Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Log

Chocolate, Cranberries, and Pistachios go together beautifully in this simple no bake treat. 

This super easy no bake dessert or snack takes only minutes to prepare and is a great addition to the holiday dessert table.

This recipe is so simple that it would be a great one to get the kids involved with.

If you don't like cranberries or pistachios then they can very easily be substituted to anything else. Or, just keep it simple and have a chocolate only log. Just as delicious!

This recipe is based on one I got in Ireland; Chocolate Biscuit Cake! I had heard about this before I left and it was one of the first things I tired when we arrived. So simple, and so delicious!
