I wanted to try a no bake dessert recipe for long time.I tried this recipe on Valentine’s day from LateMrs.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 pinwheels.Now I wish to try no bake pinwheel cookies too.

For chocolate layer
Marie biscuit - 10 nos
Cocoa powder – 1.5 - 2 tbsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Milk - as needed
For white layer
Dessicated coconut - 1/4 cup (optional)
Butter - 2 tbsp
Sugar - 3 tbsp
In a mixie jar,take the biscuits.Grind it to a nice powder.Now add cocoa powder,sugar and run till smooth.Make sure there are no pieces.Sieve and set aside.
Take the ground powder in a bowl and add the required milk to make a smooth,firm dough.I used 2.5 tbsp of milk.Adjust as per ur dough.
Roll this ball in a polythene sheet using a rolling pin like a thick roti.Chocolate layer is ready.
In mixer,beat the sugar and butter to make a creamy paste .Remove and add the dessicated coconut if using.
Apply this paste over the rolled chocolate layer .Leave some space in the corners and roll it tightly.
Wrap the cylinder in an aluminium foil or a polythene sheet.Freeze it for 1 hour. After it is set,remove and cut into pieces.It should not stick to the knife.If it is sticky,freeze for more time.Serve chilled !
Adding dessicated coconut is purely optional.U can add condensed milk instead of milk to make the dough.Do not add sugar if u use condensed milk.
If using condensed milk , u may need 1/2 cup.
Make sure to make the chocolate layer little thicker than the white layer.
Always Serve chilled ! Here is a cute mini pinwheel for u
