Chocolate wraps

Good morning!

It has been indeed a long time.. too long actually. As usual whilst trying and hoping for some inspiration to hit me to write a self reflection (why the hell do they make us write these things?) I found something else to do 🙂

I found an italian recipe but I changed it and made some sort of cookie instead.

INGREDIENTS:

250 g flour+ some extra to work with whilst kneading

30 g sugar+ extra to sprinkle

125ml milk

50 gr soft butter

1 egg yolk

200 gr chocolate (jam or chocolate spread)

Oven on at 220°

In a bowl mix flour, sugar milk and combine until it becomes a smooth dough then add the butter. Make a ball and let it rest for half an hour. Sprinkle some flour on a counter top and knead the dough. Roll the dough out, make it 1-2 cm thick and then cut it into rectangles.

I made half of the dough rectangles and half squares so I could make different shapes 🙂

Once you have all your squares, place chocolate in the middle and fold. There is no right or wrong way of doing it so you can be as creative as you like.

Once folded, place on a baking tray, brush the egg yolk over the cookie and sprinkle with some sugar

Leave in the over for 15 mins.

If I could make some suggestions:

make them much smaller! Maybe so they can contain only one square of chocolate, once they are cooked they are pretty heavy.

Hope you enjoy!

Coming up next, 50 chocolate cupcakes with a special design! 🙂

Ciao for now! xx
