A favourite post-ride snack. I think it's an old Portuguese (or possibly Spanish) recipe that would have contained sherry. Anyway, here's a contemporary French version of an old Iberian recipe. I haven't been able to provide absolute UK/US translations of all the ingredients, but I'm sure you could work them out. 200g chocolate (I used Tablette d’Or: Corsé, but any bitter chocolate would work) 100g butter 100g sucre glace (I'm sure that's icing sugar) 1 egg 10 marshmallows (chamallow in French) 150g of broken dry biscuits (type sables) optionally: 50g of plump raisins (Lexia would be great, if you can find/afford them) Melt the chocolate & butter in a bain-marie. Let it cool for about 20/25 mins. Once sufficiently cool, add the egg and mix very well, then add the sucre glace (I did this slowly). Cut the biscuits into little bits. I did this ‘biscuit by biscuit’ by hand and it takes a while. Maybe there are other, quicker ways ? Wrap in a tea towel and smash with a rolling pin? Cut each cube of marshmallow into six (or 7 or 8 or..) Then mix everything together in a large mixing bowl (and add the raisins if you're using them). Take a piece of aluminium foil – about 30cm long. Put the mix onto it and then bend the foil to make the form of a sausage (or log). This is harder than it sounds Put in the fridge for 6 hours - it should be solid.
