Coconut Roll or, Kokosov Rolat (in Serbian), is one of those recipes that has been made in our family since I can remember. It is a popular Serbian dessert which is made during all times of the year. In our family it is prepared during Christmas, Easter, New Years and Saint celebration days. This dessert brings back so many childhood memories. I love making this recipe because it is quick, easy and can be stored in the freezer for any time a sweet tooth hits! This No-Bake Coconut Roll is chocolatey and sweet with a smooth coconut filling. If you are a lover of anything chocolatey or with coconut, this dessert is perfect for you!

Coconut Roll / Kokosov Rolat ingredients

Chocolate Layer

Ah! My favourite part of this dessert is the chocolate layer. When I was younger I would purposefully remove the coconut filling and just eat the chocolate 😜. This layer is made with crushed biscuits, sugar, cocoa powder, melted chocolate and some milk.

Simply pulse the crackers until they resemble fine crumbs. Add in the sugar, cocoa powder, melted chocolate and milk. Mix until all of the ingredients combine into a smooth ball.

This chocolatey layer is sure to satisfy any chocolate lover! It is as simple as prepping all of the ingredients and combining in a food processor. No fuss required. It is quick & easy!

Coconut Filling

The coconut filling is the creamy part of this dessert. This part of the recipe is also quick & easy to prepare. It is as simple as combining all of the ingredients in one bowl.

To make this layer, whisk the unsalted butter and icing sugar until the mixture combines together.

To this, add the desiccated coconut and combine all of the ingredients together. You are looking for a well combined creamy coconut filling.

Putting the No-Bake Coconut Roll together

Transfer the chocolate layer onto the middle of a piece of baking paper. Using a rolling pin, form this into the shape of a rectangle. The chocolate layer should be roughly a ½ inch from the edges of the baking paper. Once you have distributed the chocolate layer, add the coconut filling on top. Spread out the coconut filling using a knife. Once both layers are rolled out, form a log. Start from the side that is facing you, use the baking paper to help form the log. Cover in foil and place in the freezer. Wait at least one hour before serving. This gives the Coconut Roll time to set and chill.

MAKING THE ROLL
On a flat surface, place down a piece of baking paper. Place the chocolate layer in the middle and use a rolling pin to spread this out evenly into a rectangle. Place a piece of cling wrap on top of the chocolate dough to prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling pin. Once the chocolate layer is spread out evenly, add the coconut filling on top. Use a butter knife to spread the coconut layer out evenly. This part should be slightly thicker than the chocolate layer.
Once you have spread out both layers form a log. Start from the side that is facing you and roll gently forward, use the baking paper to help form the log. Once the log is formed, cover with the foil and place in the freezer. Let the Coconut Roll sit in the freezer for at least an hour before serving. Decorate with some shredded coconut if you wish or serve as is.

Notes
Let the coconut roll set in the freezer prior to serving, it tastes best once it has become cold.

    Haven’t made it yet but looks wonderful . When you talk about rolling it out, I believe you meant to say rectangle and not triangle. This dessert will be on my Holiday list.
