Dish of the Week – Chocolate Melting moments

choc biscuits.jpg

Hello to all Zebra tenants and families.

These melt in the mouth chocolate biscuits are really a chocolate lovers dream.

The biscuits have a very short texture almost like a shortbread, but the whipped chocolate filing is a delicious combination.

 

We used milk chocolate for the filling but I think dark would have worked well.

Do be careful when melting the chocolate for the filling not to overheat the mixture, if overheated the chocolate and butter will split.

 

These melting moments are for serious chocoholics, so enjoy.

 

Happy baking

 

Guten Appetit
