I would call this a Punschrulle, my mother calls it a dammsugare, which translates to vacuum cleaner because it is said no resemble it, I'm not too sure that it does, whatever you call it, it is by far one of the most delicious of the Swedish sweets and was always my pick of choice at the bakery.
Swedes are mad for marzipan and this boozy truffle filled roll flavoured with swedish Arrak or Punsch is then wrapped in the almondy good stuff before finally being dunked into rich dark chocolate on either end, sure you have to go for a run before you have one but it is worth it, the worst part is that one is never enough.
You will need:
For the filling
250g vanilla biscuits
100g of melted butter
1 1/2 tsp of maldon salt
50ml of Swedish Arrak (if you cannot get hold of it substitute with more amaretto)
50ml of amaretto
200g of melted dark chocolate
6 tbsp of icing sugar
For the outer layer:
a pack of marzipan, coloured to the hue of your choice
200g of melted Dark chocolate
Icing sugar to dust the work surface so that marzipan does not stick.
Firstly place all of the biscuits into a food processor and blitz until they resemble fine bread crumbs. Meanwhile melt the butter and chocolate together in a pan over a low flame, pour the mixture into the food processor and then add the salt, booze and the icing sugar, place the filling into the fridge for at least half and hour until it is firm.
Dust the work surface with icing sugar and roll out the marzipan until it is roughly half a cm thick, using the filling make a log shape all the way along the marzipan (yes it looks like poop), wrap the filling in the excess marzipan (see image), use a little water to help the marzipan stick and seal together. Slice 3 inch rolls, roll each roll delicately with your hands until they are inch this cylinders and then half them with a knife.
