  1. Leave the coffee mixture to cool then stir in the liqueur. Quickly dip the biscuits, one at a time, into the coffee liqueur mixture. Don’t leave them too long because they become soggy. Smear one side of each biscuit with whipped cream.

  3. Spread the remaining cream over the log covering the biscuits.
  4. Melt the chocolate and drizzzle over the log and sprinkle over the chopped ginger. Chill to set before serving.
