Not quite a Brownie. Not quite chocolate pudding. These chocolatey biscuits bridge the gap between the fudgy wonder of chocolate desserts and the portable dunk-ability of biscuits.
I based them on a chocolate slice I enjoy containing sweetened condensed milk. It gives them a chewiness and richness that replicates the texture of a brownie. I wanted this in a biscuit because I always make such a mess of cutting slices, but mostly because there is something a little more refined about a biscuit. Make no mistake however, while biscuits generally may be refined – these biscuits taste like Grace Kelly back-up dancing in a Beyonce video.
Alrighty. Now I’ve built them up, here they are…
Brownie Pudding Biscuits
1 ¼ cup self-raising flour
½ cup desiccated coconut
½ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
125g melted butter
200g sweetened condensed milk
150 mixed chocolate buttons
1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
2. Add all ingredients except chocolate buttons together in a bowl and mix until incorporated.
3. Stir through chocolate buttons.
4. Roll heaped teaspoons full of mixture into balls and place on baking paper-lined oven trays.
5. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow biscuits to cool slightly before moving (they’ll be too molten), then transfer to cool completely on wire racks.
