There are so many ways to make your butter biscuits fancy but one of our favourite methods is to dip them into chocolate. That is, ANY chocolate. White, dark, milk or a mixture.
It is a very simple technique to making your biscuit a little more elegant for a special occasion, gift or event. However, we want to give you some tips to getting the perfect texture to ensure it looks great. Today we share some tips on how to make sure your chocolate is perfect for dipping your biscuits in.
Firstly, start with enough chocolate so that the biscuit depth can be dipped in. For example, use a small deep cup so the biscuit doesn’t touch the bottom and you don’t need kilos of chocolate to fill a big bowl.
Secondly, use your Thermomix or Thermal appliance to melt your chocolate. This will give you a smooth and consistent result. Add 100g chocolate pieces to your bowl and chop 5 seconds/speed 9. Add 30g copha and melt 3 minutes/50 degrees/speed 3 or until completely melted. Pour into a cup or small deep bowl and then its ready for dipping your biscuits into.
Get to know your chocolate. Not all chocolate is created equal. Depending on the chocolate you use it may be too thick so we like to add some copha when melting it to make it smoother, thinner and easier to dip. Ensure it is completely melted before dipping your biscuits in so you don’t get lumps.
Lastly, have fun! You can create so many different patterns and styles with all the different types of chocolate flavours. It’s amazing how the butter biscuit can be transformed with a little chocolate. I’d love to see your creations so be sure to share them in our FAYI Facebook private group!
