  • Plain chocolate Swiss roll (homemade or shopbought)
  • 500g Chocolate buttercream
  • 250g Chocolate of your choice
  • Icing sugar
  • Decorations if you want to add some sparkle


  1. Get your swill roll and give it a generous cost of buttercream.

  2. Melt you chosen chocolate and pour it over your swill roll. Use a spatula to give a wooden effect. Leave it to set in the fridge.

  3. Once set, use a skewer to engrave wooden marks into the chocolate. Sprinkle some icing sugar over it.

  4. Add any other decorations of your choice, I prefer to add real holly leaves to give it a Christmassy feel!
