Chocolate Melting Moments
Been making these quite a bit recently. Ridiculously quick and easy to make, yet taste as good as any you could buy.
125g Butter (softened)
100g Plain Flour
50g Icing Sugar (sifted)
25g Cocoa Powder
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (I don’t have to do this cos Agas rock!).
Beat the butter until it’s really, really soft. Keep going until it’s a shade lighter than you started with. Add all the dry ingredients and mix until it’s a firm dough. If the bowl is clean, that’s generally when you’ve got it to the right consistency.
Grab pieces of the mixture and roll into small balls. Just slightly larger than a Malteser™ is about right. Place these on a baking tray covered in greaseproof paper or baking parchment. Once you’ve rolled all the mixture into balls and put it on the tray, dip a fork into cold water and flatten the balls. This makes them look a bit more biscuity and gives them a nice texture.
Cook them for about 10-12 minutes. Let them rest on the tray for about 5 minutes then leave on a wire rack to cool completely. Once they are cool, sandwich them together using chocolate spread.
I would post up a picture of them, but they seem to get eaten before I have the chance!
