“I was inspired by a cook on the Food Network who made a Yule Log out of a pre-made chocolate jelly roll cake. I needed a treat for my kids' classroom Christmas parties and came up with this. Hope you like it as much as the kids did.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. We purchased Little Debbie Swiss Roll cakes-make as many as you like. I think 6-8 come in a package.
  2. Mix in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the tub of Cool Whip. Cover each swiss roll cake with the Cool Whip mixture. Using a fork, lightly pull the tongs across the whipped topping to resemble the bark design of a log. Dust with cocoa powder or sprinkle with the chocolate sprinkles.
  3. For the forest mushrooms, insert 1 toothpick through each marshmallow and then into the flat side of the chocolate kiss to form "mushroom." Dust chocolate kiss candies with confectioners' sugar.
  4. We added a Teddy Graham and small candy trees to each log for Christmas but you could add any decoration for whatever the occasion.
