As far as I’m concerned, the Milano cookie is an indulgence food. An exquisite combination of a biscuit cookie and a rich layer of dark chocolate.
So how about a copycat recipe for about half the price and an additional layer of love?
I brought home these two ingredients from a recent trip to the Dollar Tree:
1) a package of 36 biscuit cookies 2) a bag of chocolate chips.
That’s it. Two dollars total.
I melted the chocolate chips in a glass bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds, stirred, then microwaved for another 30 seconds.
The chips didn’t seem to have melted thoroughly, but when I stirred heartily, they melted into a deliciously smooth chocolate.
I spread a spoonful of the melted chocolate onto one of the biscuits, placed a second biscuit on top, then carefully added a little pressure to flatten the chocolate between the two biscuits
For a surprise finishing touch, I spooned some leftover chocolate into a baggie and used scissors to cut an ever so tiny snip in one corner.
What fun I had squiggling the chocolate over the top of each finished cookie!
And there you have it: a simple indulgence fashioned with love.
Add one piping hot cup of coffee or tea and you have simple indulgence indeed.
