I finally made a real Snow-Swirl Chocolate Roll! Do you remember my first attempt? I set out to make it and then realized I didn't have enough baking cocoa. This time I made sure I had a good supply of cocoa! As I also had some left over cream I decided to use that as the filling instead of frosting.
The original recipe also states; frost if desired. I thought melted chocolate on the outside was a better idea! Not really, a little too rich. Maybe it was because I used dark chocolate...If I make it again I would just leave it plain.
Did you notice the pink flowers? My new platter!! A friend was getting rid of it, so I decided to adopt it.
The same day, my sister and I also whipped up a Jelly Roll. I must say, it took the prize!! As wonderful as chocolate and cream are, luscious homemade raspberry-peach jam was no competition.
Jelly rolls have always been kind of mysterious to me. But once you have made one you find out how easy and simple they are to make! A wonderful light summer dessert.
