Chocolate Yule Log: Christmas Day Sweet Freedom Treat:


  1. Firstly, line a Swiss roll tin with non stick baking parchment and preheat the oven to 180C/Fan 160C.
  2. Secondly, whisk together the egg yolks, Sweet Freedom and vanilla extract until it is pale, creamy and very thick.
  3. Using a clean whisk, whisk the egg whites, in another bowl, until they form stiff peaks.
  4. Sieve the cocoa powder over the egg yolk mixture and fold in. Then carefully fold the egg whites into the mixture.
  5. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and cover with a piece of non stick baking parchment and a damp tea towel. Leave to cool.
  7. Mix together all the ingredients for the filling.
  8. Tip the cold roulade out onto a sheet of baking parchment, peel off the baking parchment from the base and sides of the roulade and spread the chestnut filling over the base.
  9. Roll up the roulade from the longest side using the sheet of baking parchment to guide the roll.
  10. To make the topping, mix together the Sweet Freedom, Brandy and double cream and then mix in the cocoa. The cocoa will thicken the mixture.
  11. Place the roulade on a serving plate and spread the chocolate topping over the top and sides.
  12. Use a skewer to draw wiggly lines in the topping to give the appearance of bark.
  13. Last but not least, chill until required.
