Chocolate Melting Moments

Today I am suffering the after effects of a few episodes of insomnia. Tiredness. Walking around with many things to do in my mind but without the energy or the motivation to do them. I have done what I have to and probably a little bit more on top because that is what you do right!?

I needed to bake and I thought something small and just a little bittersweet would be nice. Something that will be nice with a cup of herb tea (coffee is once again on the contraband list). Melting moments sounded good and a little cocoa to jazz them up even better.

I really should have taken the time to find the proper piping rose because if you use the wrong one like I did, they look just a little bit like something the dog would do. Still taste good though.

Chocolate Melting Moments


125 grams softened butter

2 tbsp icing sugar

2 tbsp cornflour

3/4 cup plain flour

1 tbsp cocoa


Preheat the oven to 180 deg C and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Cream the sugar and butter together.

Stir in the rest of the ingredients until combined.
Place the mixture in a piping bag fitted with a half inch rose and pipe stars onto the baking tray.

Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Today I sandwiched the biscuits together with Nutella (yuck) because the girls like it and it is easy. But a chocolate ganache made with 15 grams of butter and 90-95 grams chocolate melted together and allowed to cool and set to a spreadable texture would be even better in my opinion. Obviously I do not like Nutella.

Are you still coming to Nundle????? Can I put in an order for a batch of these delicious looking biscuits for one of night time suppers? I might let Peg have one.
