Depending on what they are called in your part of the country, yYou’ll Need a Box of HoHo, Yodels, Swiss Rolls (by Miss) Little Debbie), or any other boxed chocolate snack cake you have access to. Grab a jar of something like edible spackle like peanut butter, canned frosting, cream cheese, or melted chocolate to help things along. stick, I used Nutella, which worked like a dream. Everything else is decor, but, honestly, the details will make it fabulously Yule-y. I wanted the little red berries in there, although chopped logs rarely have berries, yule logs certainly do. Use any red candy you like; red hots or M&Ms will work, but i cut it into pieces Australian licorice, and rolled them in three short balls. i again smoothed them down a bit so they stayed together in a cluster then glued them onto my mini logs, If you want to add a touch of green, prepare a few sprigs of fresh herbs that you probably won’t eat. I used rosemary, but small leaves of thyme or sage would be great. Powdered sugar for dusting completes your ingredient list, and looks icy.
Using a small serrated knife, saw off one ½-inch end of the ho-ho at a 45-degree angle. This will reveal the frosting swirl, and the angle makes it look better than a straight cut (I was tempted to write that the angle makes it “realistic”, but that’s ridiculous). put a small dab of your edible spackle on the closed end of the piece you cut, and glue it to the top or in favor of the HoHo log, so the icing vortex is on the outside.

Once I’ve gathered my log, I added a little more Nutella to the log, and pressed licorice berries onto it. I then glued a sprig of rosemary to the back of the berries and sprinkled them with powdered sugar to complete the look. This might be one of the cutest things to a box of Hohos, and they’re so small that both kids and adults will be compelled to have at least one. Enjoy the process, and follow the sugar-rush.
