer to take out when unexpected guests arrive.

So if you love no-bake desserts? Give my famous biscuit cake a try or for more of a Middle Eastern Style Dessert, the Arabian Milk Pudding is super easy to make.

Cook’s note

*You could slice, wrap individually or place in an airtight container in the freezer. Every time you crave a slice you simply take one.
*If kept in the freezer, place at room temperature for a few minutes before cutting and serving.
*This is the perfect recipe to make with kids.  They will definitely love helping you make this.
*You can substitute with any plain biscuit if Arnott’s biscuits are not available in your country

Step 1
Spray and line 2 x mini loaf pans (14.6 x 7.62 cm) with baking plastic wrap (make sure all 4 sides are lined).

Break the biscuits into small pieces using your hands. Don’t crumble the biscuits.

Step 2.
In a medium bowl combine all ingredients and mix until well combined and biscuits are well covered (this is the messy step).  Fill loaf tins with the mixture, pressing down firmly (wet/wash hands if it gets too sticky). Smooth the top and place it in the freezer for 2-3 hours.

After freezing, remove the chocolate log from the lined tin, place at room temperature for a few minutes, cut into pieces, and serve.
