This is an easy dessert to make at home that requires NO BAKING; a good treat to make with kids! I have made them a few times with my ex-boyfriend Adam, who is from Northern Ireland. They never seem to last more than a day or two as everyone eats them up. It is the perfect dessert for those who ‘can’t bake!’
Start by powdering the cookies. You can use a food processor, blender, or even just flatten them in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. It does not need to be fine ground, but this acts as the binding agent so you will want it broken down. Put it to a large bowl.
Next you will combine, by hand, all of the ingredients in with the powdered cookies EXCEPT coconut.. The consistancey should be sticky enough to form into a big loaf.
Roll a strip of cling-wrap and line it with coconut in a long, flat layer that you can set the loaf on. You will want to coat the loaf entirely [more than you think you want] with coconut and roll it tightly.
Flatten out a long piece of Saran Wrap and line it with a hefty portion of coconut to surround the entire roll. Set the roll on top and cover it with coconut (for good measure.) Roll it tightly, refridgerate overnight.
*Depending on where you are located in the world, and which ingredients are available to you; you may have to modify the recipe with similar replacements. I could not find digestive biscuits where I live, so I opted for Nilla Wafers.
