The Greek version of yule log!

Kormos literally means “log” in greek, (known as Mosaico as well) is actually none other than the Greek version of yule log! Made with chocolate and biscuits, it is a traditional Christmas dessert even in Greece! Certainly belonging to my list of all-time classics, I recall my mommy and grandma making and serving this ice-cold treat ever since I was a little kid, and my impatience to taste it while waiting for it to chill!
