Chocolate biscuit bites


Those sweet snacks that crumble when you bite into them, reminds me of all those chocolate crackles I ate at birthday parties when I was in primary school. 

My crunch, catch and chew dance is synonymous with sweet bites like these. You crunch, quickly whip your spare hand underneath your mouth to catch those delicious crumbs and you chew with delight as all the flavours come together. In that order. 

While this chocolate slice is not much to look at - honestly it's ugly - the salty and sweet combination makes you want to come back for more and more. 

Ingredients: 
Biscuit base: 
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 75g salted butter (make sure to use salted)
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa
  • 175g coffee biscuits, crushed
  • 1/2 cup coconut 
Chocolate icing:
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon yoghurt
Method:
  • Melt butter 
  • Add sugar to butter and cook on low until dissolved 
  • Mix in cocoa powder
  • Crush half the biscuits finely and break the other half into 1/2cm pieces (for crunch)
  • Mix the biscuits and coconut together
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients together - if it's too dry, add a bit more butter
  • Line a 15cm x 8cm loaf pan with baking paper sprayed with olive oil
  • Push in the biscuit mixture into the pan until tightly packed down
  • To make the icing, sift the icing sugar and cocoa powder together and mix in yoghurt until smooth
  • Drizzle icing over the slice and cover with extra coconut 
  • Place in fridge overnight until firm
Fun farewell yoghurt fact: tubs of gin-flavoured yoghurt, containing 0.25% alcohol, went on sale in the UK this year.
