How many calories are in these Chocolate Swirls?

There are 82 calories per portion in these Chocolate Swirls, which means they fall into our Everyday Light recipe category. If you’re counting calories or following one of the popular diet plans like Weight Watchers, this recipe fits in perfectly!

NHS guidelines suggest men should aim for 2,500 calories per day to maintain a healthy body weight, and women require around 2000 calories. Each person has different calorie requirements depending on their goal, so you may want to adjust your daily calorie intake according to your own personal goal.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.

Step 2

Unroll the pastry sheet, leaving it on the greaseproof paper packaging and place it on a work surface.

Step 2 pinchofnom.com

Step 3

Spread the low-calorie chocolate syrup in a very thin, even layer over the pastry, leaving a 1cm gap along one long edge.

Step 3 pinchofnom.com

Step 4

Roll up the pastry, starting at the long edge without the 1cm gap (use the greaseproof paper packaging to help you!). Fold in the edge tightly as you start to roll; this will help you make a tight ‘Swiss roll’. When you’ve finished rolling up the pastry, make sure it’s seam-side down.

Step 4 pinchofnom.com

Step 5

Use a large, serrated knife – we use a bread knife – to cut the roll into 16 spiral-shaped slices. Carefully wipe the knife between each slice if it gets sticky with chocolate sauce.

Step 6

Carefully transfer the slices to the lined baking tray, laying them flat and leaving gaps between each. Press the seam on each to ensure a good seal.

Step 7

Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, until golden and crisp. Place on a cooling rack to cool or serve warm fresh from the oven.

Recipe notes

Tip: Make sure the pastry is chilled and comes straight from the fridge when you begin. This will make it easy to handle.
Tip: If you find your pastry has become warm after rolling, you can put the filled roll in the fridge for a short time to firm up before slicing.
