Ginger crunch logs recipe

These Ginger crunch logs are an easy no-bake recipe; these combine the Christmas-sy ginger flavour punch with creamy white chocolate.

Serving Size:

Serves 6-8



  • 1 1/4 cups crushed ginger biscuits
  • 1/2 cup (115g) caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 200g white chocolate
  • 3 tbsp red sanding sugar


Step 1. In a food processor combine the crushed ginger biscuits, caster sugar, condensed milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Process until well combined. Then to a bowl; cover with plastic wrap and chill for half an hour to make the dough easier to handle.

Step 2. Shape the dough into small logs then set aside. Melt chocolate over a saucepan of simmering water then dip logs in the chocolate, ensuring they are evenly covered.

Step 3. Set a wire rack over a sheet of baking paper on your work surface and arrange the chocolate-covered logs on this. Sprinkle them with red sanding sugar.

Step 4. Let stand until the chocolate hardens then keep in the fridge until needed.
