Yule will be here on December 21st. Many Pagan families will be celebrating this Sabbat with rituals, gifts, and a large feast. The Yule log is a traditional symbol of this Sabbat. Edible Yule logs have become a popular dessert or treat. The following are some ideas for making eatable Yule logs.
Pretzel Yule logs
Yule logs made from pretzels are easy to make and taste good. Wal-Mart stores sell Candiquik chocolate and vanilla candy coating. These are very easy to use. The bars of chocolate and vanilla only need to be microwaved according to the directions on the package.
Dipping pretzels can be coated with chocolate or vanilla Candiquik and placed on parchment paper to harden. These make tasty Yule log treats. Pretzel rods can also be used to make edible Yule logs. Dip half of the rod into the melted chocolate or vanilla. Dip the coated end of the pretzel into holiday jimmies or other holiday sprinkle candy. Place them on parchment paper until hardened.
Cookie Yule logs
Sugar cookie dough can be rolled into 2-4 inch logs and baked in a 350 degree oven for 12-14 minutes or until they are golden brown in color. After baking, cool the cookie logs. Dip one end of the log in Candiquik chocolate or vanilla then place the coated end in holiday sprinkle candies. Place the cookies on parchment paper so the chocolate can harden.
Cake roll Yule logs
Chocolate, pumpkin, gingerbread, or any other kind of cake can be made into a yule log. These logs can be frosted and decorated for the Yule Sabbat. Premade Swiss rolls can also be frosted and decorated for the same purpose. Some supermarkets may sell premade Yule logs during the holiday season.
