The recipe


Pour all ingredients onto a large bowl and knead with your hands into a dough. 

Leave to rest in the fridge for at least two hours.

Shape the dough into cherry-sized balls as they will grow during cooking.

Place the balls on a baking tray covered with baking paper and put in the oven for about 20 minutes at 170 degrees. 

Once cooked, remove the biscuits from the oven and put them on a cooling rack.

In the meantime, melt the chocolate in a double-boiler. When the biscuits are cool, spread a teaspoonful of chocolate over the smooth part of one biscuits, stick another one on top and let cool.
