DIY: Biscuit Roulade

Dear friends,

I think it was about time for another DIY ;) And today we shall indulge ourselves into making the most easiest sweet ever! It is called "Biscuit Roulade" - or at least I call it like that ;))) And can be done in a couple of ways and the ingredients may (slightly) vary, so you can be always creative with this recipe :)
What you need to have is:
  1. 500 ml of milk (not yogurt! and it can be around 2-3% fat)
  2. around 500 gr biscuits (that can crush nicely)
  3. raisins(or almonds or pumpkin seeds or whatever you like/wish)
  4. 100-150 gr of chocolate (you can pick what type of choco, accordingly to your taste)
  5. almond extract or any other type of essence you may wish :)
What you need to do now is sit comfortable and open your TV/Desktop/Laptop and put some music on or watch a movie while you will do the next step, as this will take a lot of time and manual work... What you will need to do is put all the biscuits in a huge bowl and start crushing them manually :)
YES! That is right! Fun time! Manually crush each biscuit into small pieces - it is alright if you have a bit bigger and if they are not even, they will help the composition stay into place. You do not need it to be all a powder, but rather small/tiny and uneven parts ;)
Next step is to start boiling the milk and bit by bit adding the chocolate that you selected.
You need to stir the pot continuously because if not, the chocolate may stick to the bottom of the pot or the composition will be uneven... it has to look like hot chocolate, my friends! And when you see it bubble a bit, like in the picture below, you can also add the raisins and stir everything up for around 5 more minutes. 
After the 5 minutes, you need to pour the hot choco milk and raisins over the crashed/crunched biscuits :) and stir and stir and stir until the milk and raisins are homogenous with the crumbs of the late biscuits. If you are not sure of the equality of the composition and if it is your first time, you can forget about the spoon and just do this with your bare hands so you can feel if there are any crumbs that were not soaked in the choco milk and raisins heaven :)
Last step is to let them calm a bit - around 5 to 10 minutes - and start wrapping them up in tin foil :) and leave them to chill in the kitchen and after a while put them in the fridge to cool down :) If you do this in the evening you can cut them the next day :) even for breakfast ;)

Hope you enjoyed the recipe and let me know how it goes ;)
Yours truly,
The DIY Wannabe Ladybug :p
