“Biscuit au Chocolat” or chocolate fudge cookies was a home-made childhood treat that I haven’t had in such a long time. Yesterday I was in the mood for something sweet and all of a sudden I remembered this long lost flavor.
I shot an email to mom in Lebanon and got her recipe a few hours later. We tried it in a heart beat and got such delicious, crunchy and rich chocolate cookies. So we decided to share the love!
Summary: This is a sweet chocolate cookies/fudge treat that kids and adults will love.
Chocolate Fudge Cookies Ingredients
- 70 plain sweet tea cookies (Ulker is a favorite but any will work)
- 3/4 cup of cocoa powder (plain, unsweetened – add more if you like dark chocolate)
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1 cup sugar (we used regular brown sugar and it was fine too)
- 1/4 pound of unsalted butter
- Coconut flakes (optional)
- In a saucepan and on low heat, warm the butter and sugar until they reach a boil
- Meanwhile, in a bowl use your hands to gently break the cookies into large crumbs of about 1 inch and mix them with the cocoa powder and the milk
- As soon as the butter boils, pour it on the cookies and mix gently
- Let the paste rest for 5 minutes and then while still warm line up a few spoons of the mix on an aluminum foil, and roll with hands into a ~ 10 inch long 3 inch thick roll.
- Place rolls in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
- Prior to serving remove rolls from fridge, unwrap them and cut them into round cookie disks with the desired thickness (1/2 to 2/3 inch thick). If you like coconut, feel free to sprinkle some coconut flakes on the roll prior to cutting it.
