Through the wonders of technology this post should be appearing on Tuesday (fingers crossed). I am away in Sydney this week and made these yummy biscuits on Saturday.
Rachel of Confessions of a Tangerine Tart chose this week's recipe for Chocolate Whopped Malted Drops, which is a bit of a mouthful but were easy to make and absolutely delicious! I actually made mine without Malteasers (which I think are the same as Whoppers in the states), instead using up a block of Whittakers Dark Ghana and a few mini Crunchies.
The taste test ...
These are rich, sweet and intensely chocolatey! Despite the lack of malteasers the malt flavour did come through from the malted milk powder. Due to the sheer volume of chocolate (I think I went a little overboard) they needed a lot longer than 2 minutes to rest when they came out of the oven. As soon as I tried to move one, the melted chocolate oozed out the bottom, stuck to the lifter and the whole thing broke apart in a gooey (albeit tasty) mess. The next lot I left for about 15 minutes and they were perfect.
I froze most of the batch but left a few out to snack on before we leave as well as some for the lovely people who are coming to look after our furbabies while we are away. Enjoy!
I have no idea what's coming up next week as I couldn't find it anywhere, so I look forward to being surprised!
