Chocolate Sand Roses
Winter is coming! It’s that time of the year again; the time when you can snuggle up under a fluffy blanket, drinking a cup of your favourite coffee or tea (with a sip of milk for me, please…) while reading the last book of Joël Dicker. Well, that’s only if you don’t have exams in January, because then you would more probably be studying ten hours a day and be drinking two strong espressi per hour. But anyway, in both cases, something very important is missing; chocolate sand roses. You may wonder what that is and what it is made? of. Don’t worry, there is no sand in it; just chocolate, butter and cornflakes. By the way, chocolate is very good for stressful situations, Happy, so don’t hesitate, eat some (Please not too much, I don’t want to be responsible for your indigestion). Those chocolate sand roses are the perfect cookies, especially for students. They’re delicious, cheap, very easily and quickly made, and you don’t need any special equipment, not even an oven! And no one will notice if you use M-Budget ingredients, they’re still heavenly good.
So, what you need is:
200gr Milk chocolate
300gr Dark chocolate
1 small package of vanilla sugar
What you do:
Melt the chocolate, vanilla sugar and butter in a bain-marie or in the microwave (1 minute and then mix, and again 1 minute and mix, until it’s smooth).
Add this to the Cornflakes in a big bowl and stir.
Take two spoons and make small piles with the mixture on a non-sticking paper (I use the backing paper).
Let it harden.
And it’s ready to eat! Enjoy!
It makes a perfect gift for Christmas (well, if there is any left), especially if you want to impress your family with your cooking skills.
Don’t be shy, just try!
