It’s World Chocolate Day! And for the other million reasons we love chocolate here’s a recipe that will have anyone swooning in no time.
Viennese biscuits have been my all time favorite biscuits (if only calories didn’t exist ). These rich in texture and melt in the mouth delights is sure to be a crowd pleaser anytime. Here’s my tried and tested recipe for the Chocolate special:
125 gms , unsalted butter
6 tbsp , icing sugar
175 gms, self raising flour
3 tbsp cornflour
75 gms, melted chocolate
2-3 tablespoons, warm milk (if required)
1. In a mixing bowl, mix together butter and sugar using an electric beater for about 5-6 minutes or until light and fluffy.
2. Add to this flour and cornflour and gently fold in. Add melted chocolate and continue mixing until the batter is soft enough to pipe. ( if you require the consistency to be softer, add warm milk one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached )
3. Place batter in a piping bag using a rosette tip or any desired tip of your choice.
4. On a baking tray lined with baking paper, pipe out roses or any shape of the biscuits you prefer. Keep in mind to leave enough baking space between each other.
5. In a preheated oven at 160℃ , bake the biscuits for 10-15 minutes. Remove the biscuits from the oven and allow to cool. During this process the biscuits will harden . Store in an air tight box only.
6. For a richer chocolate taste, these biscuits can even be dipped in melted chocolate and stored.
