NOTES/TIPS

Cocoa powder is optional.  If you are adding chocolate syrup that is enough.

Once prepared, store the swiss rolls in an airtight container to avoid from become too soft.

You can also use oreo biscuits or any cocoa biscuits of your choice, to make it more chocolate flavoured.

Add nuts like cashewnuts or any dry fruits of your choice.

You can refrigerate outside the freezer too.  In that case,  keep it in the fridge for 4 hours to set.
