NO BAKE CHOCOLATE PINWHEELS RECIPE

Print Friendly and PDF
Yum

I wanted to try a no bake dessert recipe for long time.I tried this recipe on Valentine’s day from Late Mrs.Jayasree’s blog.But i couldn’t post here.Actually i followed two different recipes.One using dessicated coconut & condensed milk and the other one is this simple recipe using milk and butter.I loved both but Sendhil & Raksha din’t like the dessicated coconut flavor.So i am sharing the recipe using butter n milk which was a hit at home.Please see “Notes” for variations.
I cut in small size to make mini pinwheelsWinking smile.Now I wish to try no bake pinwheel cookies too.
