Romany Creams, one of South Africans favourite tea time treats. A crunchy chocolate flavoured biscuit sandwich together with good quality chocolate. Traditionally it’s made round but I’ve made them into squares as well! It’s a hit with kids as well. Instead of sandwiching together with chocolate, finish with a colourful smartie on top. Use a drop of chocolate to paste the smartie in place.

Ingredients:
2 extra-large eggs
¾ cup cooking oil
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
3 cups desiccated coconut
3 – 4 cups self-raising flour
125g soft butter
Cooking chocolate to complete

Method:
Cream the butter, sugar in a large bowl until light and creamy.
Add the eggs. Mix well.
Add the coco powder and stir to combine.
Gradually add the self-raising flour & coconut.
Mix by hand to make fairly stiff dough.
Roll out dough to 2-3mm thick on a lightly floured surface.
Using a fork, scrape lines over the dough to create a slightly rough texture.
Cut out round shapes with a biscuit cutter.
Transfer onto baking sheets.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for approx 8-10minutes.
Allow to the biscuits to cool on a wire rack.
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler.
Sandwich two biscuits together using the melted chocolate.
Leave to set. Yields approximately 40 complete biscuits

Cook’s Tip:
Place a piece of greaseproof paper or plastic wrap over the dough before rolling. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling pin.
