Swedish No Bake Punsch Rolls AKA “Dammsugare”

Delicious, creamy, rich little treats made with leftover cake, and flavoured with chocolate, marzipan, and punsch. A Swedish classic nostalgic to any Swede and delicious to everyone!


  • 50g / 1,75 oz butter or margarine, room temperature
  • 60g / 2,1 oz rolled oats
  • 60g / 2,1 oz powdered sugar
  • A hearty pinch of salt
  • 30g / 1,1 oz cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp strong coffee or milk
  • “Arrak aroma” or classic punsch to taste
  • 200g / 7 oz left over cake, crumbled finely (I used vanilla sponge cake)
  • 100g / 3,5 oz Vivani’s Dark Nougat, melted*
  • 200g / 7 oz marzipan (or a marzipan lid which is available in Sweden)
  • Corn starch for rolling
  • Around 100g / 3,5 oz Vivani’s Dark Cooking Chocolate + 1/2 tsp neutral oil*


  1. Using an electric mixer, start with whipping the butter, oats, powdered sugar, and salt creamy and until the oats become fine pieces.
  2. Add the cocoa, coffee, and arrack aroma, and whip until just incorporated. Then stir in the crumbled cake.
  3. Lastly, fold in the melted dark nougat chocolate. If your dough feels to dry to shape at this step, add more butter, melted chocolate, and/or coffee. Let firm up in the fidge for half an hour.
  4. In the meantime, start working your marzipan with your hands to be moldable. If it’s too sticky, knead in some corn starch.
  5. Roll out the marzipan to a 2-3 mm thick rectangle. Take dough and roll into a long roll, about 2-4cm thick, and just long as the long side of the marzipan.
  6. Place the log onto the marzipan, envelop the log in the marzipan, and cut of any excess but do make sure the marzipan fully covers the log. Repeat until all marzipan or dough is used.
  7. Cut the marzipan covered logs into smaller pieces. I like about 5cm. Place on a plate covered in plastic wrap or parchment paper.
  8. Let the mini logs chill in the fridge while you melt the baking chocolate. Once melted, add a tiny splash, about 1/2 tsp, neutral oil to give a glossy finish.
  9. Now, dip each end of the logs in melted chocolate. Let excess chocolate drip off and then place on the lined plate. Let set in the fridge, and enjoy!
