Food: Chocolate & liquorice pinwheels

With the huge influx of Nordic stuff on TV recently, heres a handy recipe for a pastry perfect for watching the latest Scandi drama (with a kaffe of course- a la Fika) 😉

To make, you’ll need:

  • 1 pack of ready rolled puff pastry
  • 4tbs of homemade chocolate & liquorice ganache (made here)
  • 1tsp soy milk
  • 50g soft eating liquorice, chopped finely

To glaze:

  • 2 tsp soy milk

 

Making could not be easier! Simply, unroll a pack of pre made puff pastry and keep it on the paper lining – this will make cleaning up much easier. Spread the ganache, mixed with a little soya milk, evenly over the pastry and sprinkle as liberally as you like with small, chopped nuggets of liquorice. Using a pizza cutter (knives have a tendency to bunch the pastry and make life difficult) cut the pastry into 6 or 8 strips, depending on how tall you want them, and roll into individual spirals. Dab a little soya milk on each one for a glaze.

Place them evenly and spread out on a baking tray lined with baking paper and cook at 180c for 12 to 15 minutes – or until golden brown. The coils should unravel and begin to burst at the seams. Serve warm with coffee.

Enjoy Fika!
