Summer Roll

A Summer Roll may mean something very different depending on where you are in the world or where you grew up. In Australia and New Zealand, it means the chewy nougat confectionery roll available from a milkbar or supermarket. It was very popular back in the 70’s, and is still available today.

We originally made this recipe at Bake Club, after the lovely Gaye brought the recipe along to share. I’m not sure where she got it from, but it really does taste like a summer roll. We made this one with milk chocolate, but you might also try it with dark.  Sometimes I like to go to the dark side…  😉

Update (Feb 2019)

Giving credit where credit is due.  I think this recipe may have originally come from Thermofun.  I did look everywhere on Google to give the author credit but couldn’t find anything under summer roll.  What I did learn was that what we (in Australia) call Vietnamese rolls are called Summer rolls in other countries. We eventually found a reference, its under Honey Nougat Log.   So if it was you that made it Thermofun, great job! We all loved it at Bake Club.  😉

  1. Do you have tips how to make this if you don’t have a thermomix? I am on the other side of the world and miss the Aussie Summer Rolls!

    1. Hi Lauren,
      Certainly, you can prepare it on the stove top in a bain marie. You’ll require a temperature probe to ensure the heat is accurate at each stage.

      When you review the method, it’s quite easy to follow, and the steps are clear. In Step 2, you need to melt your chocolate, but be careful not to exceed 50°C, or it will seize and become crumbly (burn if you like). Then, add the peanut butter and honey, stirring and warming it until the mixture reaches 90°C. After that, add the ingredients in Step 5, stirring to combine.

      I think this will all be clear to you. It’s not a long or difficult recipe, but you will need the probe to test the temperature.

      Happy Summer Roll making.
