Chocolate Tahini and Honey Log
Method
  • Heat the honey in the microwave, for 15 seconds, at 800 watts.
  • Combine the tahini and honey in a large bowl. Don’t over mix because it will cause the mixture to thicken more than necessary.
  • Melt the chocolate, either in the microwave or in a bain marie. For the microwave: cover bowl with chocolate with plastic wrap and heat for 1 ½ minutes at 800 watts. For the bain marie: place bowl with chocolate over a pot full of water that is simmering over medium heat.
  • Add the melted chocolate to the tahini-honey mixture.
  • Add the graham crackers (or digestive cookies) and crush into smaller pieces as you are mixing. Mix until they get covered in the mixture.
  • Add the cereal and cranberries and mix.
  • Lay a large sheet of parchment paper on your working space.
  • Spread the mixture over it.
  • Use the parchment paper to help you turn it into a log.
  • Roll tightly and cover the log in plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate for 4-6 hours, until firm.
  • To serve, cut into slices (about 2-3 cm thick).
  • Dust with caster sugar and serve.
  • The perfect companion to espresso.
  • You can also add some fresh fruit dusted with caster sugar.
