Ingredients

  • 1 mug boiling water
  • 2 tbsps coffee
  • 500g chocolate chip cookies of your choice homemade or store bought!
  • 600ml  double cream
  • 2 tbsps icing sugar or condensed milk or to taste

Homemade cookies:

  • 125g butter (at room temperature)
  • 6 tbsps  sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Belgian chocolate chips / chunks (we use callebaut or Sainsbury Belgian chocolate)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or almonds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cup self raising flour (you may need more or less)

Method

  1. Recite Bismillah.
  2. Preheat oven to 180c. (skip to step 8 if you are using store bought cookies).
  3. Beat butter, vanilla, sugar & brown sugar till creamy.
  4. Beat in egg.
  5. Add chocolate chips, preferred choice of nuts, salt & enough flour to make a soft dough. Never add all the flour all at once. You may need less or you may even need more than stated.
  6. Place desired size ‘blobs'( not smoothed rolled balls) on a greased baking tray & bake at 180c for 10 minutes or till they come off the tray easily without sticking but are still soft.
  7. Allow to Cool completely before using in dessert. 
  8. Whip double cream with icing sugar till it just starts to form soft peaks.
  9. Dissolve coffee with water & dip the cookies for 2-5 seconds (according to preference of crunchiness). 
  10. In a dish of your choice place a layer of dipped biscuits in coffee.
  11. Cover biscuits with half of the cream.
  12. Place another layer of dipped biscuits & then spread the remaining cream on top.
  13. Dust with cocoa or grated chocolate or whatever you like! Chill for a few hours before serving. Enjoy!

TIp: If you are not a coffee lover, dip your biscuits in hot milk!
