- Place the eggs and sugar in a bowl and whisk over gently simmering water (do not allow bowl to touch water) until light and thick and mix leaves a ribbon trail when whisk is lifted out. Gently fold in the flour and cocoa using a spatula and finally drizzle in the melted Stork and fold in.
- Pour the mixture into a greased and lined 32 x 20cm (13 x 8 inches) Swiss roll tin and gently spread evenly.
- Bake in preheated oven 200°C, 190°C fan, Gas mark 6 for 10 - 12 minutes until springy to the touch and slightly shrinking from the sides. Remove from oven and turn out onto a sheet of baking parchment sprinkled with sugar.
- Trim edges and roll up with the parchment paper inside. Leave to cool.
- Place ingredients for icing in a bowl and beat together until smooth. Gently unroll Swiss roll and spread half the icing over. Re-roll without the greaseproof paper, then cover the surface with remaining icing. Mark with a fork to resemble a log.
- For the praline, place the ingredients in a heavy based pan and place over a gentle heat. Shake the pan at intervals until the sugar melts and turns a golden caramel colour. Turn out onto parchment paper and leave to cool. Use a rolling pin to break into smaller pieces and use to scatter over the log. Lightly dust with icing sugar.
- Decorate with marzipan holly leaves and berries if liked.
