Do you still have a pandoro packaged in the pantry? Time to consume it! However, transform it into delicious snacks that can also be frozen
After the holidays, it's time to recycling! If you still have a whole Pandoro to be consumed and you are tired of soaking it in latte at breakfast, prepare one snack greedy that you can also freeze.
Children, but not only, will go crazy for these swivels.
The swivels we want to offer you are very similar to the famous snacks on the market because they have one inside hazelnut spread cream and are covered with melted chocolate on one side only.
The great thing about this really easy recipe is that it is prepared with only three ingredients is that you can also achieve it with other fillings, for example jams of all kinds and dried fruit spreads.
Pandoro rolls recipe
A classic Pandoro, 200 g of hazelnut spread, 200 g of dark chocolate
Cut the pandoro not into slices as usual, obtaining wedges with the tips, but in section in the sense of height.
Then divide it exactly in half and then each half again into other slices.
Use the widest slices for the swivels which will have a more or less rectangular shape.
Remove the base which has a harder and more cooked crust and roll out each slice with a rolling pin.
Spread a generous amount of hazelnut cream on each slice and roll it up on itself with the base on the short side in order to obtain short rolls, but with a wider diameter.
Wrap each roll in cling film and let it rest in the refrigerator for two hours.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a bain-marie and let it cool a bit.
Cut the roll into slices about two cm thick and dip a part of each swivel in the chocolate.
Let it cool before consuming.
You can freeze the swivels and defrost them if necessary by taking them out of the freezer two hours before.
Swirls with white chocolate and jam
Don't you love the hazelnut cream filling? You can replace it with a jam of your choice or with other spreads.
If not even the melted chocolate coating convinces you, use it White chocolate, or with milk.
If you want to make the swivels even richer, place them inside or on the surface decorated with the chocolate from grain.
Another very interesting filling could be based on custard with lemon or cocoa. And why not also try to turn them into cassatine with ricotta and candied fruit?
Swivels with panettone
Same thing you can do with the panettone even if the swivels will be richer being the basic panettone stuffed with raisins and candied fruit.
But the procedure is the same: cut the panettone in section in height and then roll out each slice with a rolling pin.
Spread the cream, roll it up and wrap everything in plastic wrap.
Log to freeze
Once you have created the roll with a pandoro base, or panettone, instead of cutting it out to obtain swivels, you can also cover it with melted chocolate and then store it in the freezer for the next occasion.
The log it is a dessert that always puts everyone in agreement. Very scenic, but very easy to prepare.
Just defrost it a few hours before serving. Obviously, once thawed, it must be consumed within 24 hours.
