NAKED NESTLÉ CHOCOLATE LOG
This Recipe Makes 16 Bars
Naked Nestlé Chocolate Log is my version of the irresistible Chocolate Log that was brought to us South African’s by Nestlé. Sadly, it was announced on Tuesday 14 July 2020 that this chocolate treat of 50 years is discontinued.
This chocolate bar had creamy marshmallow on crisp wafer & was covered in milk chocolate – delicious right! It used to retail for around R12.99 each for a 46 gram bar.
There are many lovers of this chocolate so I figured why not create your very own whenever the craving hits. I did not coat the whole bar in chocolate, hence why I am calling them “Naked” but by all means if you want to coat the whole bar in delicious chocolate then you have yourself a legit Chocolate Log.
Naked Nestlé Chocolate Log Ingredients:
- 30 white medium marshmallows
- 1 tablespoon water
- 175 grams vanilla wafers
- 150 grams plain milk chocolate
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- Prepare a square casserole (big enough to fit as many wafers as you prefer) by adding a layer of wax/parchment paper.
- Using some spraying oil, thoroughly spray the wax/parchment paper.
- Next, bring out the vanilla wafers. Other flavours may be used if proffered but I chose vanilla to make them more authentic. I also used the Woolworths brand as their wafers are more of a “chocolate bar shape”,
- Line the vanilla wafers at the base of the casserole, side by side & it should be a tight fit (no gaps). I used 16 of the wafers.
- Next, it’s time to put the white marshmallows into a microwave safe bowl.
- To the marshmallows, add in the 1 tablespoon of water.
- Pop it into the microwave for 30 seconds.
- Give it a mix, it should be partially melted at this point.
- Pop the bowl back into the microwave for another 30 seconds.
- Give it a mix once again.
- It should be melted completely with a creamy texture.
- Plop the melted marshmallows or marshmallow fluff over the lined wafers.
- Use a spatula & evenly spread the marshmallows.
- Place the casserole into the refrigerator for 15 minutes. This will allow the marshmallows to become more firm & less sticky.
- After 15 minutes, bring out the chocolate. I used the Cadbury slab because I could not find any plain Nestlé Chocolate on hand.
- Break the chocolate into pieces & place it into a microwave safe bowl.
- To the chocolate, add the 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.
- Place the bowl into the microwave & heat for 30 seconds.
- Give it a mix. The chocolate should be partially melted.
- Add it back into the microwave & heat for another 30 seconds. Give it a mix & it should be nice & melted.
- Next, bring out the casserole from the refrigerator.
- Pour the melted chocolate over the marshmallows.
- Spread the chocolate evenly.
- Place the casserole back into the refrigerator & allow the chocolate to set. It can also be put into the freezer to speed up the setting process.
- Grab the wax/parchment paper by the ends & pull it out of the casserole placing it onto a board or counter top.
- Thereafter, carefully remove the wax/parchment paper, making sure there aren’t any bits on the chocolate or marshmallow,
- Place another sheet of wax/parchment paper over the hardened chocolate.
- Carefully flip the whole block so that the wafers are now on top.
- Peel away the layer of wax/parchment paper that is covering the wafers.
- Using a sharp knife, cut alongside each of the wafers, making sure to go all the way through. This will give the bar shapes.
- Once again, place a sheet of wax/parchment paper over & flip it over.
- Break off each of the cut out bars.
- These Naked Nestlé Chocolate Log bars are ready to be devoured.
- Whilst they are in this form, they can be dunked into melted chocolate & left to set in the refrigerator or freezer to create the authentic Chocolate Logs.
