  • 1 packet Arnott's Chocolate Ripple biscuits (or 250 grams of any other sweet packet chocolate cookies)
  • 300 ml thickened cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Bailey's Irish Cream (or wine, passionfruit juice or another other flavouring - adjusting the amount of flavouring depending on what you're using)
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped walnuts (or shaved chocolate, toasted coconut or another topping)


  • Whip cream and Baileys (or other flavouring) until peaks form.
  • Smear cream along serving plate. Dollop cream on biscuits (generously) and sandwich the biscuits together with the cream so that they stand on their edge to eventually form a long log.
  • Cover the log with remaining cream and sprinkle with walnuts or your topping of choice.
  • Let stand overnight in the fridge (or at least for 6 hours).
  • Slice diagonally to serve.
