This is one of our Christmas/all year favourite slice! Few years ago I discovered the addition of Turkish Halva (Helwa tat-Tork) which makes this dark luscious slice even more delicious! Quantities make 1x40cm log and a smaller roll of approx 15cm which disappear before the day is out.
180g Crushed Malt Biscuits (Morning Coffee)
80g Whole Roasted Hazel Nuts
150g Turkish Halva
397g can sweetened condensed milk
50g cocoa powder
75g Icing Sugar
40ml Kahlua or other Coffee Liquor
Extra Icing Sugar for Dusting
Add dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Using a fork crush the turkish halva leaving some bits the size of a hazelnut. Stir the ingredients to have a combined mix. Add condensed milk and Kahlua, then using a metal spoon stir the mixture slowly to obtain a stiff paste. Spoon mixture over a grease proof paper, then fold over the paper to form a roll approximately 40cm long and 7cm diameter.
Transfer the log to serving plate. Using the back of a spoon cover the roll with Nutella to create a rough bark effect. Chill for about 2 hours then dust with icing sugar. Chill overnight before serving.
Log keeps well in the fridge for up to three weeks but I wonder if it will last that long!
