Ingredients for 6 servings

For the brown coat

  • 15 dkg minced biscuits
  • 10 dkg powdered sugar
  • 5 dkg margarine
  • 5 dkg dark chocolate (melted)
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 20 ml cream

For the red and green layers

  • 15 dkg minced biscuits
  • 10 dkg powdered sugar
  • 5 dkg margarine
  • 20 ml cream
  • 10 drops of food colouring (red, green)
  • 5 teaspoon golden pear aroma
  • 5 drops of bitter almond aroma

For the white coat

  • 10 dkg coconut shavings
  • 8 dkg powdered sugar
  • 5 dkg margarine

Instructions

For the brown layer, mix the minced biscuit, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder. Mix it all together with the margarine, then knead it, adding a little cream and 5 dkg of melted chocolate. Add enough cream to make it easy to stretch, but not too soft.

For the red and green layers, add the icing sugar to the minced biscuits, crumble the margarine into it, and add enough cream to make it firm. Then divide the mixture in a way so that you have a little bit more of the red mixture. To the red layer, we add the golden pear aroma and the red food colouring. To make the green mixture, add the green colouring and the almond aroma. If the aroma makes it too soft, just add more crumbled biscuits. For the white layer, mix the coconut with the powdered sugar and margarine.

Spread the dough between 2 non-stick baking papers (8mm). Let’s roll it up! Start with the green dough and roll it up gently. Then wrap the white dough around it, then the red one around the white roll, and finish with the brown one. Wrap your roll tightly in foil and allow it to cool well. Slice with a sharp knife. You can make it look ribbed with the help of a toothpick, making it look more like a cockade.
